Author & Punisher Signs With Seventh Rule For Release Of New Album "Ursus Americanus"

Seventh Rule has issued the following announcement about signing a deal with Author & Punisher:

"Seventh Rule Recordings is proud to announce the latest signing to their eclectic roster, San Diego's AUTHOR & PUNISHER. Iconoclastic in the truest sense of the word, Tristan Shone, the sole propagator behind this haunting, claustrophobic cacophony inverts the tenets of doom metal completely, relying on cold steel and soulless machinery to bring despondency to life. His new record, entitled 'Ursus Americanus', will be his first release on Seventh Rule, and is due out as digipack CD and other digital formats on April 24, 2012.

"AUTHOR & PUNISHER can be described most succinctly as 'industrial doom,' but of course, is much than a mere genre tag. This one-man project utilizes primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers, devices that draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics and focus upon 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 - 'Like Godflesh meets The Bug meets Flying Lotus,' according to MSN Metal's Adrien Begrand.

"AUTHOR & PUNISHER has performed with and shown these machines extensively at festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad, and has more live actions planned for 2012."
