Borne out of metal and bred for the purpose of learning, The Alien (ex-Blackrat) conceived
of KONTACT with then-bandmate Sven Nilson (Antichrist [Sweden], ex-Mystik). A surrogate
cult of memberz was necessitated by the great dying of 2020AD, during which The Alien
was imprisoned in its home continent of 'Canada,' where the group yet persistz. Joined by
Matt B1257+12Z (Traveler) and Morh Morf Xela (Hrom) on guitarz, as well as a yet-unidentified
force 'Unknown' (Chieftain) on drumz, KONTACT began broadcasting obscure and ancient
signalz throughout the underground, influenced by the mythic teachingz of Manilla Road,
Accept, Master’s Hammer, and otherz.
Now finally ready for transmission, Full Contact is KONTACT’s primum opus, a compendium
of stellar hymnz meant to hasten the arrival of the world beyond. Bent backwardz yet
strangely (or eerily) approachable, Full Contact inhabits a neon-hazed utopia/dystopia
where sleaze metal fuses DNA with tech-thrash – where busyness and commerce collide in
resplendent sci-fi dayglo. 'Weird' and 'wild' are merely human wordz to describe
KONTACT’s highly idiosyncratic approach, but to them, such loaded terms exist in starplanes
far, far from their orbit. Rather, the eight clusters of crushing & collapsing tonez and
robot/reptilian vocalz – in other words, eight 'songs' – flow with a finesse that seems
second nature; hookz are thus immediate, but not always easy. KONTACT make this metal
for themselvez, and you listen. You might then take on a transformation: an astral vampire,
an emperor of dreams, a bloodchild, a watcher at the edge of time, or simply one into heavy
leather. All is possible here, as infinite as the stained-glass synthz percolating across the
album. Either way, you WILL feel the force of Full Contact head on…or head off!
