ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dead Poets Society, will take you on an intelligent electronic and gothic journey through the inner space of the human soul and the technological age, with their debut album, THE ELECTRIC HAZE.

Open your heart and share the agonizing story of a young rape victim struggling to cope in "I Don't (andrea's fault mix)" or the energetic hit dance single "Quintessential". Fancy yourself a fan of electronica, check out the title hit "The Electric Haze"

Their sound has been described as a diverse combination of hard dance (juno reactor, enigma, yello) and goth (siouxsie and the banshees, collide, and distorted reality).





Experience the world that resides between organic life and artificial intelligence....The Electric Haze.

Reviews

"Count Dead Poets Society as one of the few modern and innovative bands in the sub-cultural underground of the disenfranchised that is defining Electronic Goth. Pop culture is a roomful of mirrors, which means that there are infinite possibilities for unflattering angles. Not here! The Electric Haze is a celebration of the soul, infused with powerful rhythm, ambient techno improvisation and infectious industrial groove. This recording tells a story of its own. Three musicians, Wa's driving beats, Tim Gibson's chord-and-melody interplay, and Raven Nightshado, keyboards and vocals, come together to create an original voice which transcends musical boundaries. A highly recommended musical experience with seamless vision, spirited interplay and dynamic complexity."

"On their new CD "The Electric Haze", Dead Poets Society manages sounding like your favorite music from the recent past while having their feet planted firmly in the future of electronic music. Mixing manual instrument manipulation with computer generated loops, each title morphs and mutates into a cross hybridization of familiar and totally new sounds. Complex beats and crisp synthetics juxtaposed with gothic rock and exotic sounds augment songs that begin with lush ambient atmospheres. Tracks sounding like sweeping cinematic scores turn into music hard enough to bruise the dance floor. A gene splicing of New Order, BIGOD20 and Future Sounds of London might sound something like Dead Poets Society. While the title track "The Electric Haze" and "The Portal" are outstanding examples of their sound, the Martin Dennyesque "I Dream of Japan" is pure exotica and shows this bands range and hints at surprises yet to come." -- M.W.

Gothic Beauty, Issue #5

I found this album dizzying, elating, chaotic, and hypnotic.
Dead Poets Society
The Electric Haze


by Poseidon

Of all the musical genres I know, the one I find the truly hardest to explain is "electronic". Here we have one great big huge field of musical beauty (and terror) where anything that has even the slightest hint of using a keyboard other than a Bosendorfer piano is instantly reduced to "anybody can do it." Sure. Right. Whatever.

These people have never heard Dead Poets Society. Neither had I until about an hour ago. Read on. The biography from this band was very "factual". The Electric Haze is their debut album. Wa is the programmer, percussionist, songwriter, and "driving force behind the music". Gibson also works the boards, providing more of the ethereal facets behind the music." Raven Nightshado performs keyboards, vocals, and the more "melancholic" facets behind the music. Etc. etc.etc. Very factual.
What the biography does not explain, in my humble opinion, is how three simple "people" created such an amazing album!

Define the music? That's easy. Unfortunately they don't have a genre for "brilliant, unique, that's some damn fine coffee." You can dance, sleep, dream, regret, drive, f***, sit around, or do anything to this music (with the exception of headbanging, unless you're just plain weird).

Electronic, perhaps, but with the creativity of The Orb and Dead Can Dance intermixed with it. This album is a beautiful, gentle ride through the kindest parts of chaos. A silent world called delirium. You never know where the music may take you next. From a smooth, rhythmic ride in "The Portal", or visiting the places where no one is innocent in "Damn Fine Coffee". I found this album dizzying, elating, chaotic, and hypnotic. Some of the BEST "electronic" music I've heard in a long time. These three musicians are planning a tour in support of this new album. I would urge you to check them out.
