Rorschach Test

Rorschach Test was founded by vocalist James Baker in Denver in 1990, but the band accelerated when he moved to Seattle and hooked up with programmer/keyboardist Troee Kerr. The two shared common bonds, one of them being a general distaste for religious dogma (Baker was thrown out of church for heresy, while Kerr was the son of a minister), and from these bonds the band grew, eventually releasing an independent album (The Eleventh) and attracting the attention of noted producer Neil Kernon, who worked with the band on their latter two releases Unclean and Peace Minus One. Musically the band is in the techno/industrial camp, though they aren't as cold as some such bands, with a style somewhat akin to a less psychedelic White Zombie. After an extended break from action, Baker has put a new version of the band together, as shown below.
