UNDERER is the solo project of avant-garde multi-instrumentalist and recording artist Nick Shellenberger (Cleric, Shardik), and was conceived in 2016 as an escape from the mentality of writing and performing in a collaborative setting. While the music of UNDERER explores a markedly minimal sound palette and writing style, Shellenberger’s compositions are meticulously crafted with the rhythmical chaos, creepy electronics, and volatile dynamics he has refined throughout his experimental career. 

UNDERER’s debut LP, The Code, brings together the precision of programmed drums with the experimentation of free and improvised composition, telling a harrowing tale over the course of seven acutely distressing tracks. Capturing a slice of time during a period of a few months in the summer of 2017, The Code was initially programmed in Shellenberger’s home studio and then finished with Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Dysrhythmia) at Menegroth, the Thousand Caves. Available June 2020 via Nefarious Industries.
