Tar Pond are an experimental doom metal band originating from Switzerland. Dubbed as an "anti-supergroup", the project was formed by Martin Eric Ain (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost), Markus Edelmann (Coroner), scratch artist Thomas Ott, Swiss artist A.C. Kupper and Stefano Mauriello. The band recorded a debut album between 2016 and 2017 but before the album could be released Martin Eric Ain would pass away on 21 October 2017.
The band nearly broke up but chose to carry on with a new bassist in Monica Schori, ultimately releasing their debut album Electric Protocol of Constant Sadness on 20 March 2020. A release show was planned at Kino Roland in Zurich but was canceled due to the CO-VID19 pandemic.
