BLOOD RHYTHMS is ARVO (ZYLO)'s industrial noise project, often as a collaborative umbrella, but not always. He has been active since 2000 and currently likes to use layers of similar sources such as trumpets or power tools on sheet metal, or do raw, feedback laden performances with amplified objects and primal screams and lyrics about body politics and the alchemy of grief. In 1985 Mitch Enderle, who'd previously collaborated with DAN BURKE in PSYCHOTIC DUB and ILLUSION OF SAFETY, released a cassette on Complacency called DEAD TECH. This work was Industrial music described as "noise like it used to be," featuring distorted drum machine, loops, samples, synth, guitar, and vocals very similar to early SPK, Nocturnal Emission, and Test Department. Longtime collaborators Mitch and Dan will be recreating some of this material for only the second time ever for this performance at Empty Bottle. DEATH FACTORY, aka MICHAEL KRAUSE’s returns with their old school industrial noise atmospherics. His ”noisescapes” run the gamut from heavy electronics to death industrial, paying tribute to bands from THROBBING GRISTLE to MERZBOW, cult movies and “weird sounds from factories in the Lakeview, IL neighborhood.” Opening the show is GRAVEFORM, an industrial/power electronics project based in Chicago that released a live split tape with GAS MASK HORSE back in 2012. GRAVEFORM makes its Empty Bottle debut tonight and will bring the darkness to your soul at the strike of 9pm.
