Marc Broude started recording while living in a squatter artist collective in 2005. Surrounded by musicians and a wide array of instruments, Marc spent the next couple years making a name for himself as a solo musician while playing in
various bands with genres like black metal, grindcore, punk, industrial and noise.
In 2006 he released "Psychological Warfare", a 7" single featuring 2 abrasive industrial metal songs. The single was sold via MySpace and not available in digital format. That same year, Marc, Danny Cortez and Chris Anderson formed Zog, a black metal outfit that disbanded after the death of Danny Cortez early 2007. Marc took a break through 2007 following intense personal issues and continued his solo endeavor in 2008, residing at various artist collectives and performing at DIY venues throughout the Chicago area.
In 2009 Marc's sound drastically changed as he released the 72 minute dark ambient dirge "Rites of Zen" and "Medicine", an avant-garde jazz inflected album that included a remix of the Orson Welles rendition of "War of the Worlds".
In 2010 Marc and Tim Lash formed Sick Spider which disbanded after recording a series of studio demos the duo released as a self-titled album. In 2011 Marc remixed and reissued "Psychological Warfare". Marc's next release, "NREM Arousal Parasomnia" has a tentative release date of 11/11/11.
