CorpseGrindr ~ Indie electronic-based artists Cyber Shaman, melodywhore, Upon Eventual Collapse and Skye Schrei bring you a new collaboration project, Corpsegrindr The project idea started around early to mid-2019 where Cyber Shaman and melodywhore had just wrapped a dark techno collab and were looking for the next thing. An “electro-industrial” project was considered and an EP was planned with a female vocalist. Six initial tracks were started and then sat for the rest of the year.
Skye was approached around fall 2019 after contributing to the melodywhore track “The Devil’s Doorbell” to be the voice of the project and she immediately joined. It wasn’t until early 2020 that the project was reinvigorated – Upon Eventual Collapse was brought in to contribute his guitars and “industrial” sound. The decision to focus on a single release was made and work commenced on releasing a Nine Inch Nails cover and a melodywhore cover as an introduction to the new project. https://twitter.com/corpsegrindr
The Impersonators ~Comprising Tom Tikka and lyricist Antti Autio, The Impersonators are just that: a duo which masquerades as a full band and does everything it can to defy convention – whether that being their insistence on avoiding touring or their songs, which home in on the warts-and-all gnarliness of love and real life. In fact, if one were to find a common theme that runs through the group’s entire catalog it would probably be how life very seldom resembles or turns out like Disney fantasies. check them out on twitter @1mpersonators
Vix20~ is Gary Mills and CJ, two music industry veterans who grew so disillusioned with the state of every element of the music industry that they both walked away vowing not to return…fast forward a few years, now rejuvenated, though no less prickly about the Modern Age, they return, to quote the band themselves, “we’re hard rockers turned to the dark side of pop”. As evidenced in their single, Digital Age, their passion for power-pop (don’t say ‘punk-pop’ to them, it suggests too much jumping around) and dexterity with words combines to become insanely catchy 3-minute thunderbolts.

Kish Kollectiv!~ of Italo-Celtic stock into a slowly rusting northern England in the throes of Thatcher-era de-industrialization, the young Michele Sarto (“Mike” to those closest to him; other people just can’t pronounce the name properly) was bitten by the horror bug early. After having been “encouraged” to sit through an uncut version of Lucio Fulci’s surreal schlock masterpiece “City of the Living Dead” at the age of 6 by mischievous elder cousins, a lifelong fascination with the darker side of fiction was born. Equally haunted and excited by aftermath images of reanimated corpses, horrific “skull-crush” kills and a young woman literally vomiting out her innards, another element of that particular production was to make an indelible impression on the young Sarto; the maestro Fabio Frizzi’s masterful synthesizer-driven score. https://twitter.com/KishKollektiv
