A one man operation sounding like a full philharmonic for the end of days; that’s how I would describe the work of artist Tristan Shone better know as Author and Punisher. Armed with an arsenal of self made custom analog machines, he creates a unique and visceral sound that hits you the your gut.
His new album, BEASTLAND (Relapse Records) explores a more melodic vocal approach mixed with gnarly beats and distorted synths. Author and Punisher lives at the junction of ingenious engineering, art and music; bringing a fresh and personal perspective into the industrial doom genera, he commands the stage while crushing emotion out of his machines.
