Who the feck are METALTECH? Well....fuzing electronic beats, coursing synthesizers, chugging guitars, pounding basslines and vocals with tongues firmly in cheeks, METALTECH have stunned and entertained audiences throughout the UK over the past 3 years. Having played the Rockness, Wickerman and Belladrum festivals in Scotland, Club Antichrist (one of London's largest fetish clubs!), supported Alec Empire and Psydoll, appearing in a nationwide TV advertising campaign, been voted second best metal act in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards and having packed out countless live venues including the famous King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, they have brought the theatre back into live music. Imagine if Gene Simmons from KISS had an illegitimate child with Keith Flint from the Prodigy who had then been put up for adoption and raised by Trent Reznor and David Bowie!
Erik Tricity (vocals, rhythm guitar, programming) donned in KISS-esqe greasepaint, has merged all the best hypnotic aspects of dance music with all the crunch and power of some (if not all!) of the best rock and metal acts of our time. Add to that the neon orange imagary, confetti cannons, sex dolls and glow sticks of possibly the most engaging live show to hail from Scotland, METALTECH have secured a fan base from 14 to 60 year olds.
Lord Thrapston Flagellator (bass) provides a cool mix of slap/funk bass guitar with simple throbbing basslines to add oomph to the searing synth lines peppering the music.
The Insidious Doktor Mayhem (lead guitar) compliments the sonic barrage with all the rock pomposity and fret noodling of all the greatest lead guitarists. Having released two EPs (Alkomatik and Sex On The Dancefloor) via Alex Tronic Records gaining rave reviews, METALTECH's first full length album (Burn Your Planet) is set to secure further tours and fill the dancefloors of Techno clubs and Rock clubs alike. So, get the drinks in, forget the daily grind and prepare for some real entertainment. For that, dear reader, is what music is all about!
