"During some brief encounters in 1981 behind the counter at Full Moon Records in Port Huron, Michigan, record store clerk (and member of local “industrial” band Hate/Grey) Lon Diehl started receiving tapes of self-made amp-noise, feedback and field recordings adorned with disturbing medical images entitled “Screw Machine” from regular customer Richard Skott. Instantly, Diehl and Skott struck up a friendship over their appreciation of Throbbing Gristle, SPK and Dome. During this time, Diehl was producing the music fanzine “Smarm”, but due to the sudden change of artistic direction and collaboration, both Diehl and Skott started a new imprint which would become the legendary S/M Operations, home to their new experimental/ industrial project Hunting Lodge.
Hunting Lodges initial foray into musical performance during the Summer of 1982 involved both members to enlist the assistance of Karl Nordstrom, while Nordstroms brother Thomas aided the band in their visual art realizations. Soon after, Hunting Lodge played their first show on September 9, 1982 at the now infamous Harrington Ballroom in Port Huron which was released as a private edition cassette that same year. After this performance, Hunting Lodge recorded their much-coveted “23 Minutes of Murder” cassette, though soon thereafter Karl Nordstrom left the band, leaving the line up to consist of the original core two members.
Upon the request of Andreas Muller of the German label Datenverarbeitung to record extra material for the Exhumed cassette, Hunting Lodge started to regularly record material and in the coming months would pull together tracks that would become their first full-length album entitled “Will”. Drawing references from Crowley, Nietzsche and G. Gordon Liddy, Hunting Lodge collaged together industrial percussion patterns, live recordings, early sketches and synthesized noise into nine compositions which also included vocal appearances by Andreas Muller, Francisco Lopez and Masami Akita a.k.a. Merzbow. The final product would serve as a blueprint for later generations of industrial noise music and plant the influential seed for the years later Michigan noise output.
Dais Records is proud to release the official vinyl reissue of Hunting Lodge “”Will”. Fully remastered to its original sonic standards by Michael Rozon." - Dais.

"Hunting Lodge can be seen as one of the few real Industrial pioneers in the early 80`s (beside SPK, Lustmord, Throbbing Gristle). 1982-1989 represents the song oriented side of a band that evolved relentlessly throughout its 8 years of existence and comes with a remastered/restored version of the legendary underground club hit: Tribal Warning Shot. All tracks were remastered. Lon C. Diehl & Richard Skott met in Port Huron, Michigan, in 1981, and quickly bonded over their fascination with the music of T.G., SPK, M.B., and Dome. Hunting Lodge was born. Joined by Karl Nordstrom, the trio mixed synthesizers, bass, metal & electronic percussion, time-shifting effects, and vocals into a dark sonic stew. Nordstrom moved to San Francisco after the recording of the first Hunting Lodge release, the cassette-only At The Harrington Ballroom (1982). Diehl now employed a Roland Synth, Sequencer & 808 drum machine. Skott added his guitar to the musical arsenal, which he used to trigger a Korg MS-20 synth and a vocoder. Diehl and Skott continued recording at a feverish pace, and their first LP, WILL(track 14) was released in 1983. Tribal Drums and primitive digital sampling units soon entered the picture. On the Nomad Souls LP (4, 7) and Tribal Warning Shot 12" (1, 13), rhythm and percussion were driving many of the recordings. Richard Skott moved to Oakland, CA at the end of their first U.S. tour, November 1984. The third wave of Hunting Lodge (1985) brought a new engineer to the band: Helmut Robison recorded the album 8-Ball (3, 6, 9, 12) & Carnivora! EP (5, 10) and played drum kit and bass on many of the recordings (as well as live). Upon his return, Skotts guitar had shed its heavily-affected electronic exoskeleton and Hunting Lodge began to mimic a traditional rock band, while retaining their Industrial roots. In 1989 Diehl & Skott recorded their final demos (8, 11)." - Dark Vinyl.

Title: Shadows Out Of Time 82-83
Format: 3 LP & 7" Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $77.00
2010 release, edition of 600. "Shadows out of Time is a collection of three LPs with unreleased and formerly cassette-only material from Hunting Lodge, representing the first blush of their creativity, a time when each sonic experiment festered into a beautiful sore. Dark ambient, noise, power electronics, all represented here before these pigeons had holes in which to fit. One LP is comprised of the now-legendary Exhumed, which was formerly released cassette-only, heard here in better shape than ever - direct-metal mastered from the original two-track mixes. The second LP is all unreleased material, highlights of which include never-heard gems from the recordings for the promotional cassette 23 Minutes Of Murder. On the flip-side, both literally and figuratively, are the electro-disco-teckno recordings used for intermission music at Hunting Lodge live shows in 1983. The final LP contains live material which was formerly cassette-only, including tracks from At The Harrington Ballroom and S/M Operations Live, as well as much of the formerly unreleased Live At The Lodge. Oft-bootlegged, this performance is pressed here direct from the original masters, representing the two-piece early noise-unit of Hunting Lodge in harrowing live intensity. Furthermore featured in the box-set is an additional bonus 7" including studio cover version of John Wrights Stellazine Shuffle b/w Learn to Will II, formerly released on Nekrophile Rekords Beast 666 cassette compilation in 1983. These LPs and 7" are presented with period-accurate, gloriously bold, black and white artwork. Each LP comes in its own printed sleeve inside of a box printed with the Thomas Nordstrom artwork previously only seen on early Hunting Lodge stationery. Also included are liner notes by Jeff Central Chenault and recording details, including information on equipment used, and never before seen photos of live Hunting Lodge and of collectors minutiae. The scars will never completely heal." -Vinyl-On-Demand
