Dead Kid Harvester is a solo avant-garde/experimental artist with a complete disregard for any form of music convention such as harmony or tempo. The primary instruments used are vocals and kitchen utensils. Lyrics are written without any consideration for rhythm or beat. Dead Kid Harvester takes influences ranging from doom metal to gothic industrial and old school punk, and polarizes them into an industrial cacophony of noise. Recorded samples and bits and pieces are combined haphazardly into songs with the use of effects such as pitch changes, pitch bends, time stretches, and so on.
Dead Kid Harvester was formed in the Wellington region of New Zealand in December 2000, later moving to Auckland. The name Dead Kid Harvester is a combination of two nicknames acquired at high school, and is no less off-putting than the music itself. The preferred lyrical themes are horror, psychopathy, and philosophy. The long-term plan is to complete the debut album, The First Sign Of Madness.
Dead Kid Harvester particularly enjoys experimenting with discord between left and right channels.
