Vampillia (Important Records / Virgin Babylon Records) from Osaka, Japan is a ten-piece ‘brutal orchestra’ mixing noise, heavy metal guitars, neo-classical srings & piano, and operatic vocals, with Tatsuya Yoshida (of Ruins) on drums.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=3257700860 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
“The haunting, orchestrated dirges and bizarrely Scandinavian-indie-band sensibilities somehow fuse together to create something both utterly fierce and deranged yet beautiful and almost childishly innocent…It’s like some sort of ‘Hansel And Gretel’-like fable, except one where Hansel stabs Gretel to death with a rusty screwdriver and then spends far too long gazing out to sea thinking about what he’s just done.” (thequietus.com)[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=2369803075 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
Nadja (Gizeh Records / Consouling Sounds / Important Records) is a duo from Toronto, Canada (but currently based in Berlin) making ambient/experimental/shoegaze/doom music.
“The smoggy haze of fuzz and scuzz that permeates the Berlin-based doom-gaze duo’s albums is so relentless and all-consuming that it starts to feel as comforting and commonplace as oxygen” (pitchfork.com)
Nadja and Vampilia have collaborated twice, the results of which were released via Important Records and Throne Records respectively.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=943729800 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
Violent Magic Orchestra, a more electronic-oriented side-project of Vampillia, and Ruins Alone (Tatsuya Yoshida) will open the night.
