Ones de Crom #7

Kevin Drumm

February 25, 2009
The fascination for both electro-acoustic and black-metal and the repetitive drones have made of this musician from Chicago one of the referents of the electronic experimentation of manipulation of extreme guitar sounds. This is demonstrated by the review of his career since "Comedy" (1996), "Kevin Drumm" (1997) or "Second" (1999) in addition to the numerous contributions to collective projects such as the 1998 session with Dafeldecker, Kurzmann and Fenneszthe free-jazz of Territory Band 2 to "Atlas" (2002) or the albums signed with Ralf Wehowsky "Cases" (2001) or with the Japanese guitarist Taku Sugimoto "Den" (2000). Also in solo we feel the cassette "KD" (2001), the intense and outstanding "Sheer Hellish Miasma" (2002) where he combined black-metal and electronic soroll and "Land Of Lurches" (2003) where he continued with sorollous electronics. From the released in the last years we feel the direct to Moscow "Pure" (2006) and the double ambient CD "Imperial Distortion" (2008).
