Author & Punisher: Women & Children
One-man industrial doom outfit drops new album, supports Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down) on U.S. tour.
As visually provocative and he is sonically crushing, Tristan Shone designs open-source kinetic drone and dub machines to channel ecstatic, unbelievably heavy noisescapes as one-man industrial doom band Author & Punisher.
“Doom metal is combining a feeling of devastation with a moment of emotional inspiration,” Shone told the Reader last November.
“It’s very positive. Either way, you give yourself to this overwhelming sound.”
Shone’s latest submission to sound dropped two days ago in the form of a 7-track LP titled Women & Children.
Author & Punisher will be opening for Phil Anselmo's (of Pantera and Down) solo outfit Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals on their debut U.S. tour this fall.
