Artoffact Records is proud to announce the reissue of a significant portion of the Controlled Bleeding catalogue.
Originally released on the short-lived Psychout Productions out of Sweden in February of 1985, Knees and Bones was Controlled Bleeding's first vinyl album and was a continuation of the brutal electronics and industrial noise of the first tape releases. In many ways, this album is the definitive industrial record of the period, featuring screeching metal, distorted power electronics, Paul Lemos' guttural, animal-like screaming, and a healthy dose of feedback.
The original Swedish release was a single vinyl with two long tracks of approximately 23 minutes each, one on each side. The Artoffact Records reissue expands Knees and Bones to a double-LP, including a full LP's worth of bonus material, notably the amazing Swallowing Scrap Metal Pt. 5½, which appeared as the final track of the Knees and Bones CD, another hopelessly out of print Controlled Bleeding artifact.
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 really sounds like aliens landing. can't believe this was made in 1983. a good release with varying themes. kickass songs and creepy tracks. love it all. The digipack is nicely arranged, i love the presentation and the silver and blue ballpoint pen style. it's worth it for the photos alone pookaball
