The veteran electro-metal outfit Rikets has recently released a stunning new music video to accompany “Infected And Controlled”, the 2nd single from the highly anticipated EP Tales From The Construct Alphaa.
Following the incredible response to “Misery”, the 1st track to emerge from the project in over a decade, “Infected & Controlled” finds the listener immediately in trance with darkwave synth, disco beats and maniacal cyborg vocals, culminating into classic Rikets aggression. Produced, recorded and mixed at Spider Studios outside of Cleveland, Ohio in Spring 2023 by Rikets founder and vocalist Scott Rose, along with longtime collaborator ,as well as, Rikets drummer, former Switched vocalist Ben Schigel (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Machine Gun Kelly), the track is a pandemic inspired anthem, with Rose warning us to be cautious of how AI is infecting and controlling every aspect of our lives.
Tales From The Contruct Alphaa will be released in Spring of 2024 via Godsize Records, an imprint of Art Is War Records.
The band debuted in 2004 and have released 2 acclaimed albums, the EP Anything For The Devil (2006) and All American Death Cult (2010). In addition to Rose and Schigel, the band is composed of bassist Nic Bell (Primer 55,Left4Dead) and guitarists BG Simpson (Anchored) & Trent Mercer.
