Gerbil Probe: The Media Empire of Michael Allen Rose

Flood Damage is Michael Allen Rose with various friends and conspirators.

Industrial rock with a twisted sense of humor and a psycho-circus sideshow meets burlesque aesthetic. A mix of old school Chicago Wax Trax style rivethead beats and the experimentation of monsters like Foetus and Pig sharpened with the coldwave razor edge of bands like 16 Volt, Hate Dept. and Evil Mothers.

The most recent album is Paraben Torpor. Released in 2023, engineered by Eric McWhorter (Modiviccan). ReGen Magazine lauded it as, "a striking EP that embodies Rose’s penchant for experimentation and innovation, delivering an electrifyingly chaotic aural experience."

Michael also covers backing vocals and keys for Chicago’s own Nine Inch Nails tribute band: Now I’m Nothing.

Paraben Torpor is only the beginning… first the line between artificial and natural becomes blurred… organic and synthetic become difficult to parse… we sleep by necessity under the constant deluge of external influences designed to beat us into submission… our bodies are filled with microplastics and our minds, well… stay tuned… #1 of the new series of EPs...
