Drum Ecstasy Short Info

“Their performance is passionate and filled with pure, raw emotions, and tremendous energy, connecting directly to our instincts and sense of rhythm, making it dance and pulsate as it gets filled with all that energy. And I think that their music increases libido,” Euroradio.fm’ observer wrote.

Drum Ecstasy was created on the wave of rave in 1992 and has grown out from art-group of avant-garde artists, photographers and musicians.

“This is the music of Drum Ecstasy, three drummers and a bass player in an onslaught of brutal syncopation that they call ‘white voodoo disco’,” The Wire wrote.

Drum Ecstasy skilfully mixes various styles of electronic and rock music: Industrial, Noise-Rock, Drum’n’Bass, Tech-House, Techno… It looks fresh and extreme as an experiment or avant-garde should be. Sound effects generated by Drum Ecstasy with a power saw, drills, or even a vibrator, fit organically into the aesthetics of a modern industrial performance. The band denies any labels of its style.

Every Drum Ecstasy show is unique, wherever and in whatever form it has occurred. The bandmates’ energy fits harmoniously into the context of any venue.
