VOMITO NEGRO is latin (portuguese/spanish) for "black
vomit", the last stage of the disease yellow fever, when the patient throws up
his putrefied intestines and ultimately dies. Macabre? One might consider
VOMITO NEGRO"s interest in the darker side of the human condition as
unhealthy, but in fact it is fuelled by a desire to cope with and to understand
life (and consequently, death) as we know it.
handle their topics with grim sarcasm and/or penetrating personal involvement;
under the surface however, they give way to a message of redemption, passion
From the start on, flexibility is one of VOMITO
NEGRO"s major qualities.VOMITO NEGRO is never content with a certain
formula: their musical approach, essentially based on the European
"Industrialist" tradition of the early eighties, takes a different angle with
every record. Tracing back their history through albums as diverse as
"Vomito Negro" (their haunting debut from 1985) to "Wake Up"
(1992) one hears growth and evolution in VOMITO NEGRO"s varied
soundscapes. VOMITO NEGRO"s synthesized psychodramas range from
danceable to contemplative, from instrumental and ambient to voice-ridden and
brutal. Live, the sound and the imagery of VOMITO NEGRO"s stage are an
inescapable force setting alight the imagination of the listener/spectator.
After the album "Fireball"(2002) VOMITO NEGRO was put on hiatus.
In 2008, Gin Devo decided that it was time to wake up the beast again,
VOMITO NEGRO recorded the double album "Skull & Bones"
& "The 2K10 re-makes".
Tracks like "Black Tie, White
Shirt" and "Darkmoon" were already tested on the crowd of the WGT
Festival 2009, in Leipzig and the Bimfest in Antwerpen. Just after its release
"Skull & Bones" entered the German Alternative Charts (DAC) in tenth
position, only to climb further up to the second position one week later.
Meanwhile the remake version of their club classic "Move Your Body
(V2K10)", entered the DAC"s single charts shooting up to the 13th place.
In times where every band that puts together tracks using
a standard sound module and vocal distortion in their bedroom is hyped as the
new hope in the "Harsh Electro" or "Dark Electro" genre, an album like
"Skull And Bones" feels like a cleansing shock. Belgian legend VOMITO
NEGRO, who have been active since the mid Eighties, still celebrate their
sound with an intensity, creativity and passion that makes most recent hard
Electro projects sound like a weekend trip to Disneyland. The spirit of
"Skull And Bones" is of the deepest black... no hope, no mercy! Rhythmic
loops are thudding relentlessly under dark sound scapes and the heavily
manipulated shouts leave no room for sunny feelings. Even after being active
for more than a quarter of a century, VOMITO NEGRO are still a trademark
name for a club compatible trip to hell that is bound to stirup , unsettle and
In 2010 VOMITO NEGRO released the EP "Slave
Nation" after a short period the album entered the German electro
web-charts to stay there for 8 weeks.
In 2013 VOMITO NEGRO
released Fall of an Empire an un compromised album that has
nothing to do with the trend of cyber techno.
In 2014 VOMITO
NEGRO releases the masterpiece Death Sun, once and for
all, VOMITO NEGRO goes his own way on the sonic pallet, the sound of
VOMITO NEGRO is unique, the only in his kind.
With Death SunVOMITO NEGRO did the job, only
using electronic hardware, no plug ins or software was used to produce the
album. Live, VOMITO NEGRO stands for a never seen punch of electro
power, hammering sequences, pumping live percussion, harsh synths, and vocals
that will blow your brain out.
