CAI 777 started in the early 1990'ties creating their own acoustic view of a world where magick and industrialism melt together.
Influenced by the early Industrial Bands like SPK, Skinny Puppy, Throbbing Gristle and also by ethnic and religious/ritual music they soon found their own way melting a bunch of different styles together.
to describe the music of CAI 777 is not easy so here just a few ideas ...
"sinister electronic music for the decease of the cybercivilisation"
"the audible link between industrial technology, dark ancient rites and mysticism"
"apocalyptic shamanic dances inspired by H.P.Lovecraft and Charles Baudelaire "

CAI777 - Hybrid released 1997 by MASCHINENMUSIK

CAI 777 in the press :
...with brachial rythms...hardcore guitar walls...hypnotic and in some smash hits like "Azag Toth" where complex harmonic strange tunes were executed...good for dancing
Aeterna No. 7
...a wide spectrum of sound scapes of dark electronic music...
The Gothic Grimoire
...pictures of monstrous machines all through the artwork of the project and without any doubt the listener to this record gets the feeling that this kind of music from CAI 777 where made exactly at these horrifying places...
Aeterna No. 8
...hard crossover, dark ambient-surroundings, ethno- industrial and even modern dancefloor-elements were melted together on "Life/Death" to a 20 trax-conceptalbum, which is sheer unbelievable in its complexity...
