Preparing Singularity is the debut album by Berlin-based
EBM act Transhuman Rebirth, currently a one-man side
project of renowned German synth-punk artist
Already instantly recognisable on the European synth/wave
scene and touring circuit with his high octane agressive
minimal synth, Bloodygrave started this new project over the past few years focusing more on classic,
first-wave EBM, moulding the nine tracks on Preparing Singularity into a sound that’s recognisable to
fans of the starting foundations of the genre. While retaining a sound that’s unique and solely its own,
elements of minimal wave and synth-punk are fused in these propulsive tracks, with nods to “old idols”
such as Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, Front 242 and Absolute Body Control.
Bloodygrave started his path in music as a drummer, bassist and vocalist in “classic” German-style
punk bands, but becomes more increasingly interested in synthesisers in the years to follow, launching
his own Ben Bloodygrave solo project in 2008.
Transhuman Rebirth is subjectually futuristic to dystopian, interspersed with political statements. The
lyrics focus on topics that are current and modern, including science, technology, surveillance and
artificial intelligence — all delivered through Bloodygrave’s well-known vocal style with a sound that is
much rougher and with compositions and sound designs that are more complex than his main
Ben Bloodygrave persona.
This nine track album comes in digital, cassette and Digipak CD formats, with a forthcoming limited
“fan-based” vinyl LP version that is in the works.
