The Axis of Perdition

The Axis of Perdition's debut album decreed that 'Axis of Perdition plays something there isn't words for yet (exclusively)' and this remains self evident today as the listener is trapped somewhere between black metal experimentation in industrial and dark ambient textures and an aural manifestation of the blood, rust, and urban decay of a world the band draws their inspiration from.

The Axis of Perdition's debut album decreed that 'Axis of Perdition plays something there isn't words for yet (exclusively)' and this remains self evident today as the listener is trapped somewhere between black metal experimentation in industrial and dark ambient textures and an aural manifestation of the blood, rust, and urban decay of a world the band draws their inspiration from.

The horror aspect of the music deriving from a collection of short stories written long before the band was conceived is the most prevalent part of the music today. Tapping inspiration from H. P. Lovecraft and the Silent Hill series as well as the urban desolation that surrounded them, they drag the listener through a disturbing and dissonant soundscape.

The music is created much like a soundtrack, often having no typical verse-chorus structure, often lacking any repetitive riffs, leaving the music to flow freely through multiple layers of guitar whilst the synthetic battery of the drum machine keeps tempo. This, interspersed with atmospheric ambience and the unnerving disquiet of industrial noise as well as abstract sampling make for a challenging listen to those unfamiliar to this genre of music. « hide
