An uncomfortably accurate reflection of a dying world, PATHOGENS exists solely to serve as an unflinching reminder of the negative influences of the human species inhabiting this planet.

PATHOGENS is A. D. Carter using manipulated samples, distorted synth, found objects and contact mic recordings, electronic drums and percussion, electric guitar, voice, and throat.

Taking early Swans influences to an even more bleak and excruciating extremes, A. D. Carter blends synth distortion, primal mechanical rhythms, profoundly disturbing samples, and nightmarish agonized vocalizations to create death industrial doom akin to its influences, yet unique and singular.

In the future, there will be near silence in the air, silence that is the product of a world mostly void of life. Environmental toxicity, escalating conflict, rampant consumption, and therefore destruction, humanity stands no chance of surviving the most invasive species of all; themselves. Ultimately, the cries of new life become drowned out by the real-world chaos, consumption, and destruction under the reigning power of our own death machines.
“Listening feels somewhat like what gradually falling through increasingly suffocating quicksand must be like — there’s no breathing room, no empty space, just the devilishly snaking, crushing tidal waves of this brutal sound…” — Captured Howls
