Band/artist history
Bio Terror Technology definition summed up, Viktim. Viktim is an industrial band from new jersey. A typical description of this very untypical band is chaos, violence, rhythmic assault on the senses and the body or as one astute observer put it, hearing a viktim song, is like listening to a rape on the radio. Viktim originally formed in 1996 out of the ashes of countless garage bands from the cornocpia of punk that is southern new jersey. Drawing influences from punk bands such as Black Flag, and Christian Death, melding that anger with the pounding pulse of Public Enemy, NWA and Schooly D, the technology of Ministry, Front Line Assembly, and KMFDM, the darkness of Skinny Puppy and the breakdowns and noise of Unsane, Cop Shoot Cop, and Godflesh, Viktim was born unto us. A cyberpunk band unlike any to have come before, and none will ever follow, Viktim was formed and performed by true street slime, and scum. The tattooed menances that wander about tbe alleys behind the local liquor store would be a good group to look amongst to find viktim members. Eddie Threat, singer, programmer, of the current incarnation, originally spit this putrid mess of hatred, shit and filth unto the world as a solo performance artist, until combining his talents with his kin of the South Jersey punk and hardcore scenes. Enlisting Nick the Scum as a creative partner, the band took its initial steps towards a full cacophony. Later brought in, was Scott, the percusionist, and avid fan of the underground electronic dance scene, came aboard. A lifelong friend and associate of the mess of viktim, he was welcomed aboard, and quickly made himself a permanment fixture. Following that, a line of talented guitar players, that came and went in a decidly spinal tap sense. There names have been omitted to protect the guilty, but at their permission I would name the array of Drug Addicts, Suicidal Miscreants, Thugs, Punks, and Felons that blessed the stage with us. Viktim was lucky and happy to have the fortune of everyone to ever have performed with us, and are grateful for all the blood they spilt in our service. Cannon closed out the revolving door of viktim guitar players. Bringing an urgency to the band, and a very specific need for violence and blood. A product of the system itself, another bastard hatemonger, welcomed into the viktim fold. Willing to spread the filth that we call music to the world. A slew of self released propaganda has come from the Viktim camp over the years, along with numerous singles, covers, and outright SLANDER of the name EBM. From 2003 2006 viktim performed countless shows decimating the stages of clubs in new York City, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. If you took talley of the events at a viktim show, it would sound much like the police blotter record of an assault. Drunk and Discorderly conduct, riot, public intoxication, broken jaws, lacerated skin, lynchings, smashed bottles, broken guitars, incinerated equipment, crowd participiation, reputations tarnished, medical bills soaring, attempted suicides, overdoses and a general blacklisting of the band was attempted. In late 2007, the felon factory full of toxic narcotics spit out a new line up. New being a "loose" word. MIcheal Mythix has joined the fold on e-drums, and is set to unleash all sorts of debauchery on an unsuspecting public and bash out a brutal beat to dominate the dancefloor. Along with this infection, the disease has gotten worse as Jaws has joined the cult on Keys, bringing a disharmonic menace to an already twisted cacaphony. Currently, the band is working on new material, and looking to hit the stage again this summer. If you are wondering what to expect of viktim this time around, a good hint would be to take a blender turn it on, and stick your hand in.
