Etare Neged (pronounced: e-TAR-e ne-GED) is the superhuman form of the life-force energy derived from Pluto. He is Plutonian as described by both the Inferno and that of the underworld. He is the fusion of fire and ice, light and dark, the medieval and the post-apocalyptic, the interpolation of pain, pleasure and rage. This energy was born onto this Earth decades ago on the outskirts of Chicago, raised in Indianapolis, only to return to The Windy City as Etare Neged, Artist/MC/Producer. As a Master Story Teller, he grew up a slave to his imagination, seeing, hearing and experiencing life in an alternate reality within the confines of his own skull. After being forced to leave the violent world of the gridiron, he became lost a soul with no focus, no direction, no spirit and worse yet, no way to channel his endless rage. He was almost completely consumed by the darkness until one day amidst all of the sorrow he found the light of industrial music seeping up from the dungeon below. This music was created by Superproducer D-Chi and lit a spark within Neged, the flames from which continue to burn bright today. After becoming a prolific lyricist and forming the cutting edge hip hop group The Dread with D-Chi and Exxon Valdees they signed a deal to become part of The Empire, a local conglomerate of MCs and Producers who eventually penned a distribution deal with Ichiban Records. Through the misguided management of a fraudulent CEO, ties were severed and The Empire was no more. Several members continued to produce music as The Wolf Pack and later 1241, Inc. was formed by Mr. Bellicosity. 1241, Inc. thrived as a promotional and musical entity and continues to do so today. After years of being strictly a lyricist, Neged channeled the energy of Har Ness the Sixth as a guiding light in to the world of production. Through Har Ness, his production skills have brought Pluto to Earth and laid the backdrop for the debut solo project The Introduction of Mau Fatt the Rotgut. This project chronicles the possession of Etare Neged by the demon Carcinoma. In order to survive, Neged channeled the energy of Mau Fatt the Rotgut, who had the will and might to survive the torture of intense radiation and chemical exorcism. This treatment fused the two Plutonians together. Mutating the body and freeing the soul to provide the world with something the it has never heard. These esoteric tales of the triumphs and sorrows of the tortured soul are unparalleled in the world of hip hop and throughout the music industry at large. Neged has now embarked on a major distribution deal with TMG Street Pride/Warner Music Group to bring his genre defying vision and voice to you. Prepare...

"The Introduction of Mau Fatt the Rotgut" by Etare Neged is a new age hip-hop album chronicling one man's journey through a world of despair. With the fantastical concept comes a unique sound. There is a clear element of goth and horror present in the sound, although it is still a hip-hop album. A throaty vocal delivery and intense undertone add to the darkness and bring the sound full circle. Overall the album is an interesting experimental mix of hip-hop and darkness. Highlights include "You Made Me," with it's creepy bass line and intense vocal performance. "Space Disco (Remix)" features an eclectic arrangement, cool spacy sounds, intricate beats and tricky vocals. "The Gutwrenching Cyborg" takes the dramatics to the max and has nice flow in the vocals and cool effects. If you enjoy experimental Hip-Hop, give this CD a try. (WARNING!
