Aberrant Behavior - Disorder
If looks could kill, Aberrant Behavior would slice up anyone who gave them a mere glance out of the corner of their eye. The powerful duo of Dutch producer Benjamin Schoones (Benjamin'sPlague, Noire Antidote) and the Gothic Femme Fatale Adora BatBrat have combined their fun, dark imagery and bouncy electro beats to form Aberrant Behavior. As one could well imagine, Aberrant Behavior is aiming to be a well produced but sleazy and perverse project that will fit well in the underground electronic clubs from around the world. If this is truly their aim then they have smashed through the bull's-eye and shattered the target.
Being lightly unveiled in the end of June, Aberrant Behavior has been releasing a steady stream of teasers leading up to their single debut Disorder. The title track of the album is a completely re-imagined version of 'Disorder' which was initially released via BatBrat's other musical project Asperger Syndrome. Trance influences and fun, upbeat electro influences make up the majority of the song. BatBrat's vocals are, of course, influenced by all your favorite 80s Goth icons.
The second song that comes with Disorder is titled 'A$$f*ck'. If you cannot guess what this song is about you're too young and should not be on this page. The lyrics are entirely based around BDSM, anal destruction, and a perverse dominatrix who is not afraid to crack the whip. "Now, shut up, stop crying/It's time for round two," are just some of the lyrics found within the song. Coming from BatBrat's mouth is frightening to some - but sexy and appealing to others.
While Disorder is only the first taste we have received of Aberrant Behavior, I'm sure there will be more fun to be had with the band. Schoones is fantastic when it comes to production - that has been seen on more than one occasion with his other projects and now this - and BatBrat's style and lyrics provide an extra ounce of humorous sleaze. Put this on blast and dance as much as you can!

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
