Rorschach Test is an American industrial band from Denver, Colorado, formed by James Baker.

James Baker and Benjamin Anderson[edit]

Baker was a young priest based in Denver until being defrocked in the early 1990s for his allegedly heretical questioning of church doctrine.[1]

He began writing music and lyrics after leaving the church. Soon after, he met guitarist Benjamin Anderson, from Yuma, Arizona, and the two began writing songs together.[2] Baker and band members began composing "metallic, industrial songs with a definite debt to Ministry and Skinny Puppy but including elements of conventional metal."[1]

History[edit]

Rorschach Test formed in Denver, Colorado, and later relocated to Seattle where they were signed to the now defunct label Slip Disc Records out of Chicago, Illinois. They enjoyed a successful career during Seattle's lively music scene in the 90's. They toured North America playing shows with the likes of Korn, Type O Negative, Genitorturers, and Queensrÿche.

After breaking up in the early 2000s, the band has reformed, and is in the works recording a new album, 'American EyeDull'.[3]
