Sevendeaths is the solitary work of original ‘Americanmen’ member and Edinburgh-based frequent Claude Speeed collaborator, Steven Shade. His forthcoming album, Concreté Misery is a dark, fluctuating work of human and programme-automated writing where modern classical, electronic and black metal all war in tumult. This original work for LuckyMe unashamedly utilises ‘in-the-box’ VSTs, processed through virtual and physical fx chains to create a fraught, epic personal work that travels through Vangelis, Merzbow & Mogwai to Claude Speeed, Americanmen & Parc En Ciel – and comes out the other side unmarked. Sevendeaths – Conreté Misery is out now on LuckyMe.
