    It was created under the cloak of nocturnal snow in the far northest reaches of financial-fanstasy island, a concept borne of Frost and weapons manufacturer, war monger and evil genius Sruli Recht, captured by the all-seeing-eye of Bjarni Gríms and forged in the fires of hell by Rebeca Mendéz… BY THE THROAT.

Ben Frost represents one of today’s new breed of composers who conjures an aural broth that inhabits an amorphous cross-section of genres. It's impossible to truly classify where he is coming from musically and to simply label him an experimental electronic musician brings no justice whatsoever. His recent performance at Sonar was heralded by Resident Advisor as being "awe inspiring...the most visceral show of the festival".

The music Ben Frost is about contrast; influenced as much by Classical Minimalism as by Punk Rock and Metal, Frost's throbbing guitar-based textures emerge from nothing and slowly coalesce into huge, forbidding forms that often eschew conventional structures in favor of the inevitable unfoldings of vast mechanical systems.

Three years from the release of his acclaimed Theory of Machines, Frost has returned with his second full-length for Bedroom Community, 'BY THE THROAT'. Where 'Theory of Machines' came sterilized in fluorescent light, 'BY THE THROAT' is blood red and cloaked in shadow.


released November 9, 2009

Produced in Iceland by Ben Frost and Valgeir Sigurðsson, 'BY THE THROAT' also features performances by Amiina, The Arcade Fire's Jeremy Gara, Swedish metal outfit Crowpath and composer Nico Muhly.
