FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
January 29, 2021 – Industrial/Darkwave artist DISSONANCE has revealed their new single & visualizer clip, “Damage: 1st Assault.”
STORY OF DAMAGE: “I Met MELODYWHORE when I was featured on his radio show RADIO DARK TUNNEL SITUATION 47 (co-hosted by the incredible SAPPHIRA VEE). I mentioned I had been pining to work on some more aggressive tracks and this was the result. We liked the original- “Damage 1st Assault” so much that we did a second version. Damage 2nd Assault will be released by MELODYWHORE a few weeks after the DISSONANCE release. “
– Cat Hall (DISSONANCE)
“Fans of the halcyon days of the first DISSONANCE album can rejoice, for Damage-1st Assault ups the ante with a more vicious and vibrant volley of industrialized melodic force. Cat Hall’s voice sneers with both seething vigor and sensuous energy amid the abrasively rhythm sounds of Melodywhore, the metallic klanks striking like the march of an approaching automaton with malicious intent; all the while, Hall harmonizes with herself to create lush ambient layers amid these pulsating instrumentals, recalling the energy that we first felt from Dissonance’s 1997 debut, but with a distinctly up-to-date feel.
Add to that some equally powerful remixes, from the blunt percussive force and robotic vocal treatments of Joe Haze, to the funkier bass lines and brassy upbeat stabs of Steven OLaf sounding like James Brown hanging out in the old WaxTrax! Records store, along with Jon Von Hermann’s chugging guitar-driven mix sounding like a throwback to ’90s coldwave, while Glenn Kirchner is sure to send you running right to the dance floor.”
