HIRAKI is a new constellation out of Aarhus, Denmark playing aggressive progressive noise rock from the edge of the world’s abyss and featuring members of LISERSTILLE. With a foaming mouth, vocalist Jon Gotlev sings, screams and recites his lyrics about Kafkaesque individualism, proletarian narcissism and narrow-minded upperclass-modernism – nothing less!
HIRAKI’s debut album Modern Genes contains 7 tracks and 20 minutes tough and direct introduction to their dystopian universe. Furthermore, the track Vision Skin features guest vocals by Filip Andersen from Copenhagen’s finest blackcore act Hexis.
The musical influences draw lines to bands as diverse as Daughters, The Locust, Aphex Twin and Nine Inch Nails. The result is a sound composed of everything from bombastic guitars, 80s crunchy synths and blast-drums to staccato anthems driven by sawing oscillators, hardcore grooves and progressive riffs.
“With the energy they throw into their music both on record and live, this is definitely a band to watch out for in the future.” – rockfreaks.net
“The Dillinger Escape Plan wird bald Geschichte sein; “Modern Genes” ist eine brauchbare Bewerbung für die Nachfolge!” – powermetal.de (8/10)
