IVARDENSPHERE (Metropolis Records)
Take tribal drums, mix with pounding analogue synths and a killer club sound and what do you get? Welcome to iVardensphere. The new album, APOK, finds iVardensphere exploring different aspects of their sound, from dance floor stomping powernoise to more exotic flavors of tribal drumming blended with elements of trip-hop and a club-pleasing analog synth bumping EBM sound. The band's continuing growth and solid sounds caught the interest of industrial/electro powerhouse label Metropolis Records, who have now welcomed iVardensphere into the fold to help foster further expansion. iVardensphere's live set is a live tribal drum meets industrial onslaught.
