/Welcome to the Future/162/Livestreams and new releases 12-Feb 2021

Bandcamp Friday last week was so busy that I’ve got yet more releases from it to mention this week, and it’s busy enough anyway this week. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both.

/Releases out today or recently
LINGUA IGNOTA / Agnus Dei EP /Bandcamp
An intriguing, short covers EP that shows, as ever, LINGUA IGNOTA’s extraordinary reach of influences.
Heavy Water Factory / Data Lines EP /Bandcamp
A new EP from this ever-excellent electro-industrial artist.
A. A. Williams / Songs from Isolation /Bandcamp
A collection of the excellent covers A. A. Williams has been releasing over lockdown.
Aborym / Hostile /Bandcamp
Well this is a change – I was not expecting an album of 90s-esque industrial rock and grunge sounds. These industrial-black metal legends confound expectations once again…
Blockdata / Vacuum Decay EP /Bandcamp
Four tracks of fantastic drum’n’bass that should be top of your purchase list this week.
Solar Fake / Enjoy Dystopia /Bandcamp
Not heard from this band in a little while, but I know many friends love this electro-industrial group.
PARA LIA / Gone With the Flow /Bandcamp
Buzzing, darker-edged alternative rock from this German band. I really like lead single My Muse, and expect to hear that at /TheKindaMzkYouLike/010 on Tuesday.
Various Artists / The Black Heart /Bandcamp
London label New Heavy Sounds offer up a compilation to help the Save the Black Heart campaign.
ACTORS / Strangers /YouTube
The quite brilliant new single from ACTORS, taken from their upcoming new album.
I LIKE TRAINS / The Truth (Vessels Remix) /Bandcamp
One of the strongest, most scathing songs from the /amodelofcontrol.com album of the year 2020 gets a thoughtful electro reworking by Vessels.

/Upcoming releases announced this week
26-Feb-21 / Various Artists / 11 Years Of Chaos compilation album /Bandcamp
No festival from Chaos Theory, sadly, this year, so there’s an excellent-looking compilation instead.
19-Mar-21 / Ruby / Salt Peter /Bandcamp
A vinyl re-issue of the groundbreaking debut album from Ruby.
26-Mar-21 / Dead Animal Assembly Plant / Bring Out The Dead /Bandcamp
American industrial-metal band who’ve been making waves of late finally announce their new album.
09-Apr-21 / Kauan / Ice Fleet /Bandcamp
Striking Russian post-metal, with an intriguing concept set in icebound seas.
16-Apr-21 / C R O W N / The End of All Things /Bandcamp
Gloomy, pitch-dark industrial metal. I like the new single Illumination a lot, it reminds me of Misery Loves Co..
16-Apr-21 / Clicks / G.O.T.H. /Bandcamp
The new album from Polish artist Kr-lik (who used to be Controlled Collapse). This is rather lighter, less oppressive industrial-pop in many respects, at least based on single I Dream.
23-Apr-21 / Nordgeist / Frostwinter /Bandcamp
Four songs of epic, experimental Black Metal from this mysterious artist.
23-Apr-21 / Paysage D’Hiver / Geister /Bandcamp
Raw-as-hell, atmospheric Black Metal that’s a fascinating listen.
TBC / Slighter / VOID /Bandcamp
Announced and confirmed, but no release date yet – the new album from industrial-electronic artist Slighter.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events
Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week
/Tuesday Ten/443 will come next week, as well as hopefully, another new interview. A new batch of short reviews in the /But Listen series is also intended to come soon, too.

Coming up this week are the following Livestreams:TheKindaMzkYouLike/010/Alternative music from the 90s and more on Tuesday, and then Stormblast/147/Extreme Metal on Thursday. The next upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here.
