In 2002 the fact that a band consisted of past and present members of earthtone9, Pitchshifter and Consumed was enough to spark some serious attention from the public and the media alike.But no-one expected the artistically expansive soundscape of their debut release, 'Zero, Zero, One'. Released through Copro records last year, it demonstrated a steely determination in the quintet to create organic, blistering emotive and intelligent rock music.
On June the 16 2003 the band will release their latest creation, an EP entitled Ecliptic.Following on from their 2002 debut Debut EP Zero zero one, it shows how the band have settled into their new collective and expanded upon the inventive strands of their handiwork.
Formed in 2000, the youthful quintet have concentrated on developing an individual sound that spans everything from nu-metal to prog rock! Their debut album, 'Routine Irregular' (Casket Records CSK009 – May 6 2002), is an inspired and adventurous creation, embracing angular melody, twisted aggression and complex delivery in equal measure. It showcases a band quite clearly unafraid of circumnavigating the supposed confines of the nu-rock genre.
Produced by the ubiquitous Andy Sneap, Ecliptic has a fulsome and distinctly edgy sound. As Guitarist Matt Grundy explains, "We're really happy with the sound of this record, we got things to sound exactly as we'd imagined them when we were writing the songs."
