Alberich – the solo project of producer Kris Lapke – has just unleashed his new song “Chilsong Chamber,” which comes off of his impending full-length, Quantized Angel, due out on April 12th via Hospital Productions. Stream the new track, along with his other fresh song “Unity House” below.
“Offering his studio skills to big names including Prurient, Nothing and The Haxan Cloak, Lapke has developed a sonic footprint that spawns as much shock as it does awe,” reads a press release. “Alberich has achieved a cult on par with many of the legends he works with, and has built a career from outright destroying musical norms.”
As for the new album, “Quantized Angel is the first proper follow-up album to Lapke’s wildly (and rightfully) embraced NATO-Uniformen (2010) LP, a factory-made techno symphony that chews through 2-and-a-half hours. In the years since, Lapke has preened his output as Alberich, growing more nuanced and atmospheric, zeroing in on the delicate counterbalance between attack and release. Over the course of Quantized Angel’s eight tracks, Alberich demonstrates a vision of ruthless existential electronics, a sound both commanding yet questioning in introspective spirit.”
To celebrate Quantized Angel‘s release, Alberich will perform a record release show at NYC’s Brooklyn Bazaar on March 29th, serving as direct support for dungeon dweller Mortiis, and featuring openers Spite [TIX].
