From Liber Null:
Rejecting the music industry’s standards within a market that is less and less focused on quality and innovation, FILTH attempts to take a step backwards from the marketing dynamics and trends, going forward towards a precious, unique and incomparable shape that finds its own defined dimension in a truly raw and direct ritual – far away from any aesthetic convenience.
This time the event will take place in the special venue of Agora MOVE, a Berlin-based experimental center for contemporary practices, devoted to reflect on alternative models for cultural, social and economical production. This art-space provides the right environment to showcase the strong and widely developed artistic side of FILTH. Agora Rollberg offers the chance to develop a diverse program in the fields of arts by setting ideal conditions to showcase the aesthetics of the project.
Special guests of this edition, the black demons of electro-satanic post-industrial, Teatro Satanico, will visit Berlin after four years to perform live, featuring Devis Granziera (Teatro Satanico founder), Kalamun and M. Martinuz. Teatro Satanico started producing a bunch of synth-noise tracks back in 1993 and still continue to work on laptop-punk & synth-industrial post-pop tunes… Various fasma of artists appear on Teatro Satanico’s releases, such as Alberto Maria Kundalini, Tairy Ceron (also in Ait!), Sissy Biasin, Clau D.E.D.I. (ex-Ain Soph), Spectrae (Ain Soph). They have been releasing in many underground labels such as Old Europa Cafe, Ars Benevola Mater, Slaughter Productions, Toxic Industries.
With great excitement we proudly announce the worldwide debut performance of Aktion Mutante.
