With his dark ambient project APOCRYPHOS (with several releases out on CRYO CHAMBER and CYCLIC LAW) , Robert Kozletsky has shown a proven ability at creating multi-layered and highly detailed soundscapes.
Working as a duo alongside Kyle Carney, he takes that skill and applies it to his death industrial alter-ego, SHOCK FRONTIER, carving out a sound residing somewhere between the "new wave" of American power electronics (The Vomit Arsonist, Steel Hook Prostheses) and the classic sound of Cold Meat Industry (Deutsch Nepal, Megaptera).
"Tumult" is a world enveloped in a perpetual haze of post-apocalyptic soot and radioactive ash, where deadening percussion, reverberating factory drones, samples, and atmospheric washes of hostile electronics churn and whirr into a polluted, endless expanse.
The follow up to 2013's debut Mancuerda Confessions, Tumult is a more intricate, more oppressive, and more finely honed release, and a logical extension of the Shock Frontier sound.
Featuring contributions by: GNAWED, KRISTOFER OUSTAD and NOCTURNE.
