Battery Cage

The first snows of winter, 1995, were falling as Battery Cage began locking themselves into darkened studios to undertake recording what would become their first album, Product.

The first snows of winter, 1995, were falling as Battery Cage began locking themselves into darkened studios to undertake recording what would become their first album, Product. Although they were unaware of the twists and turns the future would bring, the original lineup of Tyler Newman, Jeremy Page, and AJ Kaelin, had a desire to bring their vision of uncompromising brutal electronics into the Boston live music scene. Bringing the DIY ethos of punk rock, the raw power of metal, and the futuristic dance-ability of EBM together in one powerful package, the trio quickly gained a reputation for their in-your-face live performances and unwillingness to be easily pigeonholed into a single genre. The band soon found itself signed to Sinless Records, and quickly paved the way to their own self destruction through extended recording sessions, constant live performances, and well documented personal excesses.

Blinking in the autumn sun of 1997, the band found Sinless Records closing it’s doors just as they delivered the master tapes of Product. Although they had managed to craft what would eventually become a critically acclaimed masterwork of disturbed yet compelling power electronics, the frustration of watching the label go up in smoke combined with the stress of deepening artistic divisions within the band became too much to handle. Jeremy decided to leave the band to pursue a career in the hip-hop scene. AJ was later removed from the project due to personal differences, and has since disappeared. « hide
