Kaada/Patton "Bacteria Cult" Out Now

Apr. 1, 2016

Cover for Kaada / Patton - Bacteria Cult

Norwegian composer John Kaada and Mike Patton released their new album, Bacteria Cult, today. The long-awaited, second collaborative album since the 2004 release of Romances.

Mike Patton said of the pair’s reunion: “Working with John Kaada on this latest release was an honor and pure pleasure. His compositions have always resonated deeply with me and his orchestral arrangements for this project are harmonically dense and delicious! Each individual piece is so well constructed and inventively assembled that my vocal passages practically sang themselves. I’m hoping very much that we can seduce some eardrums and welcome listeners into this lush sonic ‘otherworld.’”

The eight-song, orchestral collection, which also features the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, exudes the music Ipecac has become well known for: eclectic, experimental and cinematic. Similar in feel to Fantômas’ Director’s Cut, as Kaada describes it, Bacteria Cult “dwells in the twilight zone where spooky and seductive meet.”
