The lp that spawned a tour. And LP that went back to its aggro electronic roots to win back fans who fled after the Neo folk sounding Art of Breaking Apart LP. The Hexfix93 was Attacked by a dog making this LP. The First Solo VAC LP with just Disease Factory AKA Hexfix93 Doing absolutely everything. Most past VAC release saw Hexfix93 doing 80%.
Bend the sky: The A side of the whole LP. Not sure how much club play it got. This is the poppiest track on the lp. I was trying to make a horror movie anthem and it turned into this disco depeche mode violator inspired drum work that pushed the song towards the dance floor. The vocals and melody were very inspired by the tear garden and the pink dots. I did this song right after the Cover of EVEN NOW WE DID.
Maldire: The title track. A throw back to calling of the dead. This time inspired by the vengeance of the fallen souls who were burnt out by the old christian cult. Vocals were inspired by Wumpscut and turned up way louder than most VAC tracks in all of history. Dustin Ferguson stepped in and helped make commercials and videos for this project. Maldire being the first. In the dario argento B horror film style.
Evoked: Yes there is a theme to this LP. Witchkraft and the occult. Evoked fused Hip Hop and horror movie sound track melodies and industrial vocals. Hey Dr Dre meet SATAN. YAY. This whole LP is a summons for justice. A curse against all abrahamic religions for all the people they have murdered in the name of their gods. This song in particular was aimed at the owner of the dog who attacked me when I was walking my dog on a leash in the park by my house. Their dog was unleashed and I had to pick up my dog and defend myself and my dog from this dog. It sucked.
Mysteric: The unknown is the law. The law of all. The mystery of what comes next many lie about it, pretend they know it all, no one does. The great beyond, the great unknown is the law. The return of the Access Virus to the VAC sound as well. Love it.
Ominous Rattle: I wrote these lyrics after watching fox news. Very influenced by old FLA and Aphex Twin.
EVEN NOW: I did this for the Maldire single that never happened because we ran out of time. I wanted this to be on Maldire, but putting covers on LPS is never a good idea. So we released this on the dependence comp and that is a super rare collectors item now. Still this came from the MALDIRE SESSIONS.
Maldire in my opinion is a very good aggro industrial LP that fuses strange music types into the genre. I feel like we did not market it correctly. We put a lot of effort into this release to only have it be forgotten 2 weeks after. We made videos and tried to make it very relevant on youtube. Still hope we can squeeze more life out of this LP. It is one of my favorites in the VAC catalog. This LP goes back to what made VAC big in the club scene years ago. Maldire(french: To Curse). And yes it is a curse to the evil of the past.
PS: Maldire was supposed to be a double LP. First half would be Aggro and evil. 2nd cd would be Surreal, Atmospheric, trip hop, club hit, slower pretty dark and melodic stuff. This stuff will be released soon working title is Mauvais. Not sure what we will call it when we release it. Still working on the vocals. Mauvais will come out in October with a massive merch pledgemusic campaign for it very soon.
Please buy this. It really helps us make the live shows better, it helps pay the bills and for the gear and software used to make this LP. I really work hard on this stuff and spend lots and lots of hours on it. It is a full time job now with all the touring.
