Upcoming Releases

In progress: Debut Plague Sequence album 2nd The Crystalline Effect album



Plague Sequence present dancefloor oriented music with a futuristic prose, fusing cold synth patterns and sweeping atmospherics, drawing heavily from the psytrance and futuristic techno genres. The Australian project consists of Virulent (Pete Crane), who is known for making the music for trip hop/EBM act The Crystalline Effect, whose debut album Glass was released by European label Black Flames Records in 2005. The Crystalline Effect has played dozens of gigs all over Australia and their releases have received great reviews worldwide. Virulent is also an active remix-artist having remixed internationally renowned artists (including Implant, among others) and also DJs regularly in Sydney and Melbourne. Currently completing a debut album, Plague Sequence is a subjective view of the technofetishistic webwork of a computer-obsessed existence, an intimate portrayal of the integration of the hi-tech into human culture. Plague Sequence is part of the Crash Frequency Collective.
