Matthew Schultz has unveiled his newest endeavor, The Division.
This sound project is a reconstruction of ancient spells and rituals reinterpreted aurally by one of the leading dark ambient artists of our time.
With this newest disc - 'Mantras' - Matthew Schultz has delved into the esoteric and ancient fraternal order of The Division. He has reinterpreted the traditional texts and scores of the order to create a beautifully dynamic and sometimes disturbing disc that synthesizes world music, dark ambient and magick or Matgick. 'Mantras' is the first in a trilogy of discs that express all the aspects of The Division.
Matthew Schultz was the founding member of Lab Report which included musicians such as Genesis P Orridge, Lydia Lunch and Chris Connelly. He was the inventor of the acclaimed A.T.G. or Anti Tank Guitar.
He utilized this instrument not only with Lab Report but also with Pigface and performed on several of their early releases.
