The Brvtalist is pleased to present the new record from Berlin's Operant. The project of Luna Violenta (Instruments of Discipline) and August Skipper (Ascetic), Operant exists in a unique realm, passing between power electronics, industrial, techno and dark ambient. We featured the duo's debut cassette, ZK-II, back in September and we are thrilled to see a vinyl release with 5 brand new tracks.
Co-produced by Blush Response and mastered by Eric Von Waterghem, Zero Knowledge explores the idea that wounds are gateways to parallel dimensions and our bodies are just beginning of something else? Opening with the dark ambient composition, "Prison 01", and moving into the noisy post-industrial gem, "Limbs", the record quickly pulls you from the grips of reality and leaves you in an unknown sonic atmosphere. The tension of "Deliverance" gives way to a pulsating end, which bridges the gap to the coming assault. "Insular" punishes with a forceful industrial techno sound and the record closes with the experimental and aptly titled, "The Alpha is Destroyed". To help launch the release, we also have the mind bending video for "Deliverance".
