Proceeds of this release will be divided between traveling bands, to offset traveling expenses. Also, in the coming weeks, presale paper tickets will be made available. The tickets themselves will be collectors items, and will be hand numbered 1-100, which is the size capacity of the venue. All bands and event workers will be issued tickets, so that will leave around 75-80 available, first come, first served. Any unsold tickets will be available at the door, but it recommended to purchase in advanced. Especially those coming to Cleveland from other areas. All tickets purchased will be mailed to your home. More info coming soon. We are very excited to present this monumental gathering!

THEOLOGIAN [NY]
(Annihilvs Power Electronix, Malignant Records)
http://www.wehavealwaysbeenhere.com/theologian
Now entering the tenth year since its inception, Theologian is the solo industrial project of Lee M. Bartow (AKA "Leech", AKA "Theologian Prime"). He has built obsessive, sonically and emotionally brutal soundscapes out of both blasts of rumbling blackened synthcrush met with washes of haunting electronic melodies. Layered vocals loop, echo and crash into themselves in endless waves of pain and despair that at times give way to a strange beauty. Theologian has released albums via Crucial Blast, Battleground Records, Cipher Productions, Handmade Birds, Danvers State Recordings, and more.
Theologian has collaborated and performed with a multitude of artists from around the world. For DARKNESS DESCENDS, Bartow will be joined by Andy Grant (THE VOMIT ARSONIST), Derek Rush (DREAM INTO DUST), and Stephen Petrus (MURDEROUS VISION) as a four-piece.

THE VOMIT ARSONIST [RI]
(Malignant Records, Danvers State Recordings)
https://thevomitarsonist.bandcamp.com/
When one looks at US death industrial, one of the top acts is that of Andrew Grant. Since 2004, his project has evolved into a major force, channeling aggression, negativity, and spite, and molding it into a focused, pinpoint display of barely restrained power and purely dark emotion.

STEEL HOOK PROSTHESES [TX]
(Malignant Records, Obfuscated Records)
http://steelhookprostheses.blogspot.com
15 years in and with 9 full length releases under their belt, it’s safe to say that the terminally morbid, Dallas based duo are the undisputed flag bearers for American death industrial. Heavily polluted and blackened drones, decrepit, percolating frequency beds, and acid dripping, highly processed vocals.

GNAWED [MN]
(Malignant Records, Maniacal Hatred)
https://gnawed.bandcamp.com/
Grant Richardson creates thick layers of synths and harsh noise, topped off by screaming livid, disorienting vocals, creating a terri
fying mixture of death industrial and power electronics. Several strong releases since 2009.

COMPACTOR [NY]
(Oppressive Resistance Recordings, Jouissance Du Rien)
http://www.wastemgt.info
An interconnected set of mostly obsolete machinery that is manipulated by an anonymous figure known as The Worker under orders from a faceless corporation. Industrial, noise, and other related sounds from the machinery form a soundtrack to the urban wasteland. Audio Work Documents have been licensed to Ohm Resistance, Low Noise Productions, Industrial Strength Records, Annihilvs Power Electronix, and others since 2011.

VITRIOL GAUGE [MI]
(Fall Of Nature, Black Ring Rituals)
https://vitriolgauge.bandcamp.com
The solo project of Anthony S. Kuchta III (operating since 2012), also recent vocalist of United Front. Based on heavy and slow bass driven layers which are mixed with muted minor keyed synth loops, on occasion pushing towards harder power electronics intensity. Vocals are either a blurred mass of distortion or otherwise presented in a drawling spoken chant.

SHOCK FRONTIER [PA]
(Malignant Records)
https://www.facebook.com/ShockFrontier/
The duo of Robert Kozletsky (Apócrýphos) and Kyle Carney carves out a sound residing somewhere between the “new wave” of American power electronics and the classic sound of Cold Meat Industry. They create a world enveloped in a perpetual haze of post-apocalyptic soot and radioactive ash, where deadening percussion, reverberating factory drones, samples, and atmospheric washes of hostile electronics churn and whir into a polluted, endless expanse.

ABJECTION RITUAL [PA]
(Malignant Records)
https://abjectionritual.bandcamp.com/
Post-apocalyptic electronics, impenetrably dark and filled with oppressive dread. Grim constructions that alternate between being hyper-violent and explosive to more bleak arrangements of nauseating electronics and radioactive waste, with a vocal delivery that ramps up to impossible levels of intensity.

CUNTING DAUGHTERS [OH]
https://cuntingdaughters.bandcamp.com
Formed nearly ten years ago, Cunting Daughters is the NE Ohio duo of Rebecca Potter and Pauline Lombardo. They use a variety of objects and instruments, traditional and home built, to evoke a dark and often unsettling soundscape.

MURDEROUS VISION [OH]
(Live Bait Recording Foundation, Annihilvs Power Electronix)
http://murderousvision1.bandcamp.com
The solo project of Stephen Petrus. Murderous Vision’s style ranges from dark ambient to death industrial to martial industrial and neoclassical music. Murderous Vision has released close to a dozen albums and has been featured on several compilations and has had releases done on several industrial and ambient labels, most notably Petrus’ label Live Bait Recording Foundation.

The annoying thing with the bandcamp app is that it only gives you track names for currently playing. This is fine for artist albums, but for compilations it is very annoying not having the artist name on hand.

A great compilation though, heavy and dark and actually quite coherent throughout, you could be forgiven for mistaking it as an artist album
