“Do not feed the control machine”
The Marquis gets down to basics deconstructing sound and vision with End of the Line: Corroded and Broken.
The Marquis, also known as multi-instrumentalist and composer Dillon Steele (or Tetsuo Paradis formerly of Automelodi), is exploring new territory with this endeavour. He creates a demented dystopia with his soundscapes: hardcore vocals, looping effects, shilling, guitar experiments, and industrial screeching comprise this composition.
This is a special project for The Marquis: besides the usual cassettes, there will be a limited edition of VHS available. The Marquis carefully handmade the releases from entirely recycled and found materials from previous owners or abandoned places.
Watch the trailer below:
The Marquis began his project with a self-titled cassette release in Montreal. The more EBM-fueled Sodomie et Violence EP (RND Records) followed in France. Now The Marquis is based in Berlin, out with his latest album The Suburbs Dream of Bloodshed (Aufnahme + Wiedergabe).
