NEW ALBUM BY US-BASED INDUSTRIAL-ELECTRO ACT VELVET ACID CHRIST WILL BE OUT ON 9th AUGUST 2019 VIA METROPOLIS
Velvet Acid Christ is an electro-industrial group based in Denver, Colorado and led by vocalist, musician and producer Bryan Erickson ever since its inception in 1994. Named ‘in honour of a bad acid trip’, VAC have built a large following in the industrial, goth and EBM scenes worldwide over
the course of a dozen album releases and numerous tours.
‘Ora Oblivionis’ is the first new studio record by VAC since 2014’s ‘Subconscious Landscapes’ and is the group’s most musically varied release to date.
Erickson states that the album “is inspired by self-destruction. A very analogue sounding record, it has hardcore industrial dance songs, a minimalist goth dance track [‘Trash’], a dreamy piano soundscape [‘Colors Of My Sadness’], catchy industrial metal [‘Twist The Knife’] and our tribute to George Romero [‘Romero’]. The song ‘Conjuro’, written in a hotel a long time ago, is maybe the most commercial sounding track with Spanish guitar and melodic music. We took our time to make sure that every song was good.”
A limited deluxe edition of ‘Ora Oblivionis’ contains a bonus album featuring early unreleased songs by VAC.
