In the spririt of rivitalization and revolution, Prosthetic Orchestra is poised to explode onto the music scene. The brainchild of Cefer, a renegade space pirate from the metal band Alpha Decay, who grew weary of the confines and limitations of the current state of metal, is intent on bringing this project into the forefront of it's experimental sound. Feeling that the remedy to the monotony lay in taking back the all-out hedonism of previous times, combining them with modern blending, and attempting to meet the artist's own higher expectations of what music should be, he began his journey. Not originally intended for live performance, but more to be allowed the freedom to extend one's own talent and ambitions. From the artist's exotic beginnings in Jerusalem, Israel, circa 1982 (both parents musicians in their own right), Cefer (who derived his name from what the mark of Deggial spells out which is translated to 'infidel'), was destined to continue family tradition, in his own way of course, with Prosthetic Orchestra as the result. Picking up his first guitar at an early age, he quickly went from playing bass and honing his chops with 80's and 90's heavy metal, grunge, and death metal to rhythm and lead, keyboards and vocals. Along the way, he studied and appriciated the talents and abilities of industrial music innovator Trent Reznor, along with citing influences along the lines of Galder of Old Man's Child. The diversity that is reflected in his background is carried over into his own projects with the music of P.O. which reflects the artist's desire to blend and integrate industrial, techno and dance music with dark, heavy metal. Atrocities, this seasoned musician's third release under the name of Prosthetic Orchestra refelects his growing knowledge and skill in the audio engineering world, with this his third release, all of which are available at CDbaby.com, he has been enjoying this forray into testing his songwriting and recording abilities to date and promises that the listener won't regret the time spent getting to know the more macabre underbelly of this dark, new genre. -Betsy.
