"As insane, twisted and bizarre as Mr. Bungle and Strapping Young Lad... Strangely tripping across the edge... suitable for those embarking on a trip to the Twilight Zone." -Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles
Founded in Toronto in 1998, Nanochrist are a 5-piece electronic metal band in the vein of KMFDM, Fear Factory, and Nine Inch Nails.
"Dead Fiction", Nanochrist's fifth CD, was recorded and mixed in the band's studio, The TARDIS, in Toronto, Canada throughout 2008 and early 2009. It moves away from the dissonance and longer, prog-ish compositions of their earlier albums, evolving into shorter, more concise and digestable songs, without losing any of the complexity, heaviness, and intensity that defines the Nanochrist sound.
Nanochrist was originally conceived by guitarist Mike Bryant as a studio-only project. They made the transition to playing live with the release of their fourth album, "Mythelectronicon". Since then, Nanochrist has played many shows, including Toronto Indie Week in 2007, and Vancouver's NewMusicWest. They have also held the #4 and #1 spots in the Metal sections of garageband.com and mp3.com, respectively.
