The TERMINATOUR is rolling across North America with Cyanotic and The Rabid Whole and landed in Ypsilanti with Ri0t_viRus and Toxic-Anarchy.
Cyanotic is a Chicago-based industrial rock collective formed in 2002. They are known for their unique “angry robot” music, blending metal, electro, drum, and bass to create an aggressive electronic rock sound you don’t hear anywhere else.
They have played live with bands like Skinny Puppy, Andrew W.K., Front Line Assembly, Chemlab, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Meat Beat Manifesto, 16 Volt, Stromkern, Acumen Nation, DJ? Acucrack, and many more. They have also done remixes and production work for many artists, including Chemlab, Front Line Assembly, 16 Volt, Acumen Nation, and Pigface.
While their set started off slow due technical difficulties, they joked and entertained the crowd as they got everything fixed. Once resolved, their set was strong and played with the energy you would expect for a large arena. Given this was a small audience in a small venue, everyone in attendance got their money’s worth.
Cyanotic is touring in support of their latest album, Worst Case Scenario, Vol.1.
The Rabid Whole, coming out of Toronto, Canada, rocks with a mixture of rock, industrial, electronica, and alternative music.
The Rabid Whole have toured across the USA and Canada several times, played SXSW, NXNE, CMW, Indieweek, and Coldwaves festivals, as well as playing with Hinder, The Birthday Massacre, Econoline Crush, Apoptygma Berzerk and Bile.
From the moment they started, the band were giving it their all. Their heavy rock sound mixed perfectly with keyboard and an electro feel. The Rabid Whole put on an incredible show, satisfying their many eager fans in attendance. It was obvious many in the audience were seeing them for the first time, and left wanting more.
Their latest album, Problems, was released on September 23.
Ri0t_viRus is a hardcore punk/industrial project founded by Opi Synthetique (who is Vox/programming in the band). Accompanied by a guitarist, their music is hard hitting techno with powerful vocals. They made for an great opening act and firing up the audience for those to follow. They recently released a free to download 2 Track EP featuring 2 songs that won’t be on upcoming albums.
Toxic-Anarchy is a horror industrial/psychological electro music project from Tipton, MI. They specialize in horror and gore in their show, starting the night off with a bang. Their latest EP, The Void, was released in March and can be found on their bandcamp website.
