It is finally out!
I have been waiting for this EP since December 2017 when I first heard the beginning ramblings of the music my son was composing for this album. A long-time fan of his music, I have always said he was going to do great things in the music industry.
Opfer (as he likes to be called) picked up his first guitar at just 8 years old. It was an instant love affair. It became part of him and he a part of it. He was a natural, a pro, a musical protogy. Once he learned the cords there was no stopping him. By the time he was 16, he could literally play any instrument you placed before him no matter how obscure it was. He could listen to any song and within 5 minutes play it with those instruments like he had written them.
Opfer has many musical projects going at the moment. At just 25 he and his bandmate and longtime buddy already own their own record label ( Industriestandard Records)and recording studio. Some of his projects include:
Digital Hardcore veterans Ri0t_viRus have dropped a new album! A collaboration between IndustrieStandard and the legendary D-Trash Records, the groups latest effort takes aim at the Economic Elite, and anybody else who would wish to control the masses. It’s time to stand strong, unite, and oppose the oppression. “Resistance Is Fertile” is the perfect soundtrack for the revolution.
The album above hit number 1 on the Bandcamp where it stayed for many days.
MEMBERS: OPI SYNTHETIQUE(GUITAR/VOCALS), TW33Q(DRUMS)
GENRE: HARDCORE PUNK
BIO: IN MID 2007, OPI AND TW33Q BEGAN STATIC EGO AFTER FINDING OUT THEY HAD A SHARED INTEREST IN HARDCORE PUNK AND SIMILAR OPINIONS ON THE STATE OF SOCIETY AND POLITICS. WITH NEARLY A DECADE UNDER THEIR BELTS, STATIC EGO CONTINUOUSLY PROVES TO BE ONE OF THE MOST AGGRESSIVE PUNK BANDS AROUND. DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPICAL S.E. TRACK WOULD INCLUDE DESTRUCTIVE AND INTRICATE GUITAR LINES, BLISTERINGLY POWERFUL DRUMMING, AND AN INTELLECTUAL DIALOGUE ON SOCIOPOLITICAL ISSUES PLAGUING HUMANITY TODAY.
And FINALLY–the solo project I have been waiting on.
On the SonicTerror bandcamp page is the 8 track dystopian breakcore release from Trash.eater! The “Abstract Mechanism EP” features his raw power distortion and aggressive, terrorizing breaks. These 8 tracks thunder like an army of manufacturing equipment working in unison to produce a modern Frankenstein’s monster, the misunderstood offspring and unwanted result of a society built on empathy and self-absorption. While you were not looking this beast that would be misread is here to teach what you cannot see for yourself. Side effects may include manic behavior, wide spread disbelief in institutions, and, in some cases, cranial bleeding. Keep a towel handy …
The most exciting part of all of this is that Ri0t_viRus, Static Ego and Trash.Eater are going on a national tour starting in July. The dates I know of so far are:
Detroit, MI – July 6th – Trash.Eater @City Club w/ Limewax, Thrasher, GEIN, Delta 9
Ft Wayne, IN – July 14th (NEED VENUE) – Trash.Eater & Ri0t_viRus w/Delta 9, Biohazard40, Moondancer
Cincinnati, OH – July 22nd – Trash.Eater & Ri0t_viRus w/End.User @ The Mockbee
Indianapolis, IN – July 28th – Ri0t_viRus w/ Riot Division & Shoot on Sight
More dates will be announced soon. If you don’t see your city on here and want to see these guys live, go visit them on Facebook and send them a message. If you live in Ft Wayne and know of a venue they could use, please let them know. That one is going to be one heck of a show if they can find a venue.
