Unhuman premieres ‘Absurdity, Privilege Of Men’ | Liber Null & Potnia Theron’s Absolute’ featuring Drew McDowall of Coil

Berlin-based electronic artist Unhuman is premiering today his latest track Absurdity, Privilege Of Men, a disconcerting cacophony of noise accentuated by the graphic cover art on the EP containing the track—Devour Wrath Without Shame—which depicts a visceral demonstration of castration that is indeed not for the faint of heart.

Here is the official description of the EP courtesy of the label Instruments of Discipline:

Devour Wrath Without Shame sees Unhuman return to his original vision of dystopic noise, a pure, uncut vision of our darkest times, alive nightmares, everything we despise, unwanted and disconcerting, the rotting core of a concrete dimension.”

The song’s premiere heralds an Unhuman dj gig at Berlin Electronic music event Liber Null and 
Potnia Theron’s  Absolute on Thursday, November 16th, featuring Drew McDowall, Alessandro Adriani, Sekunde, and Nullam Rem Natam.

Unhuman – resident and founder of Liber Null together with Sekunde from Fleisch are on closing duties, uniting their darkest sounds. Nullam Rem Natam in search of spirals and serpents, will create and destroy their exegesis of absolute truth.

Drew McDowall

During the tumultuous 1980’s, Drew McDowall found himself in the ranks of Genesis P-Orridge’s Psychic TV collective and collaborating with the arcane occult duo comprised of former Throbbing Gristle creator Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson and the enigmatic John Balance who had been creating esoteric and progressive electronic music under the banner of Coil. It was during these formative collaborations with Coil that McDowall saw himself shift from occasional contributor to austere full-time member. McDowall’s impact on the band’s sound was immediate, and apparent, as the releases transformed from their previous avant-pop signature to a more complex and methodic electronic imprint accompanied by even more abstruse subject matter and abstract formulations than previous years. McDowell was instrumental in the creation of Time Machines, one of the most influential drone works of the last 20 years and would continue honing his compositional skills with Coil until the bands two most lauded albums, “Astral Disaster” and “Music to Play in the Dark” at which point he left the project and his native home to relocate to the United States.

For the last 17 years Drew McDowall has lived in New York City and found a welcoming home in the city’s experimental music community. In 2011, alongside his friend and collaborator, Tres Warren (Psychic Ills), McDowall found himself exploring his passion for meditative drone and abstract sound patterns in their project Compound Eye. He has collaborated with Croatian Amor, Varg, Puce Mary, Marshstepper and many others. Outside of his collaborative duties, McDowall formed an audience as a solo artist, playing countless performances and showcases around New York’s electronic music venues and festivals.

Drew McDowall released his debut solo album entitled “Collapse” on Dais Records in September 2015 and has subsequently toured the United States and Europe.

With Unnatural Channel, released on Dais Records in May 2017, using his signature ambient ebb and flow coupled with patterns of fibrous metallic waveforms and reverberated percussions that have been pulled and spun around the spectrum he continues to dissect subterranean themes and explore how to comprehend and subsequently engage with the contemporary world that emerges from the disintegration of various mental, physical, and emotional terrain.

Unhuman b2b Sekunde

Unhuman was founded as a noise project in 2012 in Athens with the release of his first tape, entitled Emperor Black on Species Productions and then a split tape with To The Lovers Farewell on Red Venice Records. Delving deeper into radical noise, experimental and industrial music, a whole new world of possibilities opened up to him when he moved to Berlin in 2012. After founding the Lärm-Alarm-Lärm festival, he combined the idea of underground music and more experiential events going onto organize workshops which encompassed experimental & interactive audio/visual performances in a project space called Shift which led to his current project Liber Null Berlin which unifies the freedom of arts in a conceptual event and a record label. With his DJ-project he has performed alongside renowned artists such as Ascion, D Carbone, Eschaton, James Ruskin, Luke Slater, Makaton, Substance aka Dj Pete, Tomohiko Sagae, Truss, Ugandan Methods, Violet Poison. At the moment, Unhuman tours in venues all around Europe and Asia and is a regular act in many of the major Berlin clubs. He was resident Dj in the city of Paris for two years and now days he is resident artist at Constant Value Seoul. He released on labels such as Veleno Viola, Monolith Records, Amok Tapes and Instruments Of Discipline.


Sekunde is a project, based in Berlin, that has been part of the Fleisch collective since its inception.

Playing a mix of Industrial, EBM, post-punk, and synth wave, he blends these genres together seamlessly into his own world suited for dark basements and strobe light funerals.

Alessandro Adriani

Born and raised in Roma, Italy and now living in Berlin, Alessandro Adriani is the brain behind Mannequin Records, an outlet that since 2008 has done arguably more than any other to unearth obscure synth wave and industrial music from all over the world. Aside from his work in releasing forgotten gems and up to the minute synth incantations, Alessandro Adriani has also been quietly issuing out his own music for labels like Mannequin, Pinkman and Jealous God. Previously active as Newclear Waves, he developed lately an interest for remixes/edits, including “the rarest disco fruit from the Caribbean-via-Berlin: Mannequin Records’ Alessandro Adriani rolls up a smoking edit of Lata Ramasar’s exulting/exulted proto-house bubbler The Greatest Name That Lives.”

Alessandro is the resident dj and organizer of the bi-monthly Mannequin Records Nacht at Säule/Berghain.

Nullam Rem Natam

No thing born. An emphatic idiom for nothing.

Nine Inch Nails | Pretty Hate Machine

On October 20th, 1989 Nine Inch Nails released their iconic debut LP Pretty Hate Machine. The album’s demo was a labor of love produced and recorded in between shifts while singer songwriter Trent Reznor was working nights as a custodian at the Right Track Studio in Cleveland, Ohio.

Reznor would then eventually sign to TVT records, self recording the album with the aid of legendary producers Flood, Keith LeBlanc, Adrian Sherwood, and John Fryer.

Have you seen these boys?

For the album’s tour, Reznor quickly formed a band with guitarist Richard Patrick, the brother of actor Robert Patrick, who would later go on to front Filter. During an interview with The Nerdist Podcast, Robert Patrick revealed that he was pitching the music from Pretty Hate Machine for the soundtrack for Terminator 2: Judgment Day to Director James Cameron, but was overruled by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

While touring North America in support of Pretty Hate Machine, Nine Inch Nails as an opening act for Post-Punk heroes such as Peter Murphy and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

The album has 3 hit singles:

Psyche premieres new song “Youth of Tomorrow”

It’s no surprise that the Canadian synth band, Psyche, is embedded in the very history of the 1980s dark underground scene with tracks like “Unveiling the Secret”, “The Saint Became a Lush” and the heart-wrenching cover of “Goodbye Horses”. But with their new track, “Youth of Tomorrow”, Psyche proves they are more than a band of the past.

As a song about today’s youth and their disenchantment of the world around them, “Youth of Tomorrow” provides a spark of hope for future generations while, at the same time, maintains the underlying dark cynicism Psyche is known for. Overtop sweet and catchy synthesizer melodies, Darrin Huss’ voice is just as memorable and soulful as ever.

This song finds Psyche leaving their mark on the new Cold Wave generation. utilizing sounds such as the Oberheim Drum Machine that was originally heard in 1985 on The Brain Collapses, and keeping their dark indie moods reminding their audience where they came from while showing the newbies how it’s done! 

“Youth of Tomorrow” will be available via Artoffact and Bandcamp on October 13th.
