Another bit of digging in my walk-in closet and more buried "treasure" for me to archive.  These are mixed media (5"x 5"photographs,  paint,  metal,  staples,  and medium) pieces that were used for the cover of Controlled Bleeding's THE DROWNING CD on Dark Vinyl from 1994.  The source images that I later "processed" are by Ivan Sladek from one Eastern Block country or another (I don't remember).  In keeping with industrial cliches,  there  is a nearly tangible sense of suffocation here,   a blurry disquiet that fits quite well with the sounds on this release.  On the CD package a title label was affixed to the jewel box that obscured the cover image,  but was easily removed. Enjoy.
