With two strong and highly praised albums - Underground and Nuclear - French duo Krystal System found their place in the spotlight on the indie rock scene across Europe and also overseas from Japan to the USA. With Rage, they return and hit hard again, setting the production bar even higher!
This is a radical chef d'oeuvre full to the brim with dynamics, grooves, sound experiments, anger and melodies which breathes and transpires a forceful creativity and astounding songwriting maturity that will undoubtedly receive a resonating echo from music journalists and DJ's worldwide and will certainly be a contender for the best album made in France in 2013!
Rage is the uncompromising soundtrack of urban warriors on a holy quest for their roots, fighting for the truth in a suffocating post-modern world contaminated by mental disease. Loud and rough indie rock guitars filtered through artisan fx and mutated into a wall of noise combined with straight ripping electronic bass lines and radical synth arrangements. Electric versus electronic. Rage is dominated by seducing contrasting harsh male and filtered female vocals. A unique blend of styles confirming that Krystal System creates their unique and characteristic sound design.
On this 3rd album, Paris-based duo Krystal System shout their Rage loud and proud, and focus their fight on the self-destructive human race suffering from mental weakness and living an artificial life instead of fighting their inner war… This is an anti-fake propaganda campaign! Consume at full blast without moderation – your neighbors will love it!
Cherry on the cake, the visual aesthetic signed by French designer Valdor turns the physical release of Rage into a true collector item! Do not miss the skull design of the deluxe double-disc carton box edition with 10 exclusive tracks: bonus songs, full remakes of the songs by Krystal System themselves with different instruments, different lyrics, etc.
And the Rage doesn't stop there because Kystal System bring their anto-fake propoganda campaign to Alt-Fest!
