VA - ERVA001


    It seems that industrial electronic music has really taken off in France in the recent couple years. We've seen quite a few labels and artists emerge and create a movement from nothing - Eradys Records is an appropriate example of that. The label itself was brought into existence in 2016, and has since been actively enforcing its brand of noisy, crude, unpolished, and straight-to-the-warehouse type of techno with an array of unknown artists making their debuts, becoming both the part of Eradys Records' roster and French new wave of underground industrial techno.

    ERVA001 is Eradys Records' eighth release and also their first VA, traditionally accompanied by a high-resolution, Gustave Doré-authored artwork, depicting one of the chapters from Dante Alighieri's Divina Commedia, together with an applicable quote from the book. It features 12 tracks and the same amount of artists, ranging from those that have a few EPs behind them, to those that have yet to put together a solo release. The tracks' tempo averages around 138 BPM, although it can go as low as 132 and as high as 148 BPM; whatever the case, intensity levels are high and the spectrum is completely packed with elements most of the time. You will encounter armies of rogue, distorted kicks, dense, noise-shaped bands, predominantly acidic basslines and unusual voice segments if forms of choral singing and movie quotes.
