Hive is bringing the fucking beats back for summer! ESA's debut album "Devotion, Discipline, and Denial" is due out August 15th on Hive Records - expect hard, evolving rhythms that will strain your speakers as well as your ear drums. Dark, brooding, and gritty as hell. ESA's massive, corrosive beats form the thorny spine on which agitated, sinister atmospheres hang - there is more songwriting to the compositions, more evolution and intent to the songs than the mindless, meandering beats that have come to define powernoise. This is the next generation of aggression in electronics, and we are very pleased to bring these punishing beats to your hungry ears.
ESA are poised to become the standard by which all distorted beat artists are measured. Mastered by Josh Collela, and featuring an absolutely spine-grinding remix by Scrap.edx.
Also out on August 15th from Hive is the brand new CD by Prometheus Burning! "Beyond Repair" is the sound of skyscrapers imploding - acres of wreckage careening, colliding, and smashing to dust, condensed into one immensely satisfying mindfuck. 11 tracks of propulsive noise, hard as iron beats, and deceptively infectious dancefloor barrages. Prometheus Burning bring the satisfying destructiveness back to industrial music - this is no distorted pop, no trance music about war. This is big fat noisey sledgehammer beats, razorwire vocals, and constantly morphing tortured electronics.
Having recently appeared alongside Xanopticon, Dev/Null, and Duran Duran Duran on the "Jagoff Uprising" double-12" from Thaco Records, Prometheus Burning is ready to see wide release and send a few kids home crying from the clubs with bones pounded into gelatin. "Beyond Repair" features the intensely irresistable dancefloor landmines "Some Things are Meant to Stay Broken" and "Significantly Altered."
Check out the Hive Records website for new MP3s from the Prometheus Burning and ESA CDs, or head over to our Myspace page for a couple streaming clips.
Both new CDs are available for preorder from Hive Records now! You know you need some stomping fucking rhythm in your life...
