Getting praise from legendary artists and groups like Merzbow, Whitehouse, and The Haters, after several vinyl singles, split releases, and appearances on compilations, their debut CD "All the Power" was released on California's Vinyl Communications label. They have since put out three other discs, including one on the popular Ground Fault Recordings label. A special thing about this band is that they use in their music power tools, machinery and weapons: real sounds that are later resampled, looped, processed and distorted with the use of an analog synth. It is impossible to guess what the group will do live.
Past performances have generally used power tools such as sanders and grinders, but have also often included fire and large pieces of wood and metal. According to both members of the band, Lockweld have split as of mid-2008. Read more on Last.fm.
