|The term super group often gets kicked around in the industrial genre, and while bands like Pigface, Revolting Cocks and the live version of Ministry have surely put that to the test, it's even harder for new artists to emerge with a solid line up that gets peoples attention. Welcome Microwaved and Gabe Wilkinson to the fold. For those of you that don't know Gabe has been working in the industrial music field since the early 90's. First as a vocalist and now as a multi-instrumentalist and song writer. Having just released his long in production first E.P. on Bandcamp for the "pay what you'd like" model, Microwaved has set about making his next record something extremely special.
The full line up for the new record is set and is finally ready to be unleashed on to the public. Here is how it breaks down.
Nicolas Whitfield of 9th Evolution, Steve Christie of Deadliner, SiNDADDY, Darrin C. Huss of Psyche, Kerry Peterson of Stiff Valentine (and wife of Front Line Assembly member Chris Peterson), Davoramma Six of Society Burning, Alexis Doddato of Smakdab, Dizzy Drastik of The Rejects/Murderdolls/The Drastiks, Aeon Grey, Aaron K9 Wherry of A+9 Records, James DeBower of Mekanikal Soul, Sean "Satyr" Tracy of PRODUKT, Jason Chipman ex-Skrew, Martyr Uzumaki of dreDDup, Brandon S. Chase of SuturSelf, James Craw and Tyler Crew.
The album will bridge many different styles in the electronic world joining the gaps between rock, metal, industrial, hip hop, ebm and goth with heavy doses of soundtrack elements. The album is being mixed and co-produced by none other than Steven Siebold of Hate Dept/Pigface and mastered at Slaughter House Studios by Mark Alan Miller of Out Out. Also Gabe has been keeping a blog on his Microwaved Facebook page that documents the writing process of the album and how things are coming together. The ups, the downs and the uglies.
