STATIQBLOOM - 'Asphyxia' : new album by US industrial electronic duo out now

Statiqbloom is the brainchild of German-born but Brooklyn, New York based musician Fade Kainer,
who is also known for his work in Theologian and the metal band Tombs. Kainer began Statiqbloom
in 2012 and released a debut EP the following year entitled ‘Mask Visions Poison’, which was hailed
as a return to old school industrial electronics a la Skinny Puppy and Front 242 and saw him
acknowledged as a refreshing new presence on the scene. A split EP and a pair of limited cassette
only titles followed before Kainer enlisted producer Denman C Anderson (known for his dark
electronic project Semita Serpens) to join him in Statiqbloom. Together they released the 2017
album ‘Blue Moon Blood’ and 2018 six track EP ’Infinite Spectre’.  
     
The duo have recently signed to Metropolis and are now ready to unveil a brand new album
entitled ‘Asphyxia’. Uncompromising, layered and brilliant, it draws further on the grittiness of early
80’s industrial music and EBM, combining hard beats and haunting electronics with disorienting
vocals to create harsh yet pulsating music that weaves a dark, hallucinogenic path of intricate and
bleak electronics.
