Dark electro

Back | Home | Up | Next

Dark Electro was a term used mainly in central Europe to describe the sinister sounds of electronic music groups like YelworC, Tri-state, Mortal Constraint, Arcana Obscura, Trial or Placebo Effect.

These bands were mainly inspired by electronic/industrial acts like The Klinik and Skinny Puppy. The compositions were mostly complex arranged and mingled with horror soundscapes, and grunts or distorted vocals. A notable artist was YelworC, a group from Munich, formed in 1988. They laid the foundations of the Dark Electro movement in the early '90s and represented the first act on the well-known german label Celtic Circle Productions.

In following years, Dark Electro was displaced by Techno-influenced styles like Hellektro or Aggrotech.
