Adam Badlotto Hard to pick a favorite on this album. The opening riff in Flesh Ants kills it. I imagine the most badass wrestler making his entrance when I hear this song. Favorite track: Flesh Ants.

Matt Nadareski This is the album that got me into AP. It was a unique sound that I didn't know I was missing in my life. Favorite track: Lonely.
FLESH MECHANIC Author & Punisher is the genius of our times when it comes to music. Innovative, unique, always pushing boundaries of sound and instruments themselves. Ursus Americanus was the first time I heard his stuff, and over the several years that passed since then, it's still up there reigning over everyone else. Terrorbird and Set Flames are absolute classics from this guy's catalogue, so definitely check those out first. I really hope more and more people will appreciate how insanely talented A&P is. Favorite track: Terrorbird.

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 robotic, 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 influence sounds that are created.

Author & Punisher has performed and shown these machines in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad extensively. His third full-length record, focuses primarily on the newer Dub Machines entitled Ursus Americanus and was his first release on Seventh Rule Records.
