Crushing State have released their debut single “Surveillance” on the Swedish label Megahype. A video is available now. Crushing State’s sound fuses electro-industrial, metal, and a nuanced sonic palette.

Crushing State is the new electro industrial metal band of mastermind Chris Ruiz (ex-And One, Pakt) and members of Seadrake and Solar Fake. Founder of the project is Chris Ruiz (ex-And One, Pakt). Ruiz’s journey began in 1998 when he first delved into crafting industrial-sounding tapes and an unreleased full-length album. Fast forward 25 years, and he is breathing new life into a project that had long been dormant.

For the occasion he teamed up with Mathias Thürk (ex-Minerve, Seadrake), guitarist André Feller (Solar Fake, Dreadful Shadows), and drummer Vincent Viebig.

Here’s the new video for “Surveillance”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
