Out now: NEIKKA RPM - Rise of the 13th Serpent CD/2CD
After having unleashed the secrets of the Gemini Prophecies, the enigmatic persona behind NEIKKA RPM returned to the shadowy catacombs of New York where she broke the seal to breed a legion of demons, all in preparation for the "Rise of the 13th Serpent"... Over the curse of some 30 months, Dominique lured her carefully selected victims into the darkness of her studio to experience a host of wicked and intense recording sessions. Once fallen into her innocently disguised trap, her prestigious guests could only surrender and let her guide their voices through the shifting shadows of her hard industrial arrangements.
And this is how NEIKKA RPM's new album features the virulent venom of prominent male vocalists in the likes of Claus Larsen (LEAETHER STRIP), Claus Kruse (PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE), J3 (a;GRUMH...), Len Lemeire (IMPLANT), DJ Rexx Arkana (BRUDERSCHAFT/ FGFC820) and a unique spoken-word performance from the acclaimed Japanese cyberpunk author Kenji Siratori, all of which perfectly contrast Dominique's whispery incantations...
Musically, she brings her characteristic Industrial N' Beats furious style to the next level, adding more depth through intricate programming and distant comforting voices all ride a heavy wave of devastating dancefloor-crushing beats and mysterious textures. As usual, NEIKKA RPM again subtly conjures her secret composition tricks and sassy whispers to make you instantly fall victim to her eternal spell of seduction...
Hypnotic, dark and complex, this new album, "The Rise of the 13th Serpent" comes as a highly recommended sonic experience far away from the beaten path. Half-Angel / Half-Demon, Dominique also brings to us a luxury double-CD carton box edition of her new album for her staunch fanbase who will enjoy her bonus photos and poster as well as the 13 exclusive remixes featured on the second disc by acts like ADAM X, TERRORFAKT, MORPHINE SHOT, I :SCINTILLA, BRAINCLAW, DAWN OF ASHES, MASSIV IN MENSCH, IC434, KOBOLD, MODULATE, REVOLUTION STATE, etc.
