(Band Submission)

Review by Brayden Bagnall

Genre/s: Noise Rock, Industrial Rock, Post Punk
For Fans Of: Big Black, A Place To Bury Strangers, Pink City, Dreamdecay

Whether you're an analogue purist or digital fiend - we all know that drum machines have a place in heavy music. Big Black demonstrated this waaaay back in the 80s, and bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed have opened up a multitude of possibilities for up and coming grinders (for better, and for much, much worse). Bichkraft, much like AnB have seen the potential for crafting unique and exciting music via the drum machine, but instead of dialing in blast beats at 10bazillion bpm, they've opted for breakbeat/techno inspired drums. 
Thankfully you're not dealing with Venetian Snares-esque beats (though that would be interesting), rather they're more subdued, sophisticated patterns that weave in and out of the hazy guitar lines and droning passages of feedback. The vocals are hidden behind a layer of delay and buried into the mix, lending a pleasant, vaguely dystopian slant to the overall sound.
маскот is a seamless blend of organic and inorganic compounds, a combination that is both robotic and full of life. Cold and distant when it needs to be, energetic and groove-ridden when it's not.
