Thanatos acoustic with Binary Partners (electronic out of Chicago)
This is one of two or three shows related to the 20th anniversary of Thanatos' first LP, "This Endless Night Inside." It will be the album's only release show in the Northeast.
IN 1993 Projekt Records released Thanatos' "This Endless Night Inside." Reviewers (mostly from fanzines as the internet was not omnipresent) were perplexed. It wasn't goth. It wasn't ambient. It wasn't alternative. Most of the reviews simply dealt with the reviewers' own confusion.
What "This Endless Night Inside" was is a precursor to bands who would later have terms like "neo-folk" or "emo" hung around their necks. It was a work using acoustic guitar and synthesizers, and little else, to create sparse, heart-felt, political and humerous songs. It wasn't pop. It wasn't electronic. It wasn't folk.
On the 20th anniversary of the LPs release Thanatos founder Patrick Ogle is playing a few shows to commemorate the release. There may be some old Thanatos members along for the ride.
Thanatos began as a studio project between Ogle and Sam Rosenthal in the mid 1980s in South Florida. The first release was a cassette. Next, after years of writing and two fairly short recording sessions was This Endless Night Inside. Some of the hidden tracks on Endless Night were from the Thanatos cassette. In 1995, came the more political and doom-laded, An Embassy to Gaius.
The band then became a live act with Ogle, Eric Polcyn (Godbullies) and the late William Tucker (Ministry, Foetus, Chris Connelly Band). Various drummers also came into the band (including Interpol's Samuel Fogarino).
There have been four subsequent releases: The Neighbor of the Beast EP, Blisters, I Am Not Job and the recently released digital LP, The Exterminating Angel.
