Author & Punisher manufactures mechanical mayhem at the Earl
Tristan Shone's mechanical engineering background makes for truly industrial musical project.
? The term "industrial" has been applied to various bands over the years, but Author & Punisher manufactures truly mechanically-driven music. Applying his background in mechanical engineering, Tristan Shone creates doom-laden dirge metal with custom-made machines rather than traditional instruments. This caught the attention of Pantera's Phil Anselmo, who signed A&P to Housecore Records, and produced his recently released Melk En Honing. Tonight (Sun., Nov. 8, )Shone shakes the Earl to its foundation with Portland's Muscle and Marrow and Atlanta's Dead Register.
