News: Keygen Church To Release ‘Nel Nome Del Codice’ March 22

Keygen Church, the one man project of Victor Love, is set to release its new record Nel Nome Del Codice March 22 via Metal Blade Records. Church recently released a video for the track ““La Chiave Del Mio Amor” from this album, which you can view below.

You may recognize the name of Keygen Church’s brainchild, technologist and songwriter Victor Love (Vittorio D’Amore). He’s also known for his association with 8-bit rockers Master Boot Record (MBR). Love is notorious for writing and recording via undisclosed real-time stream events on which, if you’re lucky enough, you might just bear witness to Keygen Church’s spontaneous creative process.

Like previous alt code/text art-titled albums ░ ▒ ▓ █(2022) and ░█░█░░█░█░█░ (2022), Nel Nome Del Codice is a modern-primitive love letter to doom/gothic/black metal with foundations in Baroque-era Classical and Romantic-era music.

Love’s work in Keygen Church is fascinating, displaying how tech and music converge and marry in a world of ciphers. Fans will have to figure out where they’re used on Nel Nome Del Codice. For starters, the logo is ASCII art, a “graphic language” created by bulletin board system (BBS) users in the early days of the Internet.

Love states:

“My plans for Keygen Church are long-term. I am taking more pipe organ and piano lessons to bring this to the stage with my other bandmates in MBR. I’ll need to do it right or not do it all, though. That means I’ll have to figure out how to bring a pipe organ and piano live—or build a custom instrument. I want our first show to be in a church, and I’ve already got some ideas about how to make that happen. After, I’ll probably drop a new album, the follow-up to ‘Nel Nome Del Codice.’”

Regarding “La Chiave Del Mio Amor” Love comments:

“It’s a Baroque classical computer-generated fugue of pipe organs and piano with thundering drums, razor shaped synth metal riffs, and artificial choirs.”
