“Robot Metal” band ELECTROMANCY have transmitted a scathing cover of Darkthrone’s “Transilvanian Hunger” via Ghost Cult from their upcoming EP, “Robot Black Metal”. The song can be heard at THIS LOCATION.
Composed by a human, performed by actual robots, ELECTROMANCY redefines the primitive notions of “futuristic”. After struggling with chronic illness, composer Satyra became too disabled to continue to play instruments. Rather than give in, Satyra began building custom robots to play the instruments and unleash their music. The result is an unearthly black metal sound, impossible to replicate by mere humans.
ELECTROMANCY comments: “After two slow years of building robot instruments in the face of severe chronic illness, I am so grateful to make it to the point where I am releasing music from my robots. I hope people enjoy this cover and especially enjoy the music video to be released in a few weeks. Keep your eyes out for a ton of original music to follow shortly, and follow along with the crazy story of disability and robot metal“
“Robot Black Metal” is due out April 30th and can be pre-ordered HERE.
