AUTHOR & PUNISHER, who recently premiered a song called “Flesh Ants”, has teamed up with Decibel Magazine to premiere another track, titled “Terrorbird”.
Decibel Magazine are now streaming a brand new AUTHOR & PUNISHER song, titled “Terrorbird,” on their website. According to these bastions of metallic might, the album opener “sounds more like Godzilla throwing down with Mechagodzilla with modern-day Tokyo underfoot. This grinding, overdriven track has, in fact, inspired us to formally, uh, dub Author & Punisher’s music “mechadoom.” Listen at your own peril, mortals!”
Check it out here.
“Terrorbird” comes off this nightmarish electronic/doom mindfuck’s debut release for Seventh Rule Recordings. Entitled Ursus Americanus, the record is due out as digipack CD on April 24, 2012, and will be unleashed upon the public via a West Coast tour (dates to be announced soon!).
AUTHOR & PUNISHER can be described most succinctly as “industrial doom,” but of course, is much than a mere genre tag. This one-man project utilizes primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers, devices that draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics and focus upon the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines are designed to require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding doom influenced sounds that are created – “Like Godfleshmeets The Bug meets Flying Lotus,” according to MSN Metal’s Adrien Begrand.
AUTHOR & PUNISHER has performed with and shown these machines extensively at festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad, and has more live actions planned for 2012.
