Rage Inducer

Confronting Genocide

Rage Inducer is the post-doom horror soundtrack for a world ravaged by industrialized genocide. The project was created by author and photographer John Edward Lawson in late 2015. Given the worldwide popularity of genocide Rage Inducer draws from popular culture, despite being rooted in doom metal. Music which has influenced the Rage Inducer aesthetic is Acumen Nation, Arch Enemy, Bolt Thrower, Candlemass, Cathedral, Dissecting Table, Godflesh, Jesu, Meathook Seed, Numb, Oneiroid Psychosis, Paramaecium, Skin Chamber, Skinny Puppy, and Skrew. During the 1990s Lawson kicked around in the DC industrial-electro-goth scene in the band Dead Letter Office, and numerous side projects. In 1998 he graduated from Omega Studios School of Applied Recording Arts and Sciences with certificates in Music Productions Techniques for Advertising as well as Music Business and Artist Management. He went on to own and operate Rack and Ruin Studio, recording artists in the Washington, D.C. area for many years. Lawson has since been involved in the production of numerous short films, including award winners Party Girl and Uberman: An Experiment in Consciousness. Director Jayson Densman has collaborated with John for years spawning a trilogy of PoVids derived from his poetry. Lawson’s novels, short fiction, and poetry have garnered nominations for many awards, including the Stoker and Wonderland Awards. In addition to being a founder of Raw Dog Screaming Press and former editor-in-chief of The Dream People he currently serves as vice president of Diverse Writers and Artists of Speculative Fiction. Raw Dog Screaming Press is known for publishing poetry and horror novels by internationally renowned artists from the industrial and metal communities Till Lindemann, Andy Deane, Donna Lynch, and Steven Archer.
