Brainclaw is aggressive, technology-driven electronic music. With songs featured on the Matrix Revolutions, the Matrix Box Set and Spiderman Collector's Edition DVDs, this massive frontal audio assault is poised to take the world by storm. Dark, challenging themes, powerful lyrics and muscular arrangements distinguish this electro industrial machine from the rest of the pack.

On their current album Morrisville, PA residents Brainclaw aka David Giuffre (synthesizers, samplers, drum programming, lyrics, vocals) and his wife/partner in crime Tara (drum programming, sound design, effects, lyrics, vocal) seduce us with another tasty electro industrial menu.
Already the opener "Softkill" states the talent of the duo with regard to dithyrambic melodies, choruses, sound details and atmospheres. The track holds loads of energy and drive, fizzling and bubbling sounds and the alternating vocals of David and Tara. This duet way of singing is generally one of their trademarks and adds an exciting edge to the music, sometimes mystic, sometimes aggressive and dangerous. Further on it doesn’t get boring to listen to, because the two musicians include loads of breaks, experiments and different style elements; apart from EBM/electro and industrial there’s also some darkwave and even Gothic flavour inside. It’s not possible at any time to compare their music with other bands' outcome, and that's a plus, too.

Upbeat, severe electro track, perfect for credits, shootout, chase scene. All synth track that MOVES. Vocal samples and sci-fi feelings. Robots waging war.

Upbeat, but mournful, beautiful choir melody, haunting and sad, but hopeful. Good end credits music. Our dead are still with us. Melodic and dancey. Driving beat hopefull male female chorus. Wistful but victorious. Mixed Vocals, Electronic, Electro-Industrial
Very sad, defeated, hero is dead, humanity has failed. Irish-style ballad telling of the end of the world, plus love lost through death. Mourning music but sinister at the same time. Completely depressing, great for end credits of horror movie. Could be mid-movie inspiration for hero to avenge loss. Male Vocals, Electronic, Electro-Industrial
Odd, eccentric tune about Salvador Dali. Weird verbal references to his artwork throughout. Quirky, but still heavy industrial. Complicated lyrics, but still four on the floor beats. Arty but good for working scene, mad scientist, computer hacker, any quirky scene. Mixed Vocals, Electronic, Electro-Industrial
Angels falling through the acid clouds. Wars between angels and demons. Aggressive and sinister with huge, epic chorus. Triumphant and tragic. The world is caught in the crossfire. Humanity is insignificant, dying out in time. Mixed Vocals, Electronic, Electro-Industrial
