New Act MORLOCK on Cineploit album release in September Posted on 23 Jun 00:11 , 0 comments

Prog doom drummer du jour Andrew Prestidge branches out into the field of electronic music with his solo synthesizer project MORLOCK!

After several years spent holding down the drum stool with legendary doom metal acts Angel Witch, Electric Wizard and Warning – not to mention the prog rock bands Zoltan, The Osiris Club and Suns Of The Tundra – Andrew sat down with his keyboard collection, a 4-track recorder and a selection of sonic screwdrivers to create a new kind of music.

The space-rock jams contained on 'Ancient Paths' are influenced as much by retro synth artists Kraftwerk, Heldon, Tubeway Army and OMD as they are by the sci-fi soundtracks of John Carpenter and the folk-horror that seeps into every corner of the British Isles. Andrew's previous experience in live-soundtracking silent films (performing at Stewart Lee's ATP Festival with Suns Of The Tundra to a 1919 film detailing Shackleton's expedition to Antarctica) and reworking vintage horror scores with Zoltan guide the expansive, all-instrumental melancholy of the record. Acoustic guitars, analog synthesizers and electronic percussion coalesce into a retro-futurist soundscape for the mind's eye.

Many of the songtitles reference occult literature and cinema: Fritz Lang's Metropolis ('Rotwang's Furnace'), Phantasm ('Morningside'), H.P. Lovecraft's Colour Out Of Space ('Blasted Heath'), the comics of Jack Kirby ('Kirby Oberon'). The band name itself is a nod to H.G. Well's classic 1895 novel 'The Time Machine'.

The Wind in the Willows recast for the 22nd century? Quatermass and the Pit relocated to Summerisle? The music of Morlock bridges the past and the future, re-imagining both into a blend of electronic perfection.

First music to listen below!

Morlock - Morningside

And this is not all - we are behind a big Documentary Production which will be finished late 2018 and hopefully hit all important festivals 2019 followed by an Bluray release! Stay tuned!

Obwohl Cineploit als Plattenlabel begonnen hat sind wir seit einiger Zeit beschäftigt diverse italienische Filmperlen zu restaurieren und in aufwendigen Mediabooks zu veröffentlichen. Ihr findet all unsere früheren Veröffentlichungen in unserem Online Shop in der Filmsektion. 

Anfang 2018 haben wir die Zusammenarbeit mit unserem deutschen Partner beendet werden aber unsere Tätigkeit mit aufwendig restaurierten Filmen weiterführen und diese als Mediabook wie auch Amaray veröffentlichen.

Dies ist noch lange nicht alles - seit fast zwei Jahren produzieren wir eine aufwendige Dokumentation welche im Winter 2018 fertiggestellt werden wird und 2019 auf allen wichtigen Festivals zum Einsatz kommen soll. Zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt natürlich auch über uns veröffentlicht - folgt uns über die üblichen Kanäle!
