Following ESA‘s debut album ‘Devotion, Discipline, and Desire‘ as well as this year’s encompassing 2nd album ‘How Pure Would Your Utopia Be?‘ on Hive Records, ESA (Electronic Substance Abuse) returns with an enormous new album on Tympanik Audio titled ‘The Sea & The Silence‘.

11 tracks of pure Industrial adrenaline, marked carefully by strong, complex atmospheres and dense, apocalyptic beats, ‘The Sea & The Silence‘ is a monster of an album, proclaiming two powerful elements, as the title suggests, with no apparent apologies to its potential victims.

With tracks ranging from dancefloor-mopping hard electronics to complex and modern tribal excursions, ‘The Sea & The Silence‘ takes the ESA sound even further into intense and engaging terrains.

Asserting heavy walls of bass-driven rhythms, vast levels of dynamism, commanding vocal stabbings, and intricately woven versatility, this new collection of impressive rhythmic Industrial promises to be ESA’s finest hour…

ESA’s ‘The Sea & The Silence‘ is available now on 6-panel digipak compact disc only from Tympanik Audio.
