Much of Current 93's early work was similar to late 1970s and early 1980s industrial music: abrasive tape loops, droning synthesizer noises and Tibet's distorted, ranting vocals. This early work became influential with the goth scene. Later works found Tibet mostly casting off such trappings in favor of a more organic sound, labeled by some as "apocalyptic folk" music, occasionally featuring his sinister nursery rhyme-influenced singing and primarily acoustic folk-styled music.

FLUXEUROPA: CURRENT 93 (380 words)
David Tibet of Current 93 is a man on a perpetual spiritual journey, and the music of his group has also progressed from its industrial-experimental origins to become a pivotal exemplar of the dark folk genre.
Current's All The Pretty Little Horses (The Inmost Light) (1996 DURTRO 030CD), was devoted to the theme of childhood...but death follows close behind.
Current's latest offering is Horsey (1997 DURTRO 032 CD), three tracks of which were previously released on the Horse 12" LP which made up the historic three-album boxed set with Sol Invictus' Lex Talionis and Nurse With Wound's Lumbs Sister (1990 CERNE 00123).
Current 93 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (632 words)
Current 93 are an eclectic British experimental music group, working since the early 1990s in folk-based musical forms.
Current 93 have released some twenty albums, and many singles, as well as having been a guest on many of the above listed artists' records, and others' such as Magic Lantern Cycle, Nature and Organization and The Hafler Trio.
Much of Current 93's early work was similar to late 1970s and early 1980s industrial music: abrasive tape loops, droning synthesizer noises and Tibet's distorted, ranting vocals.
