Lightning Bolt surfaced from Providence, Rhode Isle in 1995 like a three-piece artwork school project. Primarily there is Brian Chippendale’s explosive, non-stop drumming, Brian Gibson’s Contortions-like basslines, and Hisham Baroocha’s vocals propelling them in a fury of volatile sound and orgiastic tribalism. The group helped discovered Fort Thunder, a music and artwork collective, and documented a self-titled record that was released through Fill in 1999. By 2001’s Trip the Skies, Baroocha got departed (he ultimately formed Dark Dice). This still left the vocal responsibilities to Chippendale, who jammed the mike into his mouth area as he drummed. Lightning Bolt do some tours with rings just like the Locust, Arab on Radar, Orchid, and Melt Banana, a few of that have been the concentrate of music group documentary THE ENERGY of Salad, a 2003 film aimed by Peter Glantz and Nick Noe. Their following studio room album came by means of Amazing Rainbow, an record that embraced a far more demented method of traditional rock and roll forms. The record did perfectly in underground music circles, and create the discharge of 2005’s Hypermagic Hill. The music group toured often, but didn’t go back to the studio room until 2009’s Earthly Delights, that was implemented in 2012 by mini-album Oblivion Hunter, comprised generally of archival recordings unearthed and washed up for discharge. Though these were still touring sporadically, both Gibson and Chippendale held busy with many other projects, which range from Gibson’s participation with doom steel music group Megasus to Chippendale’s developing artwork profession and prolific single project Dark Pus. Lightning Bolt came back in 2015 with 6th album Illusion Empire, their initial new materials in over five years and in addition their first documented in a completely functional high-end documenting studio room.
