An old friend of mine, Mike Carden, sadly and suddenly passed away this April; a lifetime ago he sang/screamed for a group called Shiny Beast. The tracks he was involved with were issued on a 7" EP/CDEP on Boner, it opened with this track, "Distro." Fucking brutal. Anyway, here are a couple tracks with Mike, screaming. He was otherwise the quietest and most reserved person I've ever known. RIP Mike Carden.

Shiny Beast, of course, were an instrumental three piece prog/math rock, with Brian Walsby, Kim Walker, and David Sullivan. Sullivan y'all prolly know via the popular group Red Fang. Walsby has been a significant drummer since he moved to NC in the '80s and he also produces the scene critical zine, Manchild.
