The Blackened Music Series is proud to present an intimate show with Zombi, the leader of today’s new generation of synth bands. Zombi perfected the cosmic, psychedelic, horror-filled synth rock of Goblin and John Carpenter, and at their peak, split into off solo projects and new directions. This is their first headline show in four years. Listen to some of their excellent catalog now right here.

Gatekeeper is a hyper-creative electronic duo who began in the Goblin/Zombi mold with their excellent Optimus Maximus EP. They have since evolved fast into an ”evocative, maniacal, and unapologetically garish sound [that] Gatekeeper have honed to a fine art. This night celebrates their newest beast Young Chronos, which is being released as a free Pirate Bay torrent. Read an interview and listen to the record here.

Vissacoor is the darkwave side of Night Slugs’ L-Vis 1990 and Massacooramaan, crossbreeding techno, industrial and club music. Download a track here.

Dariius, Rene Hell collaborator, formerly of Raccoo-oo-oon and Driphouse, represents the sound of Control. Listen to the EP here.
