Alternative rock project The Feast releases new single ‘Victm’

The solo composer and performer of industrial-styled alternative rock known as The Feast has released his latest official single, “Victm.” The track has been proudly published on the Rebel Psalms independent record label without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Driving, chanting, pounding and aggressive, “Victm” showcases The Feast as one of the summer’s surprise rock standouts for 2018.

The Feast hails from New Jersey by way of Atlanta, GA. Asked to cite some main musical influences, The Feast names artists from disparate genres: hip hop’s Tupac Shakur and XXXTentacion, alt-rock’s Nirvana and Korn, and dancehall reggae’s Capelton. The Feast’s own sound on “Victm” cleaves to the industrial music power of bands like Rammstein, Nine Inch Nails and Pop Will Eat Itself while retaining a unique, live flavor that is all its own.

Also remarkable is that “Victm” has been concurrently released with a haunting a-cappella version, as well as an instrumental-only track.

Commenting on the overall themes of his latest track, The Feast is a man of few words, saying only, “This is vigilante music.”

The Feast has been an artist since childhood. His current official bio describes what it was like penning songs and poems with demons to exorcise.

I would awaken from dreams frustrated that I couldn’t remember the melody to songs I had written in my sleep,” he writes.

Sadly, life wasn’t about to get easier.

At the age of 17,” writes The Feast, “I was sentenced to 12 years in the Georgia prison system. During this time my music became dark, brazen, and resolute to combat the forces that sought to lead me into despair. The bounce of hip-hop could no longer articulate the screams that raged from my soul and I found a kindred in groups like Rage against the Machine.”

Nevertheless, “Victm” and other songs from The Feast accomplish more than catharsis. They’re victory marches.

My music is born from a dark place,” he says, “but always with a sense of triumph and resilience, even if it also carries that darkness with it. I make music for warriors, no matter your fight in life. It’s music for those who don’t mind fighting dirty.”

Victm” by The Feast is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, alt-rock and industrial fans.

UK electronica crew H2SO4 releases new LP ‘Under Control’

The masterminds of electronic dance music known as H2SO4 have released their new full-length album, “Under Control.” The record contains 11 original songs straight from the UK’s digital dance music underground for a blend of electronica, techno and rock that explodes from subwoofers with a power that hasn’t been heard since the industrial music scene. It has been released on the S16 independent music label. With elements of rock, punk, house, and much, much more, “Under Control” from H2SO4 has aggression, verve and soul in spades.

H2SO4 have been called “a band for the new dystopia,” their sound “post-apocalyptic.” A favorite rumor among fans once circulated that the trio met at a secret meeting for TNWOR, the New World Order Resistance. An old official bio from the band closes with the descriptive declaration: “In times of mass unemployment, ineffective policing and MPs’ deciding to give themselves pay rises, H2SO4 aren’t here to simply distract or entertain; they’re here to take over.”

If this sounds severe, the truth is that the H2SO4’s music sounds precisely so, but their revolution is much more danceable than one might detect from the above mission statement. Loaded with socially conscientious lyrics yet speaking often tongue-in-cheek, the group originally from Kent make it amusingly difficult to know when they’re being facetious.

One description of their sound reads, “If there were ever an underground party taking place in the sewers of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, H2SO4 would be the headliners – kicking off a musical rebellion while Winston Smith were having a not-so-nice time upstairs, peppered with sounds of totalitarian sirens and alarms.”

This is essentially the H2SO4 experience in a word, and the experience is good. H2SO4 being the chemical formula for sulfuric acid (historically known as oil of vitriol and as a chemical symbol of creativity) the band’s music has been elsewhere described as “burning you so smoothly you may not be aware it’s happening.”

True veterans of the UK underground, H2SO4 released their first official single in spring of 1998 when the European electronica scene was whirring at breakneck speeds. The track, “Little Soul,” was an instant radio favorite and by the year 2000 had broached international television. The limited release of the song led to its becoming a much sought after collector’s item.

The debut album of H2SO4, “Machine-Turned Blues,” hit shelves in 1999 on the Recon music label. Its “Imitation Leather Jacket” single burned through DJ playlists all over England and received more than a thousand plays on American radio. The Gavin Alternative Juke Box Jury awarded it their No.1 position. This was followed by their sophomore record, the year 2000’s “Glamtronica.” Numerous live performances commenced at home including a steady spot at Glastonbury, as well as in faraway locales like Chicago, Canada, and many more.

“Under Control” by H2SO4 is available online worldwide. Electronica fans should get in early on this one. Very early.
