Biography

Angelspit is a / / band from Sydney, Australia.

With their highly acclaimed debut album Krankhaus and their impressive visceral live performances, Angelspit have cemented themselves as being one of the most innovative new cybergoth bands. With their merciless dual vocal assault, intense electronic mayhem and murderous guitars, Destroyx and Zoog have thrilled and revolted countless audiences globally. Angelspit’s subversive visuals are equally confronting- as their unique brand of vicious fashion and hellish aesthetics influence a new wave of electro punk music, fashion and art.

Formed in 2004 by duo ZooG and DestroyX, Angelspit later expanded to include collaborations and live appearances by artists such as Miss Ballistic, Chris Kling, and George Bikos. DestroyX departed the band in 2013 and as such did not contribute to the 2014 album The Product.

In 2007 Angelspit toured East Coast USA with the Crüxshadows and relocated to Berlin Germany for 12 months where they extensively toured Europe. They have played at festivals such as Wave Gotik Treffen (Germany), Castle Party (Poland) and Summer Darkness (Netherlands).


Their initial EP (Nurse Grenade) was released for free on the official Angelspit website, it contained an inventive mix of sampling and distortion, resulting in a style uniquely Angelpit’s own, this style was refined in the independant release of their 2006 album, Krankhaus.

Hot off the success of their debut album Krankhaus, Angelspit have returned with a new barrage of ballistic electro punk in their new 11 track album Blood Death Ivory. The album will continue to blow fans away and disgust the status quo, as Angelspit experiment with sonic brutality combined with infectious and chemically sweetened melodies. Their tortured synthesizers, crushing bass and stomping beats get into your head and up to no good. Angelspit’s fierce yet seductive vocals distort beauty with chaos, doing violence to conservativism, apathy and a society fixated with consumerism. With the massive sounding Blood Death Ivory, it’s clear that Angelspit won’t be silenced.
