New Noise Magazine is hosting the advance stream of Alterer, a remix album of the 2021 Stumbling Through The Walls LP by Danish progressive noise rock act HIRAKI, on the eve of the record’s release through Nefarious Industries.
Alterer features reworkings from ten artists who stem from a wide and varied array of musical backgrounds but have been selected by HIRAKI because of their superb ears and skills within sound transformation. The compilation is a nonprofit project brought to life by Solidarity Reworks, a new venture by visual artist, multi-instrumentalist, and HIRAKI vocalist Jon Gotlev (noheroes.dk). The project brings together artists and cultural activism in a nonprofit creative collective. The outcome is super limited edition music reworks and apparel – all in favor of a good cause that deserves more attention.
Among the contributing artists are friends from exquisite hardcore acts such as LLNN, Hexis, and Eyes. But the list also boasts of renowned EDM artists such as MirrorSHIP and Malou Mørkeberg. The Danish masters of art-pop KH Marie have even translated and re-sung all of the vocals for their version of “Wonderhunt.”
The feature at New Noise, in addition to the advance stream of the record, features a track-by-track breakdown of the album with quotes and statements from each of the contributing artists involved in reworking the songs for Alterer.
