Virginia, United States (1996 – present)

Headphones are advised to receive the full dose

It’s time to take your musical pre- (and mis-) conceptions and check them at the door. Form, melody, rhythm, chords: these words represent nothing but rules, barriers and walls which only serve to limit the places where “music” can exist or reach towards. Eric Kesner couldn’t care less about anyone’s predetermined ideas about what music is or should be. True Colour Of Blood’s music can best be described as “Ambient”, “Dark Ambient” or “Drone” but manages to break even the rules (if there are any such thing) of those genres by making music with only guitars instead of the usual array of synths and samplers.

What sets True Colour Of Blood apart from other artists? Deep originality and the desire/need to create something new, fresh and exciting. Taking his instrument, the guitar and using it in ways that others had never dreamed of.
Since the mid 1990s True Colour Of Blood has been creating Dark Ambient/Ambient/Drone soundscapes. TCOB is recognized as one of the originators of the guitar based style and has released six critically acclaimed albums (15 Years Of Guitar Drones just released March 2012) and multiple compilation appearances on such labels as Hypnos (US), Gears Of Sand (US), Eibon (Italy), Slo Bor Media (US), Afe (Italy), Waterscape (Germany), Dreamland (Australia) and Soulworm Editions (Poland).

    Some of the best guitar drone I've heard since Stars of the Lid.

    TRUE COLOUR OF BLOOD is the one-man-band project of Eric Kesner . What you get is ambient/drone music. It's great. What makes it so special is , that all that you hear is guitar based – no computerized soundscapes, samplers or synthesizers. The listening experience is similar to listening to "Zeit" from the year 1972 of the german electronic avantgarde band Tangerine Dream : Pure cosmic beauty. Press the repeat button and listen to these tracks over and over. To go on a journey beyond the meaning of time and space... -.-.-.-. om hari om .....

    Thinking about recording another True Colour Of Blood album but not sure what to do with it? Don't think I'll press CDs. May just post it here and give it away for free. Would love to release some vinyl. Any ideas?

    Been looking for stuff that sounds like this, good to sleep to. Quiet and darkness makes music like this stand out better in the mind
