Belladone/Black Knight Satellite

We are pleased to present another French/Canadian collaboration. Vancouver's Black Knight Satellite return with Belladone of Lyon.

Belladone's half resonates with a heavy crusty vibe that doesn't relent. This is a twopiece in top form. Juggling family and work commitments over the holidays of 2016 they came together to record, mix and master these tracks themselves and the love and attention to detail they put in show. Pounding drums and downtuned guitars intertwine with dual guttural vocals. There are a few quiet moments for one to catch their breath before the assault continues, including a hauntingly maudlin outro on their last track. In place of sharing their lyrics Belladone opted to write a short letter to the listener in the liner notes of the album. We would be loathe to try and pin them down by genre; we think Belladone say it best on their facebook page. "Belladone - Violence Duo"

Black Knight Satellite return with a selection of songs that represent their live set from the first half of 2016. These tracks mark a progression in their sound as well as experimentation down different avenues. Blistering songs with shrieked dual vocals that burn out and implode after half a minute to a longer emo song that warps into a dance beat breakdown. This chapter of BKS history showcases their ability to go from sassy to angry at the drop of a pin and still have fun. Their half ends on a slow burning track with skittish echoing guitar twangs and sullen growls that ignites briefly before going into a drawn out noisy outro.

Track Name: Black Knight Satellite - Breathless Mahoney
winter may never come back
and I will learn to love from afar
let's hope this summer won't last forever
Track Name: Black Knight Satellite - Don Diego de la Vega
won't stand for this idle worship
internalized manifestations of grandeur
depicted upon false idols
projecting the inadequacy trapped within class
save a dollar as the cure for your
Track Name: Black Knight Satellite - Epidemiology of a Sick Jump
Los: keep your head down in the ground
a healthy skepticism of faith with the decision
that it predates
somehow I can see in the darkness
clearer than the aura clouding me
night visions
maybe it's my disposition
awake in these endless nights
sleepwalking through my waking life
dressed up for a long halloween
provocation from anything
do I dare disturb the earth?
maybe it's better if I gave up on her
everyone seems so far along
am I really too far gone?
you are still so young they say
growing old and rotten with decay
Miggy: I am the aching heart
I am the shaking lips
I am a social construct
we run from sinking ships
Track Name: Black Knight Satellite - To the Shores of Distant Stars
I resign myself to fight
the oppressors who forsake the species
a lack of productivity
is our best defense against
this crisis of conscience
swarm the government offices
your participation
in this flawed system isn't mandatory
establish new rhetoric
for the sake of betterment
busted individual
you gave up for something insidious
you look so hideous
mouth stinks of the ashes
tongue speaks like a serpent
nothing I wouldn't sacrifice
to dance on your corpses
Track Name: Black Knight Satellite - The Alnwick Garden
conjoined twins
separated at birth
each one lacking the other's worth
the sear over my heart won't heal
by the by
I can't abie
too dead inside
kill all corporate fascists
preoccupied with spreadsheets
to notice what it cost us
to realize what the cost was
the changing face of trembling fate
the rotten core of a nation's stake
what choice do we have?
commiserate and play dead
we know it won't last and yet we remain
shackled to the tyranny of post-modernity
