New album out on May 26th!
HIRAKI is an absolutely new constellation out of Aarhus, Denmark playing aggressive progressive noise rock from the edge of the world’s abyss. With a foaming mouth, vocalist Jon Gotlev sings, screams and recites his lyrics dealing with Kafkaesque individualism, proletarian narcissism and narrow-minded upperclass-modernism – nothing less!
HIRAKI’s debut album 'Modern Genes' will be released on May 26 via Enough Said Music. It’s mixed by Klaus Q (Beta Satan/Fossils/Oxx) and mastered at ET Mastering. 'Modern Genes' contains 7 tracks, providing a 20 minutes tough and direct introduction to HIRAKI’s dystopian universe. Furthermore, the track 'Vision Skin' contains 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.
