Industrial punk newcomer GLDN drops remix album Hemophilia.

Industrial punk newcomer GLDN has announced the upcoming remix album Hemophilia following the release of their debut EP, First Blood. Reimagining the twisted delights of the First Blood EP, along with unveiling a selection of dynamic covers and thrilling new original material, Hemophilia descends further into the murky shadows.

Mastermind Nicholas Golden comments: "Hemophilia, while primarily a remix album, is a project that came about because I felt as though I was not finished with First Blood. It features dark, atmospheric remixes of the songs from the First Blood EP, as well as several covers and original songs created specifically for this album. I feel that Hemophilia continues the story of the EP, further exploring themes of self-destruction and rebirth, taking them to new extremes. In the end, it's an album about the realization of one's own insignificance and what that means for a person in terms of freedom - the freedom to live, die, or rise and take control of your fate."

In 2017, GLDN was founded in Brooklyn, New York, by mastermind Nicholas Golden. For two years, Golden expanded on his experience as a performer, perfecting his art. In 2019, he began to search for live members to bring his music to the stage. GLDN draws musical and thematic influences from bands like NINE INCH NAILS, KORN, EVANESCENCE, DEFTONES, ROB ZOMBIE, PANTERA, HOLE, and PUSCIFER, but also films such as the dark and legendary, Suspiria. Delving deeper into the self-affirming gloom, Hemophilia expands on the ideas introduced in First Blood unveiling more of GLDN's musical prowess. The covers of ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE's "Animal" and GARBAGE's "#1 Crush" illustrate the band's adaptability and creativity, while the new original songs offer a devilish insight into GLDN's evolving musical direction. From delicate piano melodies and trap drums, through to eerie synths and demonic vocals, the band artfully weaves numerous instrumental textures and styles into their haunting web of heavy sounds.

Conjuring up the macabre and the diabolic, GLDN exposes the monstrous concepts that are so often hidden from view. Hemophilia exhibits the extreme aspects of life and death, through extreme manipulation of music.
