Progressive Dark Electro – Take a quick breath because with Perturbator, your breath will come to a standstill. James Kent, frontman of this dark electro band, loves the dark side of things. It doesn’t need drums, guitars or bass for that. Perturbator simply need a bit of electric power and a few synthesizers to conjure disturbing images within us. He once played the guitar for a bunch of black metal bands, so the human abyss is second nature to him. With hammering beats and hard breaks, he explores the borders of dark techno on his 2017 album “New Model”. He always manages to create a certain sinister atmosphere, as if something bad was looming – until a surprising change in tempo brings us relief. For a little while at least.
