Death Rattle is a collision of two monumental forces. Like a pair of clashing typhoons, Philadelphia based avant-garde guitarist James Plotkin and Norwegian free jazz drummer Paal Nilssen-Love generate chaos, disturbance and a terrifying beauty in their first ever collaborative recording project.
James Plotkin’s distinctively extreme, aggressive guitar sound has been a constant presence in underground music since the late 1980s, when he founded the metal-industrial band OLD. As a solo artist and as a member of outfits such as Scorn, Khanate, Phantomsmasher, Khlyst and Jodis, he has plotted a nomadic trail through new metal, dark ambient, industrial, noise, grindcore and drone rock.
As for Paal Nilssen-Love, he is one of the most intense drummers around; highly in demand, he has played alongside Mats Gustafsson, Peter Brötzmann, Toshinori Kondo, Massimo Pupillo, Terrie Ex, John Butcher and others.
