DrakenWerks is a Welsh music artist specialising in Industrial / EBM / Something Else genre of music. New album, No Prisoners, due out May.
DrakenWerks is the creative electornic project of Draken, Goth and Industrial DJ and Promoter from South Wales. A distinctly different yet highly danceable mixture of sounds makes each DrakenWerks track stand out from the rest. DrakenWerks has played a number of times live, having supportted bands inside and out of Wales including V2A, AshestoAngel, Ayria, Inertia, 3 Teeth and Alien Vampires, where Draken is joined on stage by Zerostar and Kelly on the synths.
In 2015, DrakenWerks released their new single, Suck it up M***er F***er, an extremely popular single that has sold world wide and seen their numbers of fans soar. In the first part of 2016, DrakenWerks will be releasing their next album, No Prisoners, featuring a number of the songs they play live plus many more. Both the single and album have benefitted from bringing on board a professional and professional producer in the shape of Gregor Beyerle (Formerly of Modulate, currently of Repear and Skyla Vertex and also live synths in L’ame Immortelle and Nachtmahr) and his Dreamcatcher Studio to really give the new tunes some real dance floor shaking kick.
This is only the beginning for DrakenWerks, there is a lot more stuff in the pipeline for release over the next coming years, including a complete rebuild of the first album and DrakenWerks third album due out in 2017.
