KAADA/PATTON REVEAL THE UNSETTLING VIDEO FOR ‘IMODIUM’;
BACTERIA CULT LP OUT APRIL 1ST VIA IPECAC RECORDINGS
Norwegian composer John Kaada and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Nevermen) have revealed the video for ‘Imodium’, from the duo’s forthcoming album, Bacteria Cult (Ipecac Recordings). The alarming video was shot in Romania by Alexandru Ponoran, and after starting off innocuously, derails from the dinner table to a procession of symbolism and sensation, mirroring the pair’s deeply unusual music.
Mike Patton previously said of the pair’s reunion: “Working with John Kaada on this latest release was an honor and pure pleasure. His compositions have always resonated deeply with me and his orchestral arrangements for this project are harmonically dense and delicious! Each individual piece is so well constructed and inventively assembled that my vocal passages practically sang themselves. I’m hoping very much that we can seduce some eardrums and welcome listeners into this lush sonic ‘otherworld.’”
The eight-song, orchestral collection, which also features the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, exudes the music Ipecac has become well known for: eclectic, experimental and cinematic. Similar in feel to Fantômas’ Director’s Cut, as Kaada describes it, Bacteria Cult “dwells in the twilight zone where spooky and seductive meet.”
