Noise & electro meets black metal by Mumdance vs Altar Of Plagues protagonists
Dark electro, beats, and black metal guitar-riffs form the core of the radical sound of British duo Bliss Signal. The project is a collaboration between UK based grime-producer Jack Adams (Mumdance) and the black metal & electro of musician James Kelly (WIFE, Altar Of Plagues). Their different backgrounds result in an entirely new sound in which noise, obscure electro, and black metal fuse into one whole. Bliss Signal debuted in 2017 at the Unsound Festival (Kraków, Poland), where they created an awesome wall of sound live that was also captured on their impressive debut in 2018.
Basically: thumping, rattling and shaking of the highest class.
The Art Of Noise @ Café Central
In 1913, the Italian Luigi Russolo wrote a Futurist manifesto entitled The Art of Noises - L’Arte dei Rumori – in which he declared that music must adjust to the new industrial age and must be a reflection of the noisy city with its ‘hissing, beeping, humming, thumping, shuddering and shaking’. If Russolo hadn’t left us in 1947, he would shamelessly sate himself on the (claustrophobic) noise(-rock) and cutting-edge experimental electro that BRDCST presents in the year 2019 – with acts like Blanck Mass, Bliss Signal, Black Midi or Ipek Gorgun.
Base of operations is the nearby Café Central (Borgval 14), right near the famous Sint-Goriks Halls.
