"For over 10 years, Alex and Adam of Chicago's Kill Memory Crash have developed their own blend of dark electronic music without major release. Starting their musical career in Detroit, the group began performing at raves and warehouse parties in the mid-to-late 90's, slowly translating their leftfield influences into a new, cryptic language. Standing on the dividing lines between techno and other musics forced the duo to develop their own style, and early works resembled dark chasms of industrial noise. Their indifference to the popular styles of the day led them into an almost self-imposed exile from the music business and only extremely limited vinyl pressings ever surfaced. Alex and Adam have honed their music to its current state, a sinister blend of industrial, ambient and IDM, working away at the boundaries that held them as outsiders until now. When the Blood Turns Black is a bold first look at a group who blend a complex production style with a searing early electronic attitude. The result is a relentless debut of IDM-infused Industrial and twisted machine-funk. Kill Memory Crash has a sound that calls upon their heroes (Ministry, Coil, etc.), but that is made completely their own in the process. Bone-hard and Electrified, this is the sound of the machines gone bad."
