At first glance, it could be said that Huoratron (that's whore-a-tron) is going for the "sex sells" contingent; the sublimely NSFW video for "Corporate Occult" (viewable below) falls somewhere in between Paris Hilton-style night-vision porno, Paranormal Activity, and a goth-y horror flick. But unlike anything by Katy Perry, the sex-begets-commerce element falls aside after the booming, distorted bass kicks in. Fans of an instrumental Crystal Castles and Ed Banger-style beats, pay attention.
Huoratron is the nom de plume of Finland's Aku Raski, who released the Prevenge EP via Last Gang Records earlier this year. Chock full of blackened, distorted electro beats, the EP features both the original "Corporate Occult" track and the Mixhell remix. It does not contain the Deathface Remix though, which is downloadable and streamable below for the first time.
