Definitive recording from this intense and experimentally-inclined rock quartet that endured in Christchurch, New Zealand from 1994 to 1997. Combines electronic drones and rhythms, live and sampled acoustic textures (metal bashing!) with machines, dodgy electronics and dirge guitar. Stylistically schizophrenic, Screaming Cage's split personality encompasses both sophomoric, over-the-top industrial rock and compositions of more measured, mesmerising ambience. For related projects on Bandcamp, see MiG-21, zerO and Oh Mental Hospitals.
released September 1, 1997
