With just over a year having past since his first releases, Russia’s Paul Von Aphid is still an emerging talent, though he’s already pressed his skills into service on a variety of projects. First coming to our attention with some EPs from psych/experimental duo Modern Howl, he’s about to release the debut LP from solo project Zex Model, released by desire (who’ve brought us records by Bestial Mouths, //TENSE//, and The Present Moment, amongst others). Zex Model is poised to connect with a wider audience in North America than Aphid’s previous work, given Mind Slaughter‘s debt to a very pure strain of electro-industrial which originated on this side of the Iron Curtain back when there still was one.
