EXTREME CYBER DADAISM
The idea to create 3 projects to express my space metal ideas was formed back in 2003-2004. Dol Kruug were born after composing the song “Eat Me” in 2003. It was then instantly clear to me that I would need a third music vessel to express my bleakest and weirdest feelings.
The team in Dol Kruug is just me handling all the instruments and programming and my good friend Jorgen doing all sorts of inhuman growls, screams, squeals and other lovely sound effects.
My inspiration in Dol Kruug derives from my love of self-sarcasm and the absurd anti-art movement Dadaism and also from important issues of our corrupted human activities.
We have just released the debut Dol Kruug CD “Eat Me” and if Jorgen hasn’t destroyed his throat by then, I have lots of ideas for more brutal electronica in the future.
Released on the 15th of May 2014, “Eat Me” is the debut Dol Kruug CD. Together with the Dadaist philosophy of honoring the absurd and rejecting reality, “Eat Me” deals mainly with my criticism against factory farming and animal cruelty.
In addition “Eat Me” portrays my disgust towards the social, ecological and political injustice happening in my country and in our planet right now.
My biggest challenge in this album was my decision to produce 10 video clips, one for each song of the CD. It took me tons of time and resources to accomplish such a feat, almost as much time as producing the music itself.
The future will tell if it was a clever idea, for now I am very happy with the result and I’d do it again with the same detailed masochism if I could turn back time.
