Cheap Satanism presents Insect Ark (us) + John 3:16 (uk)

INSECT ARK (us)
(Doom/Drone)

INSECT ARK is the new solo project from Dana Schechter, known for her work with BEE AND FLOWER (Neurot Recordings, Cheap Satanism Records). Based in Brooklyn, INSECT ARK is composed and performed as an analog-electronic hybrid: one woman, a sampler, a bass, a lapsteel and a keyboard.

Creating her personal soundtrack to the human psyche’s underbelly, Schechter’s sounds weave a brooding, textural landscape, a starless night spiked with sparkling moments of light and flash. Intimate and cold at the same time, this foray into her aggressive and experimental musical side braids a strong sense of melody into the twists and turns with delay drenched lapsteel, distorted synthesizers and bass, and sparse drum programming.

JOHN 3:16
(Psychedelic-electronic analog circuit no-wave, industrial, ambient, shoegaze, pop, trip-hop)

Philippe Gerber/JOHN 3:16 has played more than 500 shows in the UK and Europe with the London based band Heat From a DeadStar (2004 to 2009). HFADS was the first non-US act to sign a record deal with the Boston-based label Ace of Hearts Records (owned by Rick Harte, producer of Mission of Burma, Lyres, The Infliktors, etc). The trio released its first album ‘Seven Rays of The Sun’ in 2008. This album has been described as "abrasive, catchy, post-Wire post-punk" and "a Burma-esque adrenalin rush of banging drums, rumble bass and slashing guitars" (Big Take Over Magazine, USA).

JOHN 3:16 was started in 2007, as a studio-only project but after HFADS disbanded in 2010, JOHN 3:16 became the official live act of Philippe Gerber. The 5-track EP ‘Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God’ (2011) was critically acclaimed and presented the JOHN 3:16’s newly musical direction "synthesizing many different styles and genres such as those designed as psychedelic-electronic analog circuit no-wave, industrial, ambient, shoegaze, pop, trip-hop..." (Terapija Webzine, Croatia).

‘Visions of the Hereafter - Visions of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory’ is the first full length of JOHN 3:16 and was released via Alrealon Musique on October 22, 2012. The nine tracks were recorded at the Alrealon Studio/Laboratory(76). Carolyn O’Neill (Director of the Logan Square New Music Ensemble) co-wrote the track ‘Abyss of Hell/Clouds of Fire’ and William Schaff (Okkervil River, Songs: Ohia, Godspeed You! Black Emperor...) designed the original artwork.
