Product Notes

Starting in 2014 as a collaboration between visual artist Heather Gabel and percussionist Seth Sher, the Chicago based industrial duo known simply as Hide was formed. The following three years have seen Hide crash through with a number of aggressively rendered singles and EP's while quietly collecting the shattered pieces that would form their debut full length album on DAIS, "Castration Anxiety".

Those familiar with Hide's provocative live performances will already be accustomed to the hypnotic low-end and sinister vocal delivery that has become the band's signature. The opening track, "Fall Down", sets an eerie tone that permeates "Castration Anxiety" until the end. Throbbing pulses swirling around Gabel's death laden mantras succumb to themes harvesting power from desperation and hopelessness.

"Wildfire" keeps the same repetitive, dark emphasis but delves deeper into the ideas of the physical world rejecting it's inhabitants. Harkening back to the slow, brooding industrial anthems from decades before, Hide's treatment of this sound is notably unique as it is familiar. Tracks such as "F***ed (I Found Heaven)" and "Bound/Severed" ratchet up the tempo with a hedonistic dance floor séance.
