Red Harvest  


One of the standouts in the industrial metal scene, Norway's Red Harvest officially formed in 1989 following the meeting up of founders Jim Bergsten and Thomas Brandt two years previous. According to one of their press releases from awhile ago, their style is "Apocalyptic Industrial Cyber Metal", and that's actually not a bad starting point for describing their sound. They are firmly in the industrial metal camp, with processed vocals, various sampled effects, and dissonant yet very heavy guitars, creating a cold, stark atmosphere that doesn't lapse into one-dimensionality like some industrial bands. Red Harvest is the BNR favorite of all bands operating under the industrial metal banner, with Cold Dark Matter and Sick Transit Gloria Mundi in particular being highly recommended. They concluded a twenty-year run in May 2010 with the annoucement of their breakup.
