☼ Controlled Bleeding + Maybe Mental - Halved LP / Cloama - Neuroscan Organization LP [April 2008 re-post]

When I put 2 or more releases together that have no direct relation to each other, it's just because I like to............ annoy you! aaarrgghhh ;) Enjoy!

☼ Controlled Bleeding / Maybe Mental - Halved LP

Controlled Bleeding were performing 'industrial' music long before the term became fashionable. During their formative years, the band combined the literal assault of their listeners with bruising, massive layers of screaming feedback and pure power electonics with a lighter, classically ambient softness. Throughout their mid-80's Wax Trax! work and most notably on their first Third Mind release, Controlled Bleeding became interested in a more melodic song form, while retaining their signature aggressive punch and dignified gentility.
Maybe Mental are a largely-forgotten post-industrial act from the late '80s. Likely best-known for their split 1986 LP with Controlled Bleeding, Maybe Mental were formed in Arizona in 1982 by David Oliphant. The group mined the atmospheric industrial arena as well or better than most of their underground peers. The group's interest in rich multi-cultural instrumentation and ritual textures would later play a key role in the band's transition to Life Garden.

Just so you know--this rip of Halved is at the wrong speed (45 instead of 33 1/3).

Thanks for posting so much great stuff, otherwise!
