Genghis Tron is a three-piece band based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They play some sort of a mixture of grindcore and electronics, a mixture done before but is rarely done good (The Locust, Cutting Pink with Knives).
Lacking both a drummer and a bassist, the band utilizes computer-based drum machines such as FL Studio and Ableton Live as well as multiple synthesizers to execute their distinct sound.
"Dead Mountain Mouth", the band's first full-length, was produced by the almighty Kurt Ballou (Converge) and released by Crucial Blast Records in 2005. The newer material was a more well-blended and demented attack, focusing less on the cut-and-paste mayhem of the early songs and instead honing in on flow, song structure, and originality.
Genghis Tron takes you on a ride full of harmonic madness and chaotic beauty. recommended for the open-minded.
they also had a new cd called Board Up the House out last month through Relapse Records, I don't like it as much, but maybe you will.
oh, and did I mention they don't have a drummer?
