Continously adding of dubs/layers caused the loops to become muddy and noisy. This layered with screams, grunts, groans, vocals, whispers, etc. and a lot of delay was how SICKNESS started out. It has evolved over time moving from your traditional guitar pedal improv to custom made electronics and triggers. Currently the sounds are made using modular synth and laptop to create jarring spastic noise that puncture acoustic sounds and field recordings. SICKNESS has toured extensively in the US, Japan and Europe bringing his brand of harsh electronic purity and scumbag electronics to the world.
2) SICKNESS IS A D-BEAT CRUST PUNK ROCK'N'ROLL BAND FROM FRANCE!
3) SICKNESS was a mid 90s death metal band who released a full length album entitled ?Ornaments of Mutilation?
4) SICKNESS is CZECH DEATH-DOOM METAL BAND (full lenght album - THE STORM OF FATE and EP SPIRAL OF LIFE)
5) Sickness (born 17 February 1990, previously known as LGB) is a hip-hop artist and music producer from the city of Popovo, Bulgaria.
He is part of the Bulgarian hip-hop group North Central.
He was first influenced by rap music when he heard the cassettes of the Bulgarian hip-hop group "?????? ?????" which elder boys used to play loudly in his neighbourhood.
Sickness himself has started rapping with street freestyles. Later his friend, Enzo, has invited him to do some open mic recordings in his home.
Sickness started writing songs in the year of 2004. Together with his fellow friends and rappers Enzo, Dodger, Psycho and Jada they formed the hip-hop group PSG (Popovo Street Gangsters).
During this period the group was recording songs in "Studio V" in the nearby town of Gorna Oriahovica.
With PSG, Sickness (under the name of LGB) and his mates from the group have released several songs which became widely played and recognized amongst young people and in discos in the local region and cities.
The group eventually draw serious attention with the release of the music video of their hit single "?? ??????" (English: "At the party"). After the initial success of the group, Enzo has decided to spend money on studio equipment and hardware in order for the group to establish a recording studio in their birth town Popovo.
In 2009 Jada has retired from the group and PSG was renamed to North Central. In 2010 Sickness starts working on his solo project album "???? ??????" (English:"My view") which by the end of 2011 is completed.
The album features old school underground and new school hip-hop sounding. Themes in the album range from everyday's hard life struggles to people who criticize music, social protests and optimism about future.
Currently Sickness is working together with North Central on their upcoming album.
