about

The album "The Plague Year" is IRKLIS´ latest work of art and concept album. THE PLAGUE YEAR creates a cold, narrative atmosphere reflecting the time of the Great Plague of London (1665-1666).

Two guidelines were used to capture this horrifying atmosphere.
First is Daniel Defoe´s novel ”A Journal of the Plague Year“; all lyrics being inspired by this novel.
Second, is the harsh ambiance of 1980's industrial music, created by utilising equipment from that and preceding eras, analogue synthesizers and sound technology like: EMS VCS 3, ARP 2600, Doepfer A-100, Roland TR-808, Moog Source, Roland Alpha Juno, Yamaha SS30, Doepfer Vocoder, Roland Space Echo RE-201 and many more.

IRKLIS is an old latvian word for oar/helm, mostly used in a poetic or philosophical sense.
