Perturbator is the sound that would have arisen if the pastel-colored synth wave of the 80s had been thrown straight into a dystopian chaotic future.
Perturbator is the sound that would have arisen if the pastel-colored synth wave of the 80s had been thrown straight into a dystopian chaotic future. In the deep shadows rest indescribable horrors, the adrenaline level is elevated, the atmosphere has an ominous taste.
Since the 2012 self-released EP “Night Driving Avenger” and the full-length “Terror 404”, Perturbator has moved from the small clubs to take over major festivals such as Hellfest, Download and Graspop. The masterful album “New Model” went straight into seventh on the American Billboards electronic list and in 2019 Perturbator crowned playing in front of an unimaginable 500,000 people at the Pol’and’Rock Festival. Along the way, he has also collaborated with both electronics giant Jean-Michel Jarre and the Swedish metal favorites Cult of Luna.
Musically, Perturbator moves freely between Nine Inch Nail’s suggestive mists, compatriot Kavinsky’s urban turn and Vangeli’s dramatic shimmer. And the result is devastatingly good.
When Perturbator arrives here in Bern on October 30, he will bring with him the experimental noiser rock band Health and the American industrial metal act Author & Punisher. In other words, it will be a really heavy evening.
