Crash-Scan

Bio

Breaking into the local music scene in September of 2009 with debut album Catalyst, post-industrial metal band Crash-Scan has been a fixture in Wellington, as well as a welcome visitor to Auckland and other NZ towns and cities, for almost five years. Frontman Ron Nobbs, with longtime collaborators Bryan Tabuteau on synths, Vivian Stewart on guitar, and new band member Ezekiel Clark on bass, have moulded Crash-Scan into a solid act, both live and on record, with the assistance of a plethora of session musicians, fellow artists, and supportive friends.

Having made a name for themselves as entertaining and proficient performers pushing a highly individual sound, the band has taken the next step and released a follow-up to Catalyst, the punishing Repeat Until False. While Catalyst featured stompingly accessible songs to headbang to, Repeat Until False takes a more measured and layered approach, the hydraulic-powered metallic butterfly to Catalyst's vicious caterpillar. The album feels more mature, with noticeable depth backing up its driving climaxes. With atmosphere to pull you in and churning sonic assaults to beat you into submission, Crash-Scan have proven that they're here to stay, and are going to make a lot of noise while they're at it.

With two albums to choose from, a pair of music videos (including one for new single Choke by Grimoire Productions), and numerous live gigs under their belt, Crash-Scan are set to drive their brutal blend of grinding auditory bedlam into the ear canals of anyone and everyone in earshot. Released both as a digital download or in a very limited edition leather embossed USB drive (only 50 copies!) containing a treasure-trove of goodies including the new album, a PDF booklet, two music videos including the brand new Choke, as well as remixes, karaoke & bonus tracks in a laser-engraved aluminium presentation case, Repeat Until False's release has something for long-term fans as well as those just being introduced to Crash-Scan's distinctive sound.
