Former BT contributor Paul Lemos has never been one to sit still. Over 38 years, he has released nearly 40 albums spanning various genres, suffered the deaths of his closest bandmates and reconfigured Controlled Bleeding into what is arguably one of its strongest lineups. Larva continues in the punk prog style he resurrected late last […]
In the over three decades since he first began the project, Paul Lemos has guided Controlled Bleeding all over the sonic map, from the early power electronics days into 1980s industrial, and eventually jazz and prog tinged rock improvisations. It makes sense then that, for the first full length release of mostly new work since […]
Sempre tenaci Paul Lemos e soci. Dopo l’interessante split dello scorso anno con gli Sparkle In Grey tornano con questo nuovo doppio album e non si accontentano, dato che mettono in circolo pure la ristampa di un vecchio e ormai mitizzato lavoro, l’esordio per la Broken Flag, Distress Signals (in due versioni, i collezionisti più […]
Continued Uncategorization: Controlled Bleeding’s history goes back to the early 80’s, and if you’re brave enough to attempt headway through their confusing discography, both as Controlled Bleeding and various offshoots, then you’re much more patient than we are and you probably like mapping things out in flowcharts. Though, if you don’t and you want to […]
Genre/Influences: Industrial-rock, noise, psychedelic-hardcore.
Background/Info: Controlled Bleeding was set up in the late 70s. The band hailing from New York rapidly became an influential name at the experimental- and industrial music scene. They’ve released an impressive discography, but this new studio-work can be easily considered as a milestone in their career. “Larva Lumps & Baby […]

Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps Is the Overture for a New Era of Controlled Bleeding
There is much to admire about a band that’s been around for forty years with seemingly countless releases that touch on almost every conceivable genre. But more than anything else, Controlled Bleeding deserve admiration for their devotion to their whims. […]
I don’t really review music here at The Rotting Zombie, mainly because I know virtually zero about it and I find that music more than anything is extremely subjective. Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps is the latest album from Controlled Bleeding who formed in 1985 and over the years have dipped into many different genres, […]
Controlled Bleeding Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps Artoffact Records www.artoffact.com Release Date: August 26, 2016
Founded by Paul Lemos in 1978 Controlled Bleeding is a band that commands respect. With a near literal ton of releases, the band are probably best known to the masses as a pioneering industrial band, although they have never stuck […]
Paul Lemos of Controlled Bleeding interviewed about “Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps”
“Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps” marks the first full new album since 2002 from Long Island-based experimental band Controlled Bleeding. A double album, it contains a unified set of 5 pieces (‘Larva Lumps’) as well as a set of more primal instrumentals (‘Baby […]
The Gregory Jacobsen cover wrapping this double album is a thing of warped beauty, but in no way prepares you for the flash flood of fret gymnastics it contains. An opener that literally takes your breath away, “Driving Through Darkness” is bloody brilliant, all hot proggy curves and carbolic rubs with a satisfying Pere Ubu-like […]
US band CONTROLLED BLEEDING has been a feature of the US music scene for more than three decades, and especially in the first 20 or so years of their existence they were a prolific band on most levels. For the past decade or so they have been relatively quiet though, but they have now marked […]
Controlled Bleeding interview: ‘It was hard finding my bearings after losing my two long time collaborators’.
The fine Toronto-based label Artoffact Records is not only reissuing a significant portion of the Controlled Bleeding catalogue (check here for more info on which titles), they also will release the first proper complete studio album by Controlled Bleeding […]
Perennial Long Island noise-rockers return with their first album in 14 years, as detailed and cacophonous as they’ve always been.
Since their 1983 debut Knees and Bones, the Long Island-based Controlled Bleeding’s 30-plus albums have spanned a dizzying array of genres including noise, industrial, no wave, prog, psych, dub, and jazz (just to name a […]

Welcome, kiddies… Since I took no part in choosing this album for review, I have to imagine that out esteemed editor saw the track titled “The Perks of Being a Perv” and knew that I would make an immediate personal connection. I would ask him to provide evidence for such a vulgar assertion, beyond the […]
Before NIN and Ministry there was Controlled Bleeding and though their story has largely remained underground and untold their influence on the industrial/noise genre is undeniable. Now, almost 15 years after their last release, these NY experimentalists have returned with a brand new album, Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps. Featuring the single “Driving Through Darkness,” […]
