Make no mistake that this is our main man in Denmark. After three singles on KOMPAKT and a slew of releases on his own label Echocord, Copenhagen based Mikkel Meldgaard aka MIKKEL METAL presents his first full length of new material. MIKKEL METAL has always refused to force himself on the listener, rather acting as a commentator on what can occur from a higher state of conscience, without provoking any sort of superiority complex. Arrogance is not his thing. After all, this humble graduate of philosophy has recently turning thirty and entering fatherhood, a constant observer of his surroundings and himself. VICTIMIZER is his self-invented expression. The word characterizes people who always see themselves as the role of a victim. Those that always blame others as responsible for their miseries. The victimizer isn't able to take one's life into their own hands. Those who come across such personalities know how severely these sorts can get on a person's nerves. Deep breathing seemed to be the only cure to this sorry predicament. MIKKEL METAL anticipates VICTIMIZER will serve as an alternative tranquilizer against such mistreatment of the soul… VICTIMIZER gives new meaning to the proverb 'the more haste, the less speed' - his music shines with wisdom. Oh yes, there's one last thing before we leave you. Pay heed and be prepared to be bewildered as to where one should categorize this release… Though VICTIMIZER inspires from the fringes of dub, indie-rock, vocoder-pop and of course Minimal Techno, this album isn't so simple to pigeonhole in your encyclopedia of genres. Genuinely, MIKKEL METAL has delivered dynamic, universal music that once again showcases the progressive growth and depth in KOMPAKT's blossoming family.
