DZSTRKRFT (pronounced “Disaster Craft”) is the solo project of Los Angeles based musician roycifer. Originally envisioned as a Black Metal concept, DZSTRKRFT’s 2014 debut was anything but–Cut, Paste, Destroy was an abstract, beat–driven EP mixing breakbeats with modern glitch and bass aesthetics. That and subsequent releases drew heavily from the intersection of roycifer’s early Earache influences, specifically crossover acts Godflesh and Scorn, with eclectic electronic artists like Atari Teenage Riot and Daedelus.
In 2018, DZSTRKRFT’s pre-birth abstraction will come to realization in the form of Apocalypse Horizon, a 5-song EP of blasting Black Metal. In conjunction with Sanctus bandmate Jason Spawn, the two combine forces–ditching breakbeats for blast beats–to capture the spirit of the elite Black Metal architects.
