KEVIN MARTIN (the bug ) MEGAPOST
so theres this guy most of you probably know as superstar dubstep producer The Bug. his name's Kevin Martin. he has a goatee in a lot of his promo pics (see fig. 1). it seems like a lot of ppl dont realize that he's been very prolific through the 90s and early 00s in genres other than (and many that influenced) dubstep. so i decided i'd share some of his other projects w/ yall.
this project has a name that has aged very poorly but it's still cool! people describe it as industrial hip-hop but i think that applies mostly to just the earlier albums which had a very tense, industrial atmosphere. this album, Brotherhood of the Bomb, has really fuckin heavy bass and features collaborators such as Justin Broadrick of Godflesh and Jesu, Vast Aire, and the dudes from Dälek.
 Brotherhood of the Bomb
sick free-jazz-influenced doomy industrial metal. with justin broadrick on guitar and john zorn doin his shit. two albums here: 1992's "Possession", and 1994's "The Anatomy of Addiction". Possession is a lot more droning and sparse, while the tracks on Anatomy of Addiction feel more like songs. if you have even a passing interest in doom metal or jazz metal or heavy industrial shit like Swans, check this out.
 The Anatomy of Addiction
ice is like the halfway point between GOD and Techno Animal. lots of hip-hop and dub influence, but with the whole industrial noise shit and heavy sludgy guitars. another very cool project, and once again justin broadrick is a collaborator.
1991 - Under the Skin
