Puncture was formed in 1992 by
guitarist Rick Perry, stemming from his desire to pursue
something in a more techno/industrial direction,
with early live lineups featuring (among others)
guitarist John Perez.
They embodied the term "industrial metal" as well as any band
in the field, as their music has all the trademarks of said
genre -- programmed drums, heavy guitar riffing, heavily
distorted/treated vocals, and various sampling effects.
On the plus side, the songs are executed well, as they display
just the right amount of aggression without being dreary or
On the minus side, songs tend to get samey, and they never really
stray far from the basic premise.
This band might have developed into something special given a
bit more time, but they broke up in late 1999.
