What started out as the design and build of his Master’s thesis at the University of California, San Diego, the DRONE MACHINES soon become the subject matter of Tristan Shone’s third album.
For those unaware, AUTHOR & PUNISHER is an industrial doom metal, one man band utilizing primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers. The devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics, focusing on the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines are designed to require significant force from the performer, aligning he or she with the plodding doom influenced sounds that are created.
“DRONE MACHINES” is the heaviest of the A&P albums and also the longest at around 70 minutes.
This will be the first time “Drone Machines” is available on vinyl, now released in a beautiful 2xLP Gatefold package.
Equally informed by industrial, noise, ambient, punk and doom…Both conceptually and execution-wise - Decibel Magazine
