KARDIAC: Horror Inspired Musician


From the press release:

From Upstate Middletown, New York staggers one of the most controversial artists known to the underground, “KARDIAC.” He has been releasing music and beat production for well over adecade all the while enhancing his own company, “KARDIAC Music,” with his other talents, such as graphic design and film.

Over the years, KARDIAC has also been involved in several group project album releases of which he published himself. It was in 2011, when he came back strong with his 4th solo album release, “The Afternoon of Extravagant Delight,” as he broadcast his very first professional music video, “The Nest.” That album took a different and out of the ordinary approach from the monotonous style that rap had to offer at the time. KARDIAC has appeared on radio stations in New York, and also performed all over the United States opening for many major artists in the underground industry.

In 2012, KARDIAC began creating his own official videos and commercials. This includes: video production, video editing, special effects, and film scoring. He has since released a few album release promotional commercials. For his December 2013 album, “Sleep Deprivation,” he showcased his first independently produced official music video for the track entitled “It’s Hard to Keep a Secret.”

KARDIAC is fully engaged in his 6th solo album preparation. No details have been officially released; however, we can say that there will be another official KARDIAC music video to come later this year. Midst the planning and developing his next release, KARDIAC continues to develop beat production and artwork for the general public.

Our Thoughts: It’s extremely rare to see rap mashed with horror, but looking at KARDIAC’S videos and artwork, it’s easy to see that he’s a huge horror fan. As well as a music career, his website describes the plot of a short film he wrote, edited and produced the special effects for as being a tribute to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Taking a look at his lyrics, the slasher and exploitation themes are apparent (Upside down disemboweled my guess she’ll miss’em,Her animals hung by their necks from her digestive system) Check out some of his horror inspired artwork below too.
