“‘Massive React’ mixes a slick synth groove with processed guitars while tackling the effects that corporate greed, technology, and personal responsibility play within the world. It was great having Jim Marcus (Go Fight, Die Warzau) on board to direct the video since we have a musical history reaching back to the 90s.” John D. Norten

World on Fire is BEC’s 5th studio album and first in 6 years, coming after the release of the 2018 Trash Deity album Cross & Divide with Groovie Mann (My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult). The 11 track assault of World on Fire finds the Chicago born artist returning to his WAX TRAX! influences, juxtaposing raw EBM/Industrial elements with modern production and real world themes. The title track from the album, a video for which is forthcoming, features former LORDS OF ACID vocalist MEA FISHER and ex-KMFDM member EN ESCH. Due out 5/22. World on Fire is available to purchase via DISTORTION PRODUCTIONS Now!

“Blue Eyed Christ’s lyrics often lend themselves to various interpretations. Upon reviewing the song, I was struck by the multiple directions his words could be decoded into themes relevant throughout past, present and future. I started to researching old government PSA’s, self-promoting manufacturing films & proto-infomercials throughout history in order to locate slices of “civilized” culture which could be utilized for illustrating the various concepts suggested within the lyrics of this song. People dance around their possessions, celebrating their ability to consume while governments utilize the same raw materials to build machines of surveillance & war.

Now with the advent of cell phone cameras, social media, internet spambots, propaganda farms & the increasing ease of access to such tools (and the resulting misinformation being generated and digested on a minute-by-minute basis), society sails further and faster into this hall of mirrors – gleefully making images of our lives to convince each other that opinions are more valuable than truth, feelings more important than fact, that we’re all doing just fine/not-fine, civilization is ticking along nicely/not-nicely – reveling in shortsighted, personal agendas… while outside, the world burns. “

Blue Eyed Christ is the Electronic Industrial Rock project of established Producer/Engineer John D. Norten. John has worked with many of the biggest artists in music helping them achieve their visions (PrinceFergieLady GagaDr. Dre).

In contrast, Blue Eyed Christ is 100% John’s artistic vision in the studio. That vision is the visceral combination of heavy electronic industrial rock mixed with personal lyrics and just the right balance of hooks and noise. Blue Eyed Christ is the combination of John’s experimental Chicago Trax background mixed with the pop and polished sheen he brings to other Artists. In 1991, while still in his teens, Chicago’s John D. Norten signed his first international recording contract under the band name Blue Eyed Christ to famed Belgian EBM label KK Records. The first Album, Leaders + Followers, was released that same year. Blue Eyed Christ still enjoys a loyal following today and Leaders +Followers is considered an EBM classic.

In 1995 John recorded the second Blue Eyed Christ Album, Crash, while working at Chicago Trax Recording Studios. At the same time he assembled an intense live band that helped further create a buzz throughout the music industry.

2002 saw the release of the third Blue Eyed Christ album, American Whore, with a new Los Angeles Live band taking on the underground club circuit.

With a new studio savvy, 2014 saw the release of A Rush and a Thrill, a whirlwind ride straight into the world of Blue Eyed Christ. Eric Zimmerman (SoundgardenNine Inch NailsMinistry) directed the decadent “Freakshow” concept video short recorded on Halloween of that year.

A chance meeting at an art event in 2015 led to the formation of Trash Deity with Groovie Man (My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult). Metropolis Records caught wind and released the debut Trash Deity Album, Cross & Divide, Sept 2018.

Energized by the current chaos and state of the world, John is releasing the first Blue Eyed Christ Album in 6 years, World on Fire.

World on Fire combines the energy and political anthems on my first album mixed with the personal themes I’m also known for. It’s time to get this message out there again and that message is loud and angry. My songwriting and production has never been better”

From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for thirty years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.

ANGELSPIT’S WALL STREET MASSACRE WITH SPECIAL GUESTS CYANOTIC + MYPARASITES

Angelspit are an electro punk act hailing from Sydney, Australia, known for vicious distortion, biting lyrics and harsh drums. Angelspit have churned out eight releases over the past seven years and have shared the stage with acts such as KMFDM, Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, Sisters of Mercy and Nitzer Ebb. The band’s music and performance have been critically acclaimed worldwide.

The Angelspit lineup consists of Zoog and Destroyx, Valerie Gentile on guitar, Matt James on drums and The Liar on videography.

Angelspit have played many major European festivals (Mera Luna, Summer Darkness, Wave Gothic Treffin and more), toured North America, Europe and UK twice and Australia 3 times. They have shared the stage with KMFDM, Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, Front 242, Sisters of Mercy,Nitzer Ebb, Lords Of Acid, Architect, Legendry Pink Dots, Mortiis and many others.

Ministry, KMDFM and many other bands have requested Angelspit remixes. In viral form, they reduce bandwidth to ash with a massive amount of web content including instructional “blipvert” videos, blogs, tutorials, downloadable stencils, forums and constant online interaction with their fans.

Angelspit’s nine releases have been praised and slandered – including Best Release of 2009 from ReGen magazine, best AND worse new band simultaneously from the same magazine (Italy’s Ritual Magazine 2007 Reader’s Poll), hailed as genius and critised as an annoying fashion statement.
They have declared war on all things that hold back creativity and freedom of expression. Based in New York City and Berlin Germany, Angelspit continue to corrupt audiences with their perfectly kerned mayhem.

Angelspit is coming to the 31st ST PUB in PITTSBURGH on NOVEMBER 7 (hosted by the legendary JIM SEMONIK) as part of ANGELSPIT’S “WALL STREET MASSACRE” USA/CAN 2012 TOUR
ANGELSPIT + CYANOTIC + MYPARASITES are taking on the United States, and they’re coming at you fast!
