How do you reinvent a genre, that has long been forgotten, and modernize it, without copying? Formalin already did this with their debut album and carried a whole genre into the present day. „The Berlin-based duo fascinated the younger club-electro generation as well as the oldschool-faction and received an enthusiastic response by the press while entering uncharted musical territories with their own unique blend of industrial, IDM and electro“.
Since 2 years „Berlin City Industrial“ symbolizes the reinvention of a style that was almost presumed dead and shows how modern and stylish hard electronic music can be. In terms of production set-up Formalin rely on modern, digital sound processing, as well as on distinctive analog equipment to create their multi-layered and cinematic soundscapes. The result is impressive in a sonic, visual and multimedia way.
On stage the project unfolds its full conceptual glory and channels the energy inherent in the songs perfectly. The mixture of fetish and fashion in combination with the dynamic performance of the band creates a first class audiovisual experience. Formalin play rocking live shows. Not at least because of Gabor‘s energetic live drumming and the charismatic voice of frontman Tominous they have a firm grip on their audience.
