Sex & Blood
EARTHGOAT's debut album 'Sex and Blood' has cemented the band as a force to be reckoned with. Boasting audio & visual artistry that continues to stimulate the alternative music scene. The debut features the brooding drone of '1763 ', Dark dance of 'Astrolabe' and a reworking of David Bowie's 'Scary Monsters'. Corman says 'Initially I was working on some ambient music, a soundtrack. I began inserting some backbeats and it escalated from there. I guess people may 'Sex and Blood' as industrial sounding, and that's fine. I see colors, pulses, frequencies more than I do much else. 'My whole take on this record has been minimalism. I see the bombardment of the media & the pace at which some people spin as too much, too fast. I've peeled back everything. The whole premise of slowing things down was a natural response for me, & that's the power of this record. Corman Featured on Australia's prestigious 'AMP Awards' The band has been honored with 'Song of the Week', with the heavy dance single 'Astrolabe'.Sex and Blood fuses industrial soundscapes with a pure emotional edge, with elements reminiscent of NIN, Massive Attack, and the gothic Skinny Puppy. 'We're not listening to what is happening in mainstream or what is the accepted medium; that would detract from the originality of this band. This is a piece of art,' says frontman Kobe Corman. Kobe began writing the album originally from ambient musical beginnings, solid backbeats then emerged, and then came distorted surreal riffs to bring EARTHGOAT into being. 'A lot of the content of the record has been a honing in on the dark side of the human psyche, and I've loved doing it! The best thing that you can do as an artist is be free & in control. Music and Art has to be a labor of love, original & on the edge, otherwise I become bored very quick' says Corman.
