Velvet Acid Christ Future Tour Dates and news *Updated*

September 18th, 2014 by Hexfix93

eventpiclive

From this point out, The “After the end of the world tour” Is over. Shows from this point forward are to support the new VAC LP Subconscious Landscapes. We will be playing 4 or 5 tracks from the new LP on tour. This tour is strange in that we will only play one or two shows a month and they will be fly in shows. Most of the shows will feature The Siren Project as the opening band. Good news is that this show is not like the show we put on on our last tour. This time we have Live electronic drums on stage. Female vocals so we can perform “slut” “Dilaudid” And 3 new songs off Subconscious Landscapes. The new Set has some really upbeat club hits as well. The hand. Apflux, Wumpscut covers that I am doing because rudy will never play live and i want the world to hear live Wumpscut but only 2 per show. We will only play Friday, Saturday, and holiday 3 day weekends. No week day gigs.

Later in 2015, spring, A remix CD with mixes from Wumpscut, Assemblage 23, Black Lung, Decoded Feedback, Vile Augury, Covenant, Dead When I found her, Dead Hand project, I hope Suicide Commando as well still working on that. Plus a few Unreleased tracks. A few Covers and remakes will be out.

Shows booked and Going to happen for sure:

Velvet Acid Christ: 2014 Live Shows!

April 12th, 2014 by Hexfix93

generictourposter4

Velvet Acid Christ is proud to announce that in Australia BLACKLUNG will be on the tour. Black Lung has a new album (The Great Golden Goal) coming out on Ant-Zen June 13th. Velvet Acid Christ has a new LP coming out October 28th. I cannot stress enough what an honor it is to be touring with David Thrussell of Snog and Blacklung. A dream come true. My vegan brother. I cannot thank Joseph Chillari my mafia contact in Australia enough, who also believes in us enough to bring us down under.

New Zealand is also on my bucket list. Now I get to go down and fuck some sheep too!!! Frank Pink and Andrew Lyon also believe in us. So glad that frank is play keys for me down under!

We are still hammering out all the details in the European mini tour. Everything looks very promising though and I am so happy to work with Sebastian @ Bunker in Dresden, the person who invested first and put faith in us. My buddie Wojciech Król in Poland Who I will be touring with who got us the GIG in Poland. Mirko Hentrich in Oberhausen who also believes in us and has really helped us. Kees de Brouwer In Holland is hammering out a show for us and doing a great job as well. Not to mention one of my biggest DIE HARD fans who wore the VAC shirt on the german who wants to be a millionaire. He is setting up our gig in Lüneburg, just outside of Hamburg in Northern Germany.

One good thing as well, I will be remixing a couple of older WUMPSCUT songs. And LIVE I WILL PLAY THEM. I hope to get this done before australia, but for sure before europe. Since Rudy will never tour, I want to try and play a few tracks for people because in my opinion he is the best ever and its sad he never once played a show.

I feel like this is another great Live show year for VAC, I will deliver the finished new VAC LP july 11. There will be a pledge music campaign, and you will be able to buy Shirts, Vinyl, posters, odd things, shout outs in the liner notes, phone calls, my kronos, my 6 string acoustic used on TAOBA, my Slim Phatty. Mugs, Patches. We are going all out, since we did not have shit for merch over the last 20 years, we are going ape shit this time, and the good thing is the ART for the new LP IS AMAZING!!!!

Buy the new Wumpscut LP, Its amazing!!

Hexfix93

PS: I bought the Roland Aira TR-8 and TB-3. Both are fucking amazing. Only downside I have found in the TR-8 is the lack of pattern memory is rather disturbing. And no way to backup or transfer your seqs to the cpu. STUPID ROLAND STUPID. TB-3 is so damn close and beyond what a real tb303 can do. Its not analog, but fuck these two plus my nord 4 are the best digital fucking noise makers I have ever heard. There is so much cool new gear out in the synth world and I am so happy to be fucking around with it..

Wumpscut: Super Girl: Velvet Acid Christ NET ONLY RELEASE.

April 11th, 2014 by Hexfix93

Net Release only. Play it every where!!! Download it!

I did another remix and it is on the box set double cd. The other mix is weird and not as good in my opinion. This one is way more club friendly. Rudy picked the other one because it was strange. I used the old COTD drums on the other version, here I used cubase 5 drums, and newer drums. Production sounds much better here. Still both remixes are done in cubase 5, and cubase is meh. I just dont like it that much anymore. I prefer how renoise sounds. Still this version turned out good I think. I used my moog slim phatty to add a warm bass underneath but faint. I programmed lots of industrial glitchy shit, added sounds fx, and re programmed all the drums. Did a couple track edits. Mixed it much different than the original.

The original is more funky industrial mechanical, this one if more dance beat friendly. I wish he had picked this one over the other mix I did, he did not, I asked him if I could release this one free on my sites, he told me to GO FOR IT. So I did.

I must say the new wumpscut is amazing, and it is more like his old stuff that i love. So catchy and i will review it soon.

Remembering Maldire.

April 3rd, 2014 by Hexfix93

The lp that spawned a tour. And LP that went back to its aggro electronic roots to win back fans who fled after the Neo folk sounding Art of Breaking Apart LP. The Hexfix93 was Attacked by a dog making this LP. The First Solo VAC LP with just Disease Factory AKA Hexfix93 Doing absolutely everything. Most past VAC release saw Hexfix93 doing 80%.

Bend the sky: The A side of the whole LP. Not sure how much club play it got. This is the poppiest track on the lp. I was trying to make a horror movie anthem and it turned into this disco depeche mode violator inspired drum work that pushed the song towards the dance floor. The vocals and melody were very inspired by the tear garden and the pink dots. I did this song right after the Cover of EVEN NOW WE DID.

Maldire: The title track. A throw back to calling of the dead. This time inspired by the vengeance of the fallen souls who were burnt out by the old christian cult. Vocals were inspired by Wumpscut and turned up way louder than most VAC tracks in all of history. Dustin Ferguson stepped in and helped make commercials and videos for this project. Maldire being the first. In the dario argento B horror film style.

—————————————————————————–

Evoked: Yes there is a theme to this LP. Witchkraft and the occult. Evoked fused Hip Hop and horror movie sound track melodies and industrial vocals. Hey Dr Dre meet SATAN. YAY. This whole LP is a summons for justice. A curse against all abrahamic religions for all the people they have murdered in the name of their gods. This song in particular was aimed at the owner of the dog who attacked me when I was walking my dog on a leash in the park by my house. Their dog was unleashed and I had to pick up my dog and defend myself and my dog from this dog. It sucked.

—————————————————————————–

Mysteric: The unknown is the law. The law of all. The mystery of what comes next many lie about it, pretend they know it all, no one does. The great beyond, the great unknown is the law. The return of the Access Virus to the VAC sound as well. Love it.

—————————————————————————–

Ominous Rattle: I wrote these lyrics after watching fox news. Very influenced by old FLA and Aphex Twin.

—————————————————————————–

EVEN NOW: I did this for the Maldire single that never happened because we ran out of time. I wanted this to be on Maldire, but putting covers on LPS is never a good idea. So we released this on the dependence comp and that is a super rare collectors item now. Still this came from the MALDIRE SESSIONS.

Maldire in my opinion is a very good aggro industrial LP that fuses strange music types into the genre. I feel like we did not market it correctly. We put a lot of effort into this release to only have it be forgotten 2 weeks after. We made videos and tried to make it very relevant on youtube. Still hope we can squeeze more life out of this LP. It is one of my favorites in the VAC catalog. This LP goes back to what made VAC big in the club scene years ago. Maldire(french: To Curse). And yes it is a curse to the evil of the past.

PS: Maldire was supposed to be a double LP. First half would be Aggro and evil. 2nd cd would be Surreal, Atmospheric, trip hop, club hit, slower pretty dark and melodic stuff. This stuff will be released soon working title is Mauvais. Not sure what we will call it when we release it. Still working on the vocals. Mauvais will come out in October with a massive merch pledgemusic campaign for it very soon.

PLEASE !!!! BUY MALDIRE: CLICK LINKS BELOW:

Amazon MP3.. Amazon CD.
Itunes. Metropolis CD.
Metropolis Digital.

Please buy this. It really helps us make the live shows better, it helps pay the bills and for the gear and software used to make this LP. I really work hard on this stuff and spend lots and lots of hours on it. It is a full time job now with all the touring.

Synth update. march 2014

March 28th, 2014 by Hexfix93

Yes there are a lot of new synths out there. From the boomstar series, to the new roland Aria series to the korg Volca, and arturia microbrute.

Ok I know they all seem to be wanting to bring about a Analog old school revolution. I my opinion, they are failing, all of them. And where to start. Roland.

img_detail007-640x426

Roland Aria. Wow I was expecting so much, with Korg doing the analog thing, you would think that Roland would of counter punched. Nope instead they keep doing what they have been doing. They repaint what they have already done. VA Tb 303, they did that already. The System 1 is like the gia but stripped down with less memory. Limited memory is a bad thing, nord 4 and virus have lots of memory for lots of sounds, this is a good thing. We live in 2014 and ram and rom is super cheap. WTF are they thinking? I was excited about the Aria but really let down now after seeing it in action. The only one I am even remotely interested in is the VT-3 vocal processor. If the tr-8 can load samples in, or if they expand it some how i might be interested, but i have killer 808 and 909 samples so no thanks. If they system one can nail the tone of the sh2 that they plan on releasing WOW then i might have to get it.

korg_volca

Korg, While I do like the ms20 mini, and volca stuff, it lacks the analog magic that vintage gear has. It sounds good, and better than software, but still lacks the warmth and fatness and vibrance of the old gear. After owning the volca bass, i like it, but I don’t love it. Filter is kinda meh, osc is kinda meh. The ms20 is pretty good, but honestly, I am more into presets these days, i like tweaking presets. I like scanning memory in my synths when playing back a riff to find the right sound.

Arturia Microbrute, for the money this is the best way to get that amazing filter. Worth every penny. Sure its scaled down but the patch mod matrix is killer.

resize

The Nord Lead 4 is pretty cool, and after spending a lot of time with it now I can say I love it for everything. I like it more than the virus. I love the keyboard and pitch bend. The nord 4 is like a nord 2x with more bass, better filters.. I think its a must have for nord lovers.. The roland filters in this are amazing. The moog filter in this sounds better than the one in the Virus as well.

The new moog Sub 37 is what I really want more than anything. That filter is so good, the sub phatty is so amazing. Its a fat bright moog and the opposite of the voyager. It can sound more like the original model D. Also the sub 37 is like dual note cool. This will have more memory too and that is what I really want.

virussnow

As far as gear I need for my upcoming tours, we must travel light so Right now I am shooting out Roland XV5050, Access Virus Snow, and a Waldorf Blofeld. Trying to re create basses, leads, strings, sound fx. So far I am leaning toward the Snow and Xv 5050, I managed to get really nice pad and strings out of the snow and was still able to get good leads and bass. xv 5050 will be for choir patches and acoustic guitar sounds. These are super portable and great for our FLY IN gigs. Since I am no longer touring by car, van, or bus.

Flashback #7: Hypostasis.

March 15th, 2014 by Hexfix93

d3

Yes Hypostasis. A guy who helped out VAC when it fell apart and needed cash to stay afloat during the Fate, Pest, Neural, COTD and FWK days. My best friend for years and years. He was also a member of Toxic coma and wrote many great songs in the project over the years. This was the guy that I did a lot of mind exploration with many things. I remember reading Karl Marx with him coming down. I remember tripping my ass off watching Atari ST demos with him. I remember walking around my town with him while tripping. Concerts. Watching many hard core Asian Kung-fu movies. Becoming vegan with him. We Played Doom and Quake on mind altering substances.


^^^^^^
Above the Alabama Dirt Whistle Video, he painstakingly took images of us and used KAI’s Power goo to morph our faces into super silly obnoxious forms that are frightening and hilarious to look at. Dan Did a lot for Toxic Coma. He is sorely missed. I hope to work with him some day again in the future some how.

This man also toured Germany with me long ago. Played @ Zillo and Doomsday in VAC. My favorite song he ever did was Satan Raving. I really liked Womanizer as well. Hypostasis started out with me in the Atari Hacking crew The Travesty of Idiots. He did artwork for us. It was his Mega 2 Atari ST that we wrote many of the between the eyes VAC era material with. He was one of the core members of Toxic Coma and its just not the same without him. He also stuck with me during many trying times and really helped me out in so many ways. I still feel like I owe him to this day. He is also the guy who got me into a lot of cool GOA trance back in the day. We both got really hard core about that.

08090035

A very talented person. A very great friend. He is missed in the VAC and Toxic Coma Camps. I would resurrect Toxic Coma if Hypostasis some how came back into the fold.

^^^ Check out Satan Raving, Hypostasis wrote the whole thing for the devil.

VAC NEWS MARCH 2nd 2014

March 2nd, 2014 by Hexfix93

vacnews

2013 was amazing. We played in front of over 13000 + people on all the legs of the tour. I feel like this was only the beginning and not the end like I thought maybe it would be. Maldire pushed me back into the underground and hard core circles who loved calling of the dead. I got a lot of cool videos made by Dustin Ferguson, and soundmirror66. All the promoters I dealt with were great. I did a lot of remixes, Wumpscut, Twilight Garden, Asylum Black, and now Tom Shear’s a23 side project Surveillance. I got to be a massive gear whore too.

2014 looks to continue where 2013 left off. We are playing in Europe in late summer. We are playing in New Zealand and Australia in the summer. We are playing soon in Vancouver. After Vancouver I will take a break from shows and finish the new VAC LP that is a tad more mainstream sounding. Psychedelic goth Trip Hop. Its not like Maldire. It is more like if you take the songs SLUT and Dilaudid, Ghost in the circuit and made a whole LP like that. We worked with Sabine Snaps so far, and now we will try and work with Mari Kattman on a track or two. I hope to have this lp out this fall.

We will be playing new material from it this summer and beyond. We are also hoping to play Philly, LA, Atlanta, Minnesota, Toronto by the end of this year But these will be fall and winter shows. I must focus on finishing the new VAC.

The new live gear setup is nice, Virus Snow, Roland SPD-SX, and roland xv5050, plus a laptop with RME babyface converters. We will have some live drumming. Trying out the boss ME 50 as well. This is our super portable rig for fly in dates, we will have to rent controller keyboards. We also bought great DIs too. The Virus Snow, wow I actually was able to program some great VAC sounding pads and strings out of it. Still I think the nord 4 does it better :( Yes the nord 4 has grown on me so hard core. We cannot bring that one on tour tho, its too big.

We are also working on a massive merch campaign for the new LP. We are going to market the new VAC harder than we did Maldire.

Hexfix93

PS: Go check out Tom Shear’s New Assemblage 23 Side Project:
http://surveillance23.bandcamp.com/album/oceania

It kicks ass.. VAC Remixed the song HUSK should come out in the coming months.

PSSSSSS: I am looking for new Art for the new VAC and i want it to look like this:


1538866_350409528435054_455601380_n

Please point me to an artist who can do stuff like this… Running out of time now..
