The Death Sound was formed because of the two members' enjoyment of and fascination with electronic music and the desire to break the trends in the local scene of the same old metal/hardcore/punk/emo sound that is desperately trying to sound so different, but is still essentially all the same thing. We want to do something that, while not groundbreaking (since it is a genre that flourished thirty years ago), will at least be something the likes of which has not been seen in our local venues before. We hope that for those of you who are fans of true Industrial sound, but have never been able to see a performance piece, you will be able to forgive our roughness around the edges and appreciate what we are aiming for. In the spirit of the very first Industrial act, Throbbing Gristle, we will try to maintain a complete catalog of our live recordings. Therefore, if you are at our first show, and did not hate us, you will be able to purchase (or receive as a gift, depending on how the band finances are at the moment) a low-fi recording of the previous live performance.
Throbbing Gristle, Numb, OLoF Nine, Tarsus, Moby, Faith No More, Chris Carter, ELP, Dick Hyman, Sex on Saturday, Cabaret Voltaire, Chrome, Faust, Boris, Merzbow, Societas d'Arte Sacra, Finger Painted Death, Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows, Frank Zappa, 50 Foot Hose, Hawkwind, Joy Division, the Birthday Party, Sham 69, Not From This World
