FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
November 8, 2021 – Dark electro-industrial act SPANKTHENUN picks up where The Bunker Tapes Vol. I and the closing track, “Dominate” left us.
Now, The Bunker Tapes Vol. II continues the journey of mid 90-influenced industrial beats and moves into a more dark electro territory, then finally to a pure EBM vision with tracks like “Industrial Beats” and “Lockdown”. Like the previous album, Vol. II includes original tracks and remixes of the fan favorites like the face-ripping “Off Beatings”, the introspective “I Self Me” and “Right Father”.
Indeed the album is more substantial than its feel of late 90s dark electro. “The Smoking Gun” is a stark reflection of the political nightmare that turned a deadly disease into a worldwide pandemic, once only thought possible in sci-fi films. “Lockdown” takes the EBM vibe down a darker path in its idea that “we are part of the broken machine.”
But the stylistic diversity of SPANKTHENUN is expressed with the fun and quirky vibe of “I Am The Fire” juxtaposed with the aforementioned tracks that maintain a more conceptual seriousness.
The physical CD carries an additional track from The Bunker Tapes Vol I – “Fight and Breed” with a special dual remix from Upon Eventual Collapse and Leather Strip, bringing an unexpected new vibe to the track… only on the CD.
