Electronic Substance Abuse signs with WTII
October 10, 2014
Dark electro/power noise act, Electronic Substance Abuse (a.k.a. ESA) has signed a new deal with Louisville based WTII Records, LLC. Born in 2002, Jamie Blacker created ESA as musical outlet to cross the threshold from one genre of extreme music to another. Blacker, up until this point, had been writing music semi-professionally for years in the UK black/death metal scene, touring and recording alongside some of the most respected acts in the scene. Having decided to experiment in Dark Electronics, ESA's heavy, rhythmic style has since then been at the forefront of the power electronics / harsh industrial scene, predominantly owing to slews of powerful and engaging live shows and 6 well received, critically acclaimed albums.
ESA's sound is always a hard one to pin down. Taking influences initially from rhythmical noise acts, the overall structures have developed and integrated countless influences from the broad spectrum of alternative and extreme music. The tone of ESA is harsh and oppressive, dripping with destructive and corroded grooves whilst still emanating sub conscious melodies and a strong sense of Spirituality. ESA's compositions are undoubtedly threatening and offensive floor stomping club tunes but also twist and churn enough to warrant more attentive listening.
With the much revered "Themes 1& 2" releases causing such a stir within the noise and harsh industrial scene, Blacker is now working hard on the closing album to this destructive trilogy, tentatively being marked for a Spring/Summer 2015 release!
Stars Crusaders joins WTII
August 28, 2014
Italy's Electro Sci-Fi/synthpop innovators, Stars Crusaders, have signed a deal with Louisville/Chicago based WTII Records, LLC. The Stars Crusaders formed in the spring of 2014 after Davedax, Symorg and Yeda received a summons from the ancient order to unite and defend the planet from otherworld invaders. Joined together by a love of electronics and Sci-Fi, the trio has created the soundtrack to an epic adventure through the stars by blending powerful rhythms, ethereal melodies and space inspired lyrics.
The trio will premiere their new style of music, dubbed Electro Sci-Fi, in September with the release of the digital single, Aeterna. Featuring remixes from Dupont and Nordika, Aeterna will serve as a nice introduction to the band and be a solid lead up to the Stars Crusaders debut album, New Horizons, scheduled for release on November 11th.
