Kandekt (2018)

Winnipeg, MB

Kandekt are an abrasive industrial act inspired by the influences that informed the originators of the genre. On what is sadly their final album, History As It Is Happening, vocalist Nicholas Liang takes on his father’s experiences of oppression in Mao’s China. All the while, his cohorts use drill-like guitar, shattered percussion and overwrought synth to summon a horrific sonosphere worthy of the subject matter.
