Blacklight Magick, Necrotek's second full-length album on Vendetta Music, is an homage to the psychedelic electro-industrial sound of the 80s and 90s. It presents dark industrial electronics with gothic atmospheres and themes of disillusion, heartbreak, drugs, magick and horror. While staying true to his old-school influences, Necrotek has developed a singular and unique sound, setting him apart from the usual "industrial" fare of the current scene; the music is menacing and hypnotic, energetic and evocative, with lyrics that explore a philosophical questioning of existential experience.
An undeniably dark and spooky record, Blacklight Magick is a deeply personal journal of decadence, broken relationships and haunting emotions, full of sublime intensity and a sense of ironic fatalism. It contains a rare live improv track from a warehouse performance in 2001, as well as the very first Necrotek track from 2000. It also contains several exceptional, high-quality remixes from artists such as Portion Control, Trimetrick, Terminal State, The Peoples Republic of Europe, Kontrolled Demolition, and others. There is a download code in each cd to unlock five additional tracks from the Vendetta Music website, including a second bonus remix by Portion Control.
