"Forever there will be the speculation that the exploration of darkness as a beautiful place will lessen our fear of it all, ease the pain a little..."
Attrition, from Coventry, England, began in the early 1980s with founder Martin Bowes. This group has garnered a loyal following because of their ability to merge the electronic, darkwave and classical forms into something their own.
Attrition's sound is strongly based on contrasts. There are gothic tracks that incorporate violas, ethereal tracks that contain Martin's gritty vocals, and danceable electro pieces that use orchestral arrangements. Recent tracks have even brought in a member of the Paris opera, Franck Dematteis, giving the music yet another unusual twist.

"Attrition have always been a nexus of industrial fury, gothic drama, ambient structural finesse and classical chamber orchestrations. Stunning in scope, character and intellect, Martin Bowes has been a paragon of true creative prowess, holding in two hands the past and future of music, and smashing them together with a calculated and charismatic menace. Bowes builds his dark industrial music with all the compassion and attention to detail of a classical musician..." Electroage.
