About the album: “folkINFERNO is not a legend or a myth. It exists somewhere between the burning heart of Mojdeh, the ironworks of Fyodor Sakhnovski’s mechanized brain and the unstoppable force of Mason Payne on drums. This well-oiled machination achieves completion after a masterly techno upgrade from Nick Webster.
On tracks like Statement Of, Mojdeh’s haunting female vocals scale over back to bass-ics riffing and the percussive abuse of metal percussion including a propane tank, a satellite dish and a post driver. A few of the songs on the album, like A Need to (Deepen) and Of The People feature brighter guitaring and a certain sweetness but on the whole, this is a poetic exploration of rage and lament.
Recommended tracks include: Something Stronger, Statement Of, Of the People and Fever 103.” - Mackenzie Wilson.

About the band: Bringing together elements of experimental pop, industrial and folk traditions, Chicago’s eclectic »radiant devices« seek to explore non-traditional sounds and arrangements, pairing metal percussion with downtempo synths and punk energy. Frontwoman, Mojdeh, shifts between rich sung vocals and spoken word commonly exploring a range of social and personal topics. In the words of CJ Laity (ChicagoPoerty.com): "When I think of Mojdeh performing her poetry into a bullhorn, I think of a female Jello Biafra."

"...nothing short of refreshing and daringly creative...whatever the classification, the sound comes off as a gumbo rich with a dash of spoken word, jazz, ambient beats, and hard rock..." - Loud Loop Press

Just a few artists that »radiant devices« has shared the stage with: Saul Williams, Chevelle, Elzhi (of Slum Village), Sorne, and Making Movies.
