Anatomy of Habit
With a mere five shows under their collective belt, Anatomy of Habit worked on their first recording throughout the month of October and have continued the process in November. After their initial live outings, people mentioned diverse groups, including Joy Division, Swans, Einsturzende Neubauten, Unsane, Bauhaus, My Bloody Valentine, Black Sabbath, The Cure, Jesu, and Death in June, when attempting to describe the band. Part post-punk, part death-rock, part early-industrial, part noise-rock, part shoegazer, and part full-on doom-metal, this list of bands at least begins to describe where the powerful five-piece group might be coming from. Anatomy of Habit formed in October 2008, following the dissolution of the group Animal Law. Blake Edwards (metal percussion), Dylan Posa (drums), and Mark Solotroff (vocals) [all formerly of Animal Law] joined forces with Kenny Rasmussen (bass) and Greg Ratajczak (guitar) — the duo originally slated to engineer and produce Animal Law's abandoned debut album. The band plans to release their first mini-LP in early-2010, while continuing to hone their live sound on a steady basis.
