Pro-jekt are an Electrogoth / Darkwave band. They were formed in January 2000, in Derbyshire, England. They engineered and financed their own demo album, and later signed to Nightbreed Recordings Ltd, in Aug 2001. Pro-jekt released their debut album on Nightbreed Recordings in April 2002. On the live circuit the band played over 90 performances, including touring with Mortiis and The Last Rites. In 2003 Pro-jekt completed a full UK Tour and held live dates in Italy, Belguim and France.
Starting his career as bass player in Norwegian black metal band Emperor, Mortiis quit to pursue solo work. Abandoning metal music, he dedicated himself to compose eerie and melancholic dark ambient soundtracks. After a demo cassette released on his own label Dark Dungeon Music, he had his first LP issued by German label Malicious Records, then he entered the pantheon of notorious Swedish company Cold Meat Industry, boosting his career.
There are mutliple artists with this name: 1) Nocturne. Originally hailing from Dallas, Texas (now based out of L.A.) the industrial/nu-metal band Nocturne is taking the country by storm. The band's CD "Guide to Extinction", has received rave reviews. InMusicWeTrust.com calls Nocturne's vocalist Lacey Conner "powerfully provacative". Nocturne has toured the U.S. with the likes of Mushroomhead, Dope, Pigface, King Diamond, and Bile, and has shared the stage with bands like Ministry, the Genitorturers, Bozo Porno Circus, and ohGr.
The Snake Corps came together in 1984 following the break-up of Sad Lovers & Giants (SL&G) the previous year.
Aiming for a harder-edged sound, core members Tristan Garel-Funk and Nigel Pollard advertised in the Melody Maker for the necessary musicians. After many auditions they settled on Marc Lewis and Liam McGuinness on vocals and bass respectively. This original incarnation set about establishing its own sound - recording demos of songs later to appear on the band
