"CD Review - DEPRAVITAE - Apocalypticusadisticon"

Self described as "the resurrected abortion of rapists' seed," Depravitae is the first Eugene-based industrial band that I've ever heard of. Before meeting Gideon Gash and Razor Praizer one night at my DJ gig, I didn't think anyone in Eugene even listened to industrial music.
Their forthcoming album Apocalypticusadisticon evokes memories of old goth club-nights I used to go to as a teenager growing up in Honolulu. I remember doing my hair like Robert Smith, painting my nails black and smearing my lips with oxblood red lipstick and hitting the Sub Club. Hundreds of candles illuminated the rooms, as whips and crops whacked against bare skin. People shackled themselves to crosses, hanging totally nude for the entire night. Above all the depravity we danced as the DJ spun Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy and KMFDM.
Apocalypticusadisticon harkens back to those good ol' days. I don't think anything could make me dress up like I did back then, but thanks to an advance copy of Depravitate's forthcoming album, I'm reminded why I appreciate the music of bands like Skinny Puppy. Apocalypticusadisticon captures the necessity of the electronic sound in industial music: the blips, drum machine snare whaps and creepy samples of babies crying really bring back memories. — Steven Sawada

APOCALYPTICUSADISTICON (Released:10/31/07 on Malbogia Records, Distributed by & Super-D Distribution)



Established in December 2004 and based out of Eugene, Oregon, DEPRAVITAE was the creation of Gideon Gash (lead vocals/programming), in an attempt to bring an evolutionary genre to the industrial music scene. Having experience in the hardcore techno genre as a DJ, Gash decided to take his musical knowledge and create a band that would outlive the stereotypical “fads” and “new crazes” of musical standards.
Taking his love for horror films and industrial metal, along with the aid of original bassist Das Stilla and guitarist The Scourge; he set forth to create the sound that fit the band’s namesake. Deciding to keep the band’s musical lineup simple, they decided the best bet would be to program all the songs without the need of a live drummer. With musical influences that span a generation, from Tchaikovsky to Mudvayne, with a little Rammstein fit in, the band has engineered a sound that is both recognizable and satisfying to the eardrums. After recording and finalizing all the tracks for the album “Apocalypticusadisticon”, as well as creating new personas for all the main characters in the band, it was time to create a visual image. Particularly fond of the Clive Barker “Hellraiser” series of movies, Gideon began fabricating set designs and costumes for their live stage shows.
Once that was complete, DEPRAVITAE began booking shows. At a live stage performance by DEPRAVITAE, you are taken into a new world, filled with scantily clad women, blood-stained staged ritual sacrifices and music that leaves you shivering for more.
DEPRAVITAE shares a wide audience of music fans, promoting throughout the USA as well as Europe and Asia via their MySpace page,, as well as through their own website . Not only do they cater to the industrial music fans, but the electronica, metal and gothic scene as well. Not to mention the fans that just love their stage performance and characters’ personage.
