Biography

Infidel? / Castro! is an experimental band from Philadelphia. A collaboration between Colin Marston and George Korein, their style incorporates ambient, metal, IDM, digital collage and live instrumentation, all in a dark context. After a CD-R of early recordings, Infidelicacy, they put out their first official CD, Case Studies in Bioentropy, in November 2001. It featured concepts such as “The Violence of Hygiene” reflected in a collage of voice samples. They began performing live as a duo, swapping between guitar, bass, drumset and keyboard as well as using looping and a drum machine. A split 12” record with Friendly Bears was released by Epicene Sound Systems and Rice Control, featuring “The 49-Day Period Between Lives”, a collage combining modified materials from Case Studies in Bioentropy and their following double CD sequel, Bioentropic Damage Fractal. They recorded two Suicide Ballads for the 4-way split CD Contre Tous released by Dead Mind Records in Holland. These tracks were a significant departure, featuring more song-like elements and morbid lyrics spoken or sung through vocoder. The latter of the two, Exposing One’s Belly to Predators, was a love song loosely based on the real-life story of German cannibals Armin Menschenfresser and Bernd Juergen. They toured the US for two weeks in January 2004 as a trio with ex-Time of Orchids drummer Keith Abrams. Bioentropic Damage Fractal was finally released in April 2005 on Crucial Blast Records. The band has been on indefinite hiatus ever since.
