The re-issue of the first full length from the premiere industrial drum combo in the US. Savage Aural Hotbed takes the ancient art of Japanese taiko drumming to a different level using metal barrels, circular saws , sheet metal and carbide sticks. They form a flesh machine, pounding out hypnotic rhythms that will comfort and cajole you... industrial sensibilities curl up nicely with ancient rhythms that you can dance and trance to.

With live shows that are beyond memorable, encompassing everything from encasing the stage in Styrofoam, illuminated suits, and sparks, lots of sparks. Frequent performers on dance stages, they have accompanied The Flying Foot Forum, and Ballet of the Dolls. Don't be fooled into thinking that this is just smart arty stuff, it is that , but it is also raw, visceral and flesh searing in it's intensity. The album is chock full of audio delights that will sting and surprise you. Your grandchildren's grandchildren will be listening to this one.

"What distinguishes SAH from groups and individuals like EinstĚrzende Neubauten, Z'ev and Mezzerbrow, is the apparent lack of a political agenda and the general absence of negative emotion... the Results are impressive and this CD is a must for anyone with rhythmic impulses and a sense of adventure"- Bill Tilland Option Magazine

The Album was produced in part by Jim Marcus of Die Warsau fame.
