Austin, Texas based Industrial / Alternative Rock band Adoration Destroyed has released the Official Music Video for “In Elegant Decay” from their debut record Ritual Damage, which was released earlier this year via Cleopatra Records. All the original songs on the record were written, performed, and produced by Erik Gustafson and mixed/mastered by Daniel Stapleton at www.360mixing.com.
With one eyeliner-stained eye looking back over a black-clad shoulder, harkening to the dark electronic music of the past, yet seductively mixed with bleeding-edge production drawn from modern EDM, and other electronic genres.
This project is an outlet for the ravaged, the lost and fucked-up souls.
Raw, visceral chronicles encased in a slick dichotomy of infectious Bass Music and Dark Pop/Electro, with even darker emotional themes.
Embrace the delicious somber sonnets and electro-dirge of Adoration Destroyed… The forlorn, the obliterated…this is for You.
In short, I think we sort of have one foot in two different worlds…One that harkens back to old goth, and reminds people of that, yet with newer production and fresh and also accessible sounds, yet still dark, and aggressive at times. – Adoration Destroyed
