Biography“Schizophrenics are never alone” ERS unveils electro-punk EP The OpponentSkrillex meets Garbage with a splash of Queen -The Opponent is the the sophomore release from Brooklyn recording artist Evan Russell Saffer (aka ERS) follow up to 2010’s rock opera Neon Gas. The Opponent fuses his high voltage rock, integrating electronics and dance beats – 5 tracks of massive dub electro dance metal. Saffer’s signature melodic songwriting, monstrous hooks and searing vocal work (including spoken word) are all there along with rave-esque dance beats and mesmerizing guitar work.ERS: “I’ve always wanted to make this type of record, infusing all that I love about dance along with melodic hooks and that rock edge that I’ve done for years. We took cues from Dubstep, House, Hard Rock and Metal and came up with this massive brainchild that we’re all loving. It’s been fun working with both Martin Kestner (DJ/Sequencing) and Eric Bair (lead guitar) who are both kindred spirits in their passion for great music and enormous talents. This album is about facing myself, my ego and inner demons – Over this past year I have been heavily influenced by the teachings of Kabbalah along with the writings of Eckhart Tolle which turned me onto this type of mental awareness – and my mind is not a safe place to be.. The music along with the album artwork aims to reflect that both the demon and the deity are within and they are both YOU! Just a different shade of the same person and you choose who you want to be. It sounds heavy and there are definitely some dark moments, but the overall vibe of this release is very uplifting, sonically massive, and very liberating.” ~ERSTracklisting The Opponent:01 Scarecrow (spoken word)02 Beautiful Stranger03 One Friend04 ICLYAT IDN (I Couldn’t Love You Anymore T han I Do Now) 05 Best In Me- Tracks 2-5 produced by Martin Kestner and ERS and mixed by Martin Kestner, Track 1 produced and mixed by Kase Reese, Engineered by Tommy Sica, additional recording by Gino DiGeso, mastered by Hakan Ludvigson of Substream Records Sweden- performances by Evan Russell Saffer (voices), Eric Bair (guitars), Martin Kestner (beats/synth/effects), Kase Reese (beats/synth/effects), Cody Darbe (bass)ERS has been performing and recording most of his life, has released records as the frontman for road warriors Fixer (Riker Hill Records) from 2000-2009 touring coast to coast in the USA.
