Coeus the Boxing Titan Aron Patterson Grand Rapids, MN Coeus the Boxing Titan is an independent, one-man electronic rock project in northern Minnesota, offering a more modern take on the Progressive and Industrial genres. How does it sound? Imagine... just IMAGINE... if Pink Floyd became a Faith No More cover band... recruited a cold-having Marilyn Manson as the vocalist... recorded while a Prince record was booming in the background... and mixed it all on a cheap PC while doing acid. Nothing had ever existed to fill that incredibly-specific void... until now. ENTER: Coeus the Boxing Titan! Minnesota's Coeus the Boxing Titan is a musical deity that descended from the clouds back in 2008, as a way for sole member and songwriter Aro to vent pent-up emotion and punch holes in the fabric of modern rock. Combining his own takes on several genres, Coeus takes enormous influence from progressive, psychadelic, and industrial rock; artists like John Frusciante, Pink Floyd, Queens of the Stone Age, Primus, Beck, Mike Patton, and King Crimson. There are many undercurrents that help make the style distinct; downtempo and hip-hop music were a huge inspiration, as well as funk, noise rock and electronica. With nothing but cheap instruments and a PC, Coeus music is written with a heavy emphasis on the atmosphere and production of each song. The lyrics are stitched together from the chaos of the human mind, dealing with subjects like introspection, sanity, relationships, and heartache.
