They are back for more. Aesthetische is the musical return of Fab Viscardi and Gui Pires of Aghast View and Biopsy to the hard industrial dance / electronic scene after a hiatus of almost 8 years!
Aesthtetische’s electronic sound aims at diversity on the EBM genre and carries craft and complexity to the composition paired with a well rounded production and modern programming technique. Tracks vary from mid tempo solid EBM to more fast paced outbursts of synth layers and beats.
Aesthetische is influenced by all sorts of electronic music, not only hard electronics, but all forms of electronic expression. Influences from Rock, world music, contemporary music also play a part on AE’s sound.
The result is obviously a modern EBM sound with elements that will please from 242 and Front Line Assembly lovers to modern trancers.
Lyrics are quite on the positive side and carry positive and uplifting messages as well as hard protest messages. Aesthetische’s message is a bit far from the nightmare / horror type lyrics common to the EBM / Industrial genre. That is a difference in our view of life musically as well.
Aesthetische’s artwork tries to captures the essence of their sound in images – Hard but aesthetically pleasant.
