After the “timeless explosion” (Radio Študent) they detonated in 2011 in our Katedrala Hall, the Swiss gods of industrial are returning with their new, twelfth album and a robust veteran line-up. Ahead of their gig, one of the most esteemed bands of the Slovenian underground, Nina Bulatovix, will cut into us with post-punk sharpness.
In the 1980s, The Young Gods took advantage of the underutilised potential of samplers in a revolutionary, radical manner, establishing not just their own pioneering music expression, but thoroughly shaking up rock music as a whole. They’ve influenced David Bowie, Mike Patton, Sepultura and Devin Townsend, among others, and released albums via labels such as Ipecac, Play It Again Sam, Wax Trax! and Interscope, which attests to the scope and progressiveness of their music.
When they last visited Ljubljana, they gave us a spectacular audio-visual experience at the release of their album Everybody Knows, with RockOnNet writing: “Old wine is old wine and old posion is old poison; both become more vintage and more potent through the years.” This time around, in addition to the toxins we’re familiar with, we’ll be hit by material from the legendary band’s new record, to be released in February 2019. The twelfth album by these cult icons started taking shape during a residency at the Cully Jazz Festival, and will undoubtedly feature that recognisable hard edge that only The Young Gods possess.
“Rather good. Rather interesting. Drums, bass, vocals. And sayonara to the past.” Meet Nina Bulatovix, a trio that finds a guitar in the bass, dancing in the drums, and sharpness in words. The band formed in response to the empty promises of local politicians out of the members of groups such as Coma Stereo, Napravi mi dete, We Can’t Sleep At Night and more, and has so far published two extremely well-received albums, taking its onstage chemistry all over our land. In 2019, they’re returning to the stage after a short live hiatus. Finally.
