Crash Worship or ADRV (Adoración De Rotura Violenta) was a San Diego based experimental aktionist industrial-noise, multicultural/multidisciplinary performance group formed in 1986, most renowned for its live shows in which three stand-up percussionists hammered out concussive internal linkpoly-rhythms to abstract mutated guitar, synthesizers, effects and dueling vocalists. Audience members were showered in various substances such as blood, wine and internal linkhoney while band members ignited combustibles and fire within the performance area. Crash Worship also released several albums and singles of both live and studio-recorded music. Mostly self-produced (unusually packaged and laboriously handcrafted) works in visually stunning screen printed metal splattered with paint, urine, blood and other esoterica. Although they toured playing their recorded material, the celebratory nature of these events left each show open to spontaneity and improvisation.

Initially starting as a studio project, Crash Worship soon learned the power of a live audience. During performances, the band's members (or often provocateurs) would manipulate the crowd, involving them more deeply into the show, ultimately internal linkeliminating any boundaries between spectator and performer. The musicians would also mobilize their instruments on and off the stage into the middle of the audience (or outside), lighting explosives and hosing down the crowd with various liquids creating an atmosphere of celebratory abandon and mirth. Strobe internal linklights, nudity, mysterious liquids, sex and smoke filled rooms (at next to internal linkzero visibility) were all a part of the average show. The internal linkchaos of these events often invited unwanted internal linkattention from police who would later forcibly shut down a large percentage of the band's performances.
