Death in Vegas returns with 'Transmission', the sixth release from the project begun by Richard Fearless nearly two decades ago. This album forges new miles on the path Fearless carved with ‘Satan’s Circus’ and ‘Trans-Love Energies’, and is born of his desire for an ever more raw, refined sound.
United over a love of Throbbing Gristle and Chris and Cosey, Fearless partners with artist and writer Sasha Grey, whose lyrics resonate across the soundscape of visceral techno and unsettling, discordant drones, weaving into a state of dreamlike euphoria. Field recordings of the constant drone of air traffic and incessant noise from the steel factory opposite Fearless’ Metal Box studio, as well as the Ballardian landscape in which it’s set, all exert their pull on the record, searching for light in the dark.
"Bold and uncompromising, 'Transmission' is Death in Vegas' most coherent and compelling record yet." Q Magazine, 4 *
