Personifying the sound of the iPod generation, he creates a hybrid fusion of digital and organic elements: intricately designed soundscapes constructed from Dubstep, Drum & Bass and Electro, woven together with aggressive Rock/Metal and Orchestral elements. Celldweller ignores genre boundaries and creates a pioneering vision of the future of electronic music.
Celldweller has just announced his new artist album, “End of an Empire” along with a :30 trailer featuring a vocal teaser of the title track. Klayton (Celldweller) has set a September 16, 2014 release date for ‘Chapter 01: Time’ featuring 5 new original tracks along with remixes from Breathe Carolina, Comaduster, KJ Sawka and OCTiV. You can pre-order the album now from FiXT & iTunes.
Featuring monolithic vocal tracks of epic scope, this release highlights Klayton’s unique fusion of infectious electronic music with aggressive rock & roll the way only Celldweller can – by blurring the lines between organic and synthetic. The title track “End of an Empire” takes listeners on a 7.5 minute dichotic journey of metal-infused drum & bass blasts, and a contrasting mix of lush vocal hooks and aggressive screams. “Lost in Time” clocks in with another 7 minutes of vocoded vocals, driving guitar riffs and pulsing ethereal synths, concluding with the fading lyric “this feeling will never die.”
The teaser sound just exciting enough to make us anxious to listen to the whole thing!
Klayton then serves up “Factions,” 3 sound-design oriented pieces re-imagined from the title tracks which transport listeners to the world of ‘Atiria’ and beyond. Finally, select tracks have been remixed by a group of titans suitable only for this release, including platinum selling band Breathe Carolina, along with world-renowned producer/ drummer/artist KJ Sawka (Pendulum/Destroid), mastermind glitch/ drum & bass producer Comaduster and FiXT’s own bass-metal monster OCTiV.
