Since the age of 12 i’ve been fascinated by Horror films though it was not until I started making music/sound art that I realised why.

Lloyd Barrett has spent the last 5 years working on a suitable sound for this project – with the only official release being a “cover” of the Coil track “Spastiche” on the Balance tribute album “the loneliest link in a very strange chain”.

Lloyd’s guitar “gods” include Justin Broadrick, Snakefinger, Sunn O))), James Plotkin and Birchville Cat Motel.
