A mostly glitchy, heavy, German/English, pan-electronic stompfest.

Ass Life (2009)

An eclectic mix, ranging from industrial to polka to noise to electronic jazz to baroque-style organ music. 160kbps...some tracks noticably lose fidelity at this compression. :( Contact the artist for a full quality CD. Cover art by Slim Fadey.

Traumaturge (2010)

Industrial grind metal / electropunk / eastern glitch fugue / dance / ambient dub step / industrial / eastern-baroque / EBM / minimalist dub / world fusion / ambient / new age / 80's.

Paper Tiger (2017)

So my laptop broke, and I did this album starting on February 14th, with a sum total of about 4 days of work. I had access to none of my software synthesizers or sample libraries, so I had to go back to using my ye olde schoole hardware, which was a pain, so most of this album is done with traditional instruments. I also misspelled Ouroboros for some reason, so the vocals are incorrect for that particular word. Anyway, this album is really more "demo quality" for that reason, and once I can resurrect my laptop, I hope I might be able to improve some of it by having the tools I'm familiar with (like all of my drum samples...). Red Right Hand by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Summer of Hate by Chemlab A More Perfect Union based on works by Francis Scott Key
