Chapter 196: My Face Would Crack

Industrial & noise rock

In the mid 90s, just as electronic dance music was cusping but before hard rock fell into decline, there was a brief, glorious convergence where these orbiting moons fed off each other’s chaotic energy. The resulting lunar debris varies in intensity, from the pumping rusty-nail grooves of Ministry and Nine Inch Nails to the spastic cyclones of Alec Empire and Aphex Twin at his heaviest. Caught in this supernova are circuit-breaking trolls past and future, the industrial pioneers in Throbbing Gristle and the antagonistic noise mavens of Death Grips.
