Velvet Acid Christ : Maldire - CD Velvet Acid Christ : Maldire - CD  Ref: 20734 It's been over 20 years since Bryan Erickson founded the electro-industrial project Velvet Acid Christ, reknowed for its virtuosic and unique use of vocal samples and electronic effects. Based in Denver, Colorado, VAC-mastermind Erickson is no stranger to controversy, but both fans and critics alike can agree on one point: in contrast to the legions of "I'm so evil"-posers in the electro scene, Erickson is the real deal, steadfastly pursuing his own artistic vision without regard for trends past or present. His latest masterpiece "Maldire", out in Europe on 14. September, is no exception: "In September 2012 the world will be assaulted by an audio force that promises to make your ears bleed. The day will go down in infamy because VAC has returned to its evil roots of electronic dance music."

With artwork from Seven (Quartiert Macabre), "Maldire" will be available in a strictly REGULAR edition – no limited pressings, singles or gimmicks, just a strong 11 track album. With a mood ranging from haunting to threatening, the core of album is dedicated to the Northern European witchhunts and can be viewed as VAC's ode to old Norse Paganism. Upon the release of the last VAC album "The Art Of Breaking Apart", the press were stunned by the musical homages to Death In June and The Cure. "Maldire" completely eschew such acoustic elements in favor of deep psytrance ("Hyper Curse"), old-school electro ("Mysteric") and even a hat-tip to "Bunkertor 7"-era Wumpscut ("Maldire"). On "Maldire", Erickson returns Velvet Acid Christ to its dark-electro roots, providing a much-needed antidote to years of a market flooded by mediocre hellectro and aggrotech releases.
