We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Panicker’s new song “Blasphony” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP by the same name, which is scheduled to be released on October 5, 2018 through Three One G Records. You can pre-order the EP here.
Brent from Panicker commented on the song:
‘Blasphony’ was written along with the songs on the LP, but seemed to sit apart so I saved it for a future release. As with the rest of the Panicker stuff, the audio and dynamics are fairly destroyed, giving it a lo-fi-ness; the title comes somewhat out of that.
Blasphony EP Track Listing:
1. Sticky Riot of Colors
3. Tall Satanists
About the artist:
Beginning with a music career in San Diego, which included playing drums, bass, keyboards, guitars, and sometimes dancing in several bands with Rob Crow (Thingy, Pinback, Goblin Cock, Optiganally Yours, etc.), as well as contributing to other projects like Aspects of Physics and Followers, doing a solo project called schlag-schlag, and having a career producing music for advertising; Brent Asbury has experience in many musical areas and genres.
Since his time in California, he took up producing and engineering at his current studio in Portland, OR – anything over the years from The Locust to Michael Bolton. Of course, then, it might be hard to imagine what his own dissonant brainchild might sound like today. The answer is, surely, none of the above – or at least, unlike any one conventional category. Asbury describes Panicker as “blending aspects of EBM, industrial, techno, hip hop, and horror movie scores.”
Since its inception he has brought his amalgamation of dark dance beats to Dead Cross with a blistering remix of the song “Shillelagh,” featured on the band’s most recent EP on Ipecac Recordings. With the release of his newest EP, Blasphony, Panicker continues to master its unique voice, sans vocals.
