Following 2016’s much-lauded Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps, Controlled Bleeding returns with Carving Songs, a massive remix album totalling 20 tracks, including a 21st track, TROD, a brand new Controlled Bleeding composition which founder Paul Lemos referred to as “a really a major piece for us… a VERY dark song.”
The hand-picked cast of remixers includes Japanese noise-guru Merzbow, Justin K. Broadrick from industrial-metal act Godflesh (not to mention Jesu), as well as Monolake, Crowhurst, Ramleh, Child Bite, and many others. Even notorious experimental guitarist (and current Lydia Lunch Retrovirus member) Weasel Walter makes an appearance.
The remixes range from straight up power noise, to post-black metal, to industrial-influenced beats, and are as varied as Controlled Bleeding itself, a project known for being impossible to classify. An essential release in the long, storied history of one of America’s foremost experimenters.

NU was a project by Bill Leeb of FLA & Marc Verhaeghen of The Klinik. Hm, is this true? No, because only the first two releases were produced by these giants of EBM music. All later releases were "only" produced by Bill. Is this important? Yes, it is! The first two releases are masterpieces of EBM music with lots of atmospheric elements. With the third album things changed, because the following sounds more an FLA spin-off. Are they bad? No, but the special "feeling" of the first two is gone. Blinky Blinky Computerband
This album should be ranked very high in ranks of latest industrial albums, because it just crushes the competition. THIS is how it's done people. Menacing vocals, pounding drums and haunting electronics have no mercy on your ears and leave you with not one second of peace. Play this loud and do people around you a service.
