Electropunk project Jung Shadow Releases New EP "Boxcutter"
Electropunk and industrial enthusiast Jung Shadow has released their new EP “Boxcutter”. The three-track album contains an amalgamation of influences from founder Kevin N. Hell’s background including industrial, punk, and hardcore. Experimental synthesizers, raw tones, and whisper-screams will fill the void as you travel through these songs. “BOXCUTTER” is the start of a trilogy of EPs set to release throughout 2022.

Speaking on “BOXCUTTER”, founder Kevin N. Hell had this to say: This set of songs is part of three separate EPs being released in 2022. “BOXCUTTER” contains three songs in total each with different themes. The first is about the resilience and strength of people when faced with the worst. The second is about moving onto a new chapter in life, even when you are stubborn and set in your ways. The third is about being mistreated about those around you.
Jung Shadow is the solo project of Kevin N. Hell. Hell began his musical journey around 1998 when he picked up his first guitar. It wasn’t long after that he played in local punk and hardcore bands. However, his love for synthesizers would come much later. 2019 saw Hell buying drum machines and synths, and switching from a guitar player / songwriter to a one-person band. Thus, Jung Shadow was born.
Jung Shadow released their debut album “No One Left To Disappoint” in April of 2020. The twelve-track album caught on well within the industrial and underground music scenes with the likes of Divide and Conquer saying that the album is “a solid start”. Jung Shadow continued their journey with the singles ‘Glass On Glass’ and ‘Brick x Brick’ in 2021. ‘Brick x Brick’ went on to be remixed by Jim Willig of Venetian Veil.
2022 sees Jung Shadow stepping into new territory with a trilogy of EPs. “BOXCUTTER”, released on January 7th, is the start of this new trilogy. The EPs are set to be released throughout 2022 with Jung Shadow continuing his mastery of this new art.
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.
