Hard-hitting yet elegant, SHIV-R is the monstrously seductive project of Australian-born musicians Pete Crane and Ben Lee Bulig. The band forge a unique aural and visual aesthetic, creating a world of fear, aggression and self-expression to confront the shadows within ourselves. This new release is a full-length album at the price of an EP. Through five brand-new tracks, including collaborations with fellow harsh provocateurs SURGYN and industrial brothers-in-arms AR12, the band continue to explore the space between the explosively energetic and the emotively captivating. The EP also includes a fistful of high- powered remixes by NOISUF-X, SAM, SKYLA VERTEX, DISTORTED MEMORY and - incredible but true - SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK. Following on from "This World Erase"'s themes of rejecting and destroying the world with which we are presented, the new EP explores an existence without the gilded trappings of an apathetic society. A void of creation; a "Shadow Between Worlds".
