Video Premiere: Deathsomnia – ‘Akinesia’

Darkwave up-and-comers Deathsomnia are a UK/EUR-based three-piece that bring forth a sound that emanates from dystopian punk soundscapes enveloped in raw emotion, industrial climactic momentum and live energy.  The band’s ten-track debut album, You Will Never Find Peace, is set for release on September 3 via Berlin’s Isolation Records.

New Noise are proud to premiere the video for “Akinesia” below:

The creative synergy between Deathsomnia’s multi-instrumentalist members  and their individual punk, hardcore and electronica backgrounds, are the source for You Will Never Find Peace’s unique dystopian punk and industrial sound and genre-bending originality. Their groovy riffs and crashing percussions draw influences from Wipers, Dead Moon, Health and Godflesh, the beguiling vocal melodies are dressed undertones of Depeche Mode and Primal Scream.

You Will Never Find Peace also features notable collaborations from Gabriel Franco (Unto Others, formerly known as Idle Hands), Kyle Kimball (Nothing, Night Sins) and a remix by Selofan. Additionally, Mike Sharp (Uniform) plays drums on the album and Dwid Hellion (Integrity) provided the artwork.  The album was mastered by Arthur Rizk (Prurient, Power Trip, Code Orange) and produced by Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Cold Cave, Ceremony); the latter describes Deathsomnia’s blending of subtle industrial elements into guitar-driven songs as “cyberpunk and a welcomed break from current popular darkwave aesthetic tropes.”

On the track’s release, Kadri Sammel states:

“The origin points of ‘Akinesia’ are night terrors and sleep paralysis, where reality becomes a distortion, and the body is contained and powerless. In a state of fear and disorder, a primordial dichotomous perception guides the way, birthing demons. The visuals in the video are inspired by psychedelic horror films and vintage macabre art and memorabilia.”
