Biography

Basilica refers to two bands:

1. Basilica is Paul Kirkpatrick, also of UK grindcore act phantom limb management, and Adelle Kirk, who was formerly vocalist with UK act Kirk and Kushty.

Their first release, ‘Sins of the Flesh’, comprised electronica, dark guitars and lush vocals in songs that are thematically linked by a fascination for death and murder. The lyrics mine the same uneasy territory as TWIN PEAKS, BLUE VELVET, and similar films, with twelve songs exploring the disturbed thinking of serial killers and their victims, with songs that incorporate elements of electronica, melodic rock, goth, and (less frequently) metal. The feel is somewhere between Bloodrock’s infamous second album (the one with the seventies cult classic about an accident victim’s terminal ambulance ride) and the Golden Palominos death-rock classic DEAD INSIDE, although musically and lyrically it’s far closer to the latter. Strange, unsettling stuff…probably not heavy or straightforward for metalheads, but perfect for goth listeners in search of the latest creepfest.

Paul Kirkpatrick is also the chief contributor in dirty electronica act Glitch Code which also features Neon Zoo vocalist Rick Alexander.

Basilica are currently working on the new album “13th Station” and preparing to play some live dates later in the year to preview the new tracks. The album is due to be released early in 2007 and more dates around the UK and Europe are now being planned.
