Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with a sense of focus and determination uncharacteristic in a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. His presentation of sonic structures is similar to the way a writer depicts a story, an allegory seems to arise, which uses confusion as a symbol for the imaginative process of total sound purity; aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listeners imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music.
Subtle and patient compositions rely on long, dense layers of droning sounds, while abrasive pieces rely on sounds amplified and processed to extreme levels, pushing the full spectrum of frequencies to the most threshold of limits. Other explorations are intense percussion work that resonates primal chaos displayed gracefully without ever being just "noise".
The video is the Dissonanze 2006 Live Set music by Zbigniew Karkowski & Daniel Menche with live visual art by Philipp Geist.

Black Boned Angel are Campbell Kneale (Birchville Cat Motel, Our Love Will Destroy The World, Ming, With Throats As Fine As Needles, etc) and Antony Milton (Mrtyu, With Throats As Fine As Needles, The Stumps, etc) and James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians and The Stumps). To say this is doom metal or black metal is lazy lazy lazy...it's all about the drone. Ecstatic!
I've included "You Should Have Slain Me" because it appears all over the place as BBA. It's not. It is Campbell Kneale tho'. Taken from the name of a Hammers Of Misfortune track...it takes the riff on a wild loop ride...drops in the drums and leaves...brilliant!
