|Tactical Sekt is an elektro-industrial act consisting of Anthony Mather (USA - Vocals, Keyboards, Programming), Robert Schott (Live Synths,Visuals) and Jay Taylor (UK - Live Drums). They are known for their powerful, noisy, dark electronic sound.|
Tactical Sekt was conceived in the mind of Anthony Mather in about 2002/2003. Mather previously had experience with elektro-industrial music in his former band, Aslan Faction.
After some time, Aslan Faction stopped performing live and making new music, which persuaded Anthony Mather to devote himself totally to Tactical Sekt. The album “Geneticide” was soon put out and it featured, as Ant said in one interview: “…mostly songs that didn’t fit into Aslan Faction music profile…”.
Soon after “Geneticide” in 2003, “Burn Process” was released. The music and the atmosphere was much more euro-trance alike, emphasizing that Aslan Faction days were over.
In the following years Tactical Sekt were mostly performing live and doing remixes for other acts.
In spring 2006, a new album was coming out - “Syncope.” It featured 13 tracks, and besides the regular album, a limited edition was published which featured never released tracks, mostly from the “Geneticide” period.
|Tactical Sekt have been called pessimists. We have been called negative. Two labels with which we disagree. What Tactical Sekt will say is that it has become discontent with guile. We will not stand by and watch the world eat itself up with its desire to play the part of God and forcing nature's hand to create the monstrosity that is immortality or the "perfect" child. Playing with the power of the human gene. Sentencing our fellow men to death. Life is a puzzle and these abominations are the pieces that Tactical Sekt wishes to loose.|
Tactical Sekt is our way of shouting at the masses. It is our instrument of change. If this small voice is heard amidst the chaos then to us it is worth it.
Anthony started this project as a release, not an escape. It has been a very eventful couple of years. The success of Aslan Faction has really been overwhelming. Tactical Sekt, we hope, will compliment his work with Aslan Faction. It is an honest look into his mind.
