Theatre Of Ice - 3 tapes

Three early cassettes from Theatre Of Ice. Although what came after has a more 'typical' gothic rock sound, these three tapes are much more on the experimental side. Heavy Chrome-damage abounds, always a good thing.

"Theatre of Ice were an early Deathrock (Gothic rock) band that formed in the Nevada desert in December 1978. Initially formed to record a soundtrack for a horror movie, the members instead evolved into what some claim was the first Deathrock band. Owing more initially to experimental groups such as Throbbing Gristle, Suicide and Chrome, the band also cited bands as diverse as Iron Butterfly, Blue Öyster Cult, The Moody Blues and Roxy Music as major influences. Theatre of Ice brought a modern approach to gothic-horror themes by tackling the idea of an underground spook show in the contemporary world."
