Picture a dark and desolate road filled with industrial vocals, bleak soundscapes, thunderous percussion, and dance floor ladden hooks. A little bit of goth, a little darkwave, hints of drum 'n' bass, a doss of electronica....and you have Savak!

Biography

Savak is Scott Beebe, formerly of Holocaust Theory and label head of Possessive Blindfold/Unit. Started in 1997, Savak became Beebe's side project of Holocaust Theory. Savak was meant to be a musical outlet for Beebe's views on terrorism and counter-terrorism.
Savak first release was the highly anticipated "Four Hundred Forty Four Days" CD (Possessive Blindfold) in 2000. The music and ideology of this release was the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979 where American hostages were held captive in Tehran for 444 days. The music blended dark soundscapes with brutal industrial percussion and bleak soundtrack escapes.

Savak toured relentlessly in the USA, Latvia, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, France, and Germany for the Four Hundred Forty Four Days. The touring and the CD made Savak a name to be recognized in the dark industrial scene. Positive reviews from media made it even better.

2000-2002 saw Beebe writing material for the follow up release. The new release was to be based on the Taliban regime of Afghanistan. The CD entitled "The Taliban Pistol" was set be released in Sept. 2001 to coincide with Savak's tour of France and Germany. But with the events of 9/11. Beebe decided to postpone the release until March 2002. The European tour still went on where Savak performed new tracks of The Taliban Pistol in Paris, Bordeaux, and the fabled Maschinefest in Aachen, Germany.

The Taliban Pistol CD, released on Unit Records, featured remixes by Dryft, DJ Tron, Exclipsect, and Element 11 and went further into the depths of electronica where the new music explored elements of trip-hop, drum & bass, and ambient mixed with traditional industrial undertones. Again, reviews were great but Savak did not tour as much as before with this release.

Now.....over 2 years later, Savak is back with new music, a new release, and a new label! Fall of 2005 will find Savak doing a split CD with long time pal, Zymosiz, on the French M-Tronic label. This will be the 3rd release in M-Tronic's Chemical Elements series. 2006 will find Savak touring Europe with Zymosiz and doing limited shows in the USA.
