Exclusive Video Premiere: Ohm’s Music Video ‘When Robots F**k’

Originally published Thursday, October 24, 2013 by Gregory Burkart, fearnet.com

Vancouver’s ultra-dark electro band Öhm is the brainchild of industrial icons Chris Peterson and Craig Joseph Huxtable—both of whom are high-profile names in industrial music, having worked with iconic bands like Front Line Assembly, Unit 187, Decree, Noise Unit and Landscape Body Machine.

The pair joined forces two years ago, partly as a creative outlet beyond the scope of their other projects, and also as a way of sharing their unique artistic vision. The team-up soon evolved into a legitimate band, and this month they released their self-titled debut album comprised of ten dark, scary heavy-beat EDM overtures dubbed “dark disco meets pop-electro.”

One of the spookiest tracks on Öhm is the dystopian sci-fi nightmare “When Robots Fuck,” which became the subject of this animated short film by Geoff Mark, making its World Premiere right here. The cinematic atmospheres conjured by the band are paired with Mark’s surreal, debris-littered apocalyptic landscapes, where the machines have clearly taken over… and as you can see, they’re getting along just fine without us.

Öhm is available on CD now via Artoffact Records. If you’re a fan of Front Line Assembly, or dark and heavy electronic dance music in general, this one’s a must-have for your collection.
