Abstract (Document Summary)

Chicago-based industrial quintet Stabbing Westward is gearing up for the Feb. 15 release of its "UNGOD" Columbia records debut, which will be accompanied by a U.S. tour.

Stabbing Westward was formed in 1985 by Western Illinois University students Chris Hall (vocals) and Walter Flakus (keyboards-percussion). Guitarist Stuart Zechman, bassist Jim Sellers and former Spies Who Surf drummer David Suycott fill out the Stabbing Westward lineup. Hall previously sat in as percussionist for Die Warzau; Zechman has worked with Ministry's Paul Barker.

"UNGOD"-a dark blast of atmospheric, percussive, metal guitar-reinforced industrial rock-was recorded in England and produced by John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Love and Rockets). The production combines mechanistic, electronically synthesized chord changes and tribal rhythms. Occasional ethno-percussive touches humanize the band's apocalyptic message and give it an organic texture.
