How long have you been making music? Is there a story behind the band name?

Active since 2002. 

You might think that the band name comes from a Processor in a computer but thats not the story.

I saw a wood processor harvesting forest and i thougt that would be a cool name, so the absolute first pictures of Processor was taken with logs. (lost now)  After that it was just Processor (and i know that it is not google friendly)


Tell me about a recent record. 

Here is a single that Processor made with Modesty Beast It’s a lovely track and I just love it all the way!

How many records, eps, or singles has the band put out in total? How has the band changed over time?

Whoo it’s a lot I’m gonna try to get this right 🧐

15 Albums, 4 Eps, Over 100 singles.

Musically I started with industrial drum and base techno. Over time it has changed in many ways more rock/pop etc. And even cinematic ambient music. But the one thing that truly remains is Industrial I think 🤔 


What would be the “next step” that you’d like to see happen?

Hmm I would really like to make music for a movie. 

Besides that just continue to collaborate with interesting artists.
