Biography

WILHELM CURSE began his two decade-plus career DJing in the Goth/Industrial genre in the early 1990’s, under the tutelage of the legendary “Super DJ Demi-God” Myk World. During Goth/Industrial’s 1990s heydays, he racked up time behind the mixer at some of the southeast’s most infamous goth nights, such as: Netherworld: Savannah, Netherworld: Orlando (@ Visage), Alcatraz (Gainesville, FL), The Florida Theatre (Gainesville, FL), Respectable Street Cafe (West Palm Beach, FL), and a stint as resident DJ at The Dominion (Jacksonville, FL).

In late 1996, he joined Cleopatra Records’ industrial mainstays THE ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB as keyboardist, succeeding the late Rev. Dr. Luv. During this period of almost non-stop touring, he shared the stage with such acts as: Danzig, Coal Chamber, GWAR, and Type O Negative. In addition he was able to sneak in some time behind the mixer at: The Drop Shop (Huntington, WV), RCKNDY (Seattle, WA), Whisky A Go-Go (L.A.), and The Angel (New Orleans, LA). In 2006 he began playing live shows as a member of Metropolis Records’ Power-Noise/Industrial juggernaut TERRORFAKT, hitting venues from Arizona to to New York, with two live appearances at the Kinetik festival in Montreal, QC.

In 2008 he came out of “DJ Retirement”, and became resident DJ at Factory (Jacksonville, FL). Along with DJ JOSE, he brought a badly needed hard-edge back to the North Florida Goth/Industrial club scene. During this period, he also shared the mixer with DJ Synthestruct, DJ Ryan Black, DJ Mikey Shadow, Curse Mackey, and Martin Atkins.

Since 2015, he has been making guest appearances along with his former TERRORFAKT bandmate, DJ RevilAtion at Fallout: RVA (Richmond, VA) and Aftermath (Norfolk, VA). Together, the “Dynamic Duo” have brought back an old-school style of DJing that eschews software-based “DJing” and predetermined setlists, in favor of CD decks, mixers, and requests. As of 2018 he continues to assault the dance floor with industrial hits, and slows it down with goth rock classics, establishing himself as southeast Virginia’s “Sheriff of Goth/Industrial”.
