Active from the late 1980s through to the present day Contrastate follow up their live album “No Eden without annihilation with two brand new tracks developed for their new live show The Illusion of Power.

Brexit: a dark tunnel driven by fear and past anger and the desire for war against the other, or a symbol of Europe’s popular imagination breaking free from its disaffection to re-invent itself.
Is the real price war by any means necessary?

A sonic soundtrack to an apocalyptic world that is hypnotic, yet still full of dynamic sounds and shifts.
Their sound insinuates itself somewhere inside the dark ritual ambience of the electronic avant-garde shot through with a vein of experimental noise and sarcophetic vocals strewn amongst industrial surrealism.
Limited to 31 hand-numbered lathe-cut copies.

A) War against the Other   [8.30]
