L'ocelle Mare

L'ocelle Mare consists solely of Thomas Bonvalet, of Cheval de Frise fame.
His compositions as L'ocelle Mare are just as, if not more, complicated than they were during the Cheval de Frise years. The main difference is the obvious lack of song structure here.
This is not free-composition, but tediously constructed, felt-out melodies and rhythms that are played flawlessly during live performances. Every single noise and click that you hear is completely intended.

Emperor is an influential Norwegian band that represents a synth laden, progressive yet brutally aggressive and chaotic part of the genre, something quite different from the minimalism of other originators of the Norwegian sound (e.g. Darkthrone). The band was formed around the core members Samoth (Tomas Thormodsæter Haugen) and Ihsahn (Vegard Sverre Tveitan) of the band Thou Shalt Suffer and bass player Mortiis (Håvard Ellefsen) in Notodden, Norway, 1992.

Child abuse

There are three bands named Child Abuse. The first was a 1977 LA punk band that later mutated into The Simpletons(posh boy). The second was a NJ hardcore band that released the single 'Bring It,' on Mutha Records in 1983. The third is the last remaining:
CHILD ABUSE bring together playfully wild keyboards, throbbed bass stabs, stuttering piledriver percussion and demonic vocal fits. To make matters more terrifying, CHILD ABUSE embody the musical spirit of a drunken Thelonious Monk in a head-on car wreck with Gorguts.

The full name of DDAA is Déficit Des Années Antérieures.
DDAA was an obscure group of radical experimental noise makers used improvisation and collage to craft strange sounds and deconstructed songs for highly creative music that is as far off the path of conventions as that of similar but more known visionaries like the Residents and Nurse With Wound. In fact, DDAA roughly began the same time as NWW in the late '70s, started by three visual artists, Sylvie Martineau, Jean-Philippe Fee, and Jean-Luc Andre in Lion sur Mer, France.
