metallic tongue is a barrage of electro-ambient feedback, riding on the back of visceral driving bass, drums and electronic percussion. There is no existing genre to sum up this EP, not that it is in any way outside the realm of modern music, in fact the songs at their core are quite melodic and accessible, but the recordings are channeled thru theMDR's surreal overdrive filter and become something new and unpredictable without sacrificing the immediacy of real, live human performances.
Moments on the EP borrow inspiration from the dense tapestries woven by My Bloody Valentine, as well as Brian Eno, put into a sonic blender with the danger of Bowie's Scary Monsters and the raw energy of Janes Addiction. Enter the driving electro clash programming and the gothic piano on "Destroyer." Enter the diabolical guitar that kicks off "Dark Star" and the pleading bipolar vocals on "Torrential." Enter the train-off-the-rails drums on "Kill the Light."

The Atomica Project: Grayscale

Taking nearly 3 years to complete, Grayscale is filled with elaborate narratives of failure and recovery. Loosely based on the dramatic climate of Lauren Cheatham and Wade Alin's adopted home of Chicago, many of the tracks draw parallels between the cinematic storms of the Midwest and the turmoil of interpersonal relationships.

the most dangerous race: ARC
Thematically, ARC represents the basic chapters of a man's life, at least as far as it has been lived so far by it's narrator. The third EP in a four part series, ARC is the truest embodiment of theMDR's identity thus far. A dramatic blend of emotive songs, visceral live performances and late 70's influenced electronica, this ep actually attemps to trace the arc of life in a mere 6 songs.
the most dangerous race: inventing shadows
inventing shadows is a collection of dark dramatic songs that resist the over-arranged, over-thought tendencies of modern alternative music.
