Heavy blown-out synth beats and guitars crush as moltenous circuitry solidifies. M.V. Carbon and J. Gräf create a terrain that loops, pulses and whines. They dig deep to uproot sedate landscapes.
Collaborating from Baltimore (Graf) and Brooklyn (Carbon), these two highly respected badass archomusicians are former members of influential Chicago noise quartet Bride of No No. Ten years of working together has deepened their tense dynamic as improvisers and composers. They’re livewires.
Overdriven tube amps, vintage analog synths, AM radio static, tape loops, and jagged shards of guitar build a swarm of pulses that punctuate their demonic dub-rock noise vocals.
Victim of Space, the sixth Metalux album, doesn’t refer to outerspace, but suggests existence within an abstract space that is capable of destablizing the normal behavior patterns, personality traits and manners of the “victim.” Victim of Space collides the worlds of noise and rock, rewrites the rules on sound, creates a beehive of power codes. Clears a space for discomforting/beauteous nuance.
