Petals - Input EP
Empoisonné - EMPOIS001
Created during a time of social unrest and uncertainty, Empoisonné is the brand new label from Avernian, with fierce focus on the more industrial end of the musical spectrum.
The inaugural release comes from Petals, the new and exciting collaborative pairing of Avernian himself and Cressida, known for his incredible releases on labels such as Monnom Black, Body Theory & Voitax.
Entitled Input EP, the record is a breathless, white knuckle ride which sends the label hurtling out of the starting blocks in 5th gear. Things kick off with title track Input, a relentless, no holds barred Techno slammer with it’s high tempo and high energy creating an intense and utterly arresting experience. This is followed by Deficit, marking a change in style it’s informed by the deep swinging groove of it’s powerful kicks which are then drenched in a downpour of ferocious, acidic 303’s, progressing and crescendoing into a world of percussive ecstasy.
On the flip side we find Genetics, carrying an almost apocalyptic atmosphere with its ruthless, crushing drums and siren like sonics, seemingly beckoning mankind into a dystopian underworld. The project is then rounded off by a Peder Mannerfelt remix of the title track. It’s swelling and reverberating low-end and mechanical-like nature gives the track a life of it’s own and in turn creates an overwhelming assault on the senses.
