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 Alec Empire and Daedelus.
In 2018, the actualization of DZSTRKRFT’s Black Metal concept will come to life in the form of Apocalypse Horizon. In conjunction with Sanctus bandmate, Jason Spawn, the two united over a shared desire to capture the spirit of the elite Black Metal architects. The result–a 5-song EP of blasting dynamics, composed and produced by roycifer, accompanied by the lyrical and vocal ferocity of Jason Spawn.
