Short Bio & Review: Peter Nyström started Negru Voda in late 1992, as a side-project to Megaptera, where he would be free to follow through on all of his musical ideas without compromise. Heavily influenced by pioneering electronic and industrial acts like Test Department, S.P.K., Laibach, Cabaret Voltaire, The Klinik, Front 242, Controlled Bleeding and Severed Heads, The Negru Voda sound is based on strong rhythms and analog sounds, various electronic gear and field recordings of various origin. It is by no means polished or refined, but rather throbbing raw lo-fi noise in all it’s uncompromising glory. Having worked for nearly 13 years at the steelworks in his hometown of Oxelösund, Peter is more than familiar with the real industrial noise of one of Scandinavia’s largest steelworks. Negru Voda has released a couple of full-length albums as well as a few split and collaboration albums. In 2011 a 3 disc compilation was released with new and re-mastered material.
Additional Info: Peter is also involved in other projects like: Instant Cold Commando, Obscene Noise Korporation, Negru Pvlse.
