Cursed Chimera / Press

“The music was mesmerizing, the sounds of electronic and industrial rhythms with a heavy punk/metal undertone. The musical acts performing that evening were Cursed Chimera and Sadore and they provided the perfect soundtrack to the evenings atmosphere and energy.”

“Below, L.A.M.P. spread some of that love the Daevl's way shortly after releasing Tragic That Drones Can't Cry on Clinical Archives.”

“And keep a singed ear out for ex-Seattle/current Anaheim producer Cursed Chimera (Ben Thompson), who gets medieval on dubstep's ass—among other things.”

“Cursed Chimera (Benatos Thompson) brings a more traditional IDM gestalt to his new album, Infinite Caustic Change (on Chinese netlabel Bypass; bp.bai-hua.org). He cites British duo Plaid as an influence, and similarities are apparent. Like that Warp Records artist, Cursed Chimera flaunts a varied palette of sounds and approaches.”

“The Great Caldune finishes on a peak with "Let Us Not Remember," which combines spooky, delicate harp trills, a dulcet female chorale and incongruously explosive, spasmodic beats. This disorienting track epitomizes Cursed Chimera's ability to generate a distinctive sonic palette unmoored from genre strictures.”
