Controlled Bleeding

Experimental noise band, formed in Boston 1978. Notorious for their early recordings which were exercises in brutal noise, such as their infamous 1985 album Knees and Bones which utilised pneumatic drills, metal percussion and cement mixers as sound sources. Subsequent albums delved into sonic and textural experimentation as the band gradually grew more sophisticated and palatable, however a number of less experimental, commercial industrial albums were released on Wax Trax! in the late 1980s.

Æthenor

Deep in Ocean Sunk the Lamp of Light is the debut from the trio of Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O)))), Daniel O’Sullivan (Guapo), and Vincent de Roguin (Shora). Taking its title from The Iliad, the music here is deep and cosmic, completely unlike anything you’d expect from such heavyweights. More in the tradition of Nurse With Wound’s "Spiral Insana" or Klaus Schulze’s "Cyborg" than any contemporary trend, the tracks float along in a masterful collage of activity, where careful scene changes highlight O’Sullivan’s classic but artfully placed Rhodes bombs, de Roguin’s organ, and O’Malley’s guitar.
