Many people claim that the Dark Independent scene is dying. They post the informations about the low CD sales and the decrasing number of active artists. But when you take a closer look, you may easily observe, that the whole scene is alive and kicking. You may not find the CDs of dark independent artists in the catalogues of major record companies, you may not even be able to find them on the shelf of your local record store, but when you just search the internet you will see that this virtual universe became a platform of communication between definitely non-virtual artists, and their non virtual fans. The new acts – especially those which create dark electronic music – are appearing constantly, and many of them delivers great albums, which not only follow the Suicide Commando or Hocico’s footsteps but also reach for the new musical concepts. Such is the case of the the Viscera Drip from New Mexico, USA, which recently published its debut album entitled “Abbatoir” via Hungarian label Advoxya Records (which is already home for many interesting dark electro acts). Justin Thiele, who is the man behind the Viscera Drip answered a few questions concerning its debut album – which in my humble opinion is a great effort, and should be checked out by all of the dark electro maniacs out there.
Adalbert: Hi Justin, I’m glad that you wanted to answer a few questions for our internet site. This year is an important year for your electronic project, Viscera Drip – because after more than ten years of existence (I found an information that you’re active since 2002) your debut album was published via Advoxya Records. The dust has setlled and the few months has passed – how do you feel now about this release?
Justin Thiele: Hello, thank you for your interest! It has been a while that I have been creating music and I am happy to finally release on such a wonderful label. I am very happy with how “Abattoir turned out, and very grateful to those who were involved and helped get it finished and out there for all to hear.
Adalbert: Any opinions from the listeners or press reviews?
Justin: I have had great response from fans and friends. Everyone seems to really enjoy the songs, or they are just being nice! I also recently got a pretty decent review on Side-Line. I seem to be getting good airplay from radio shows such as Cyberage Radio, and DJ sets including Serge Negative.
