The albums will change the sound slightly to include the unique themes of each tribe. History of the producer : The roots of death-robot music can be traced back to when I started with 90's metal bands like Will Haven, Meshuggah (which got me obsessed with Polymetric stuff) as well as especially older Hip-Hop groups like Public Enemy and newer ones like Dalek, Techno Animal and Cannibal OX. Somewhere along the line I got bored of guitars but wanted something structurally and aggressively similar to those bands I enjoyed, then some college friends sucked me back into the warhammer 40k hobby and I became obsessed with those evil space robots and bought a load. I loved the imagery, depth and complexity to the their mythology so much it became my central motivation to make music. I tended to try and use similar musical structures to Will Haven and the 'Necron' influence made me want to create it as a soundtrack for these rusted metallic terrors which is how I came up with that trademark vocal effect that I never ever get bored of which you can hear in all Death-Robot projects.
I had the idea for the voice in my head for years but it took 4 years to really get it to how I wanted. I like the idea of using synths as guitar-equivilents by trying to create textured and heavy sounds from them too but most bands tend to either use guitars with dance/techno or add samples/synths to metal so there that too was another motivation to create this style to fill in that musical-hole that I had yearned for, for so many years. Now in 2007 I present my latest and new main project Carnivore Adaption where I hope to exlore tribal influences and more horror themed sci-fi concepts. Read more on Last.fm.
