Pure Maryland doom for the brotherhood of music.
Pale Horseman is a 4 piece metal band from the Chicago area which combines elements of sludge, doom, and death metal. Featuring a dual attack of guitarists/vocalists and a pummeling rhythm section, their live shows have been most often described as “crushing” and their studio recordings have been handled by the mixing boards of some of their biggest influences including Dennis Pleckham of Bongripper, Noah Landis of Neurosis, and Justin Broadrick of Godflesh.
The Bionic Cavemen are vintage heavy. And they’ve come to destroy the future. They began when the guitarist and the bassist met in high school. They were the only two who fit in, and they bonded over pep rallies and bake sales. The drummer met the guitarist in the woods and asked what he was doing with his life. They jammed and eventually brought on the singer because he is the guitarist’s brother, and the only person they knew to have a credit card. Over a series of car crashes and smoke-filled garages, they honed their sound, embracing the loud blues rock that allowed for the occasional psychedelic trip, while still maintaining their meat-eating, whiskey-drinking roots.
2018. Chicago’s Inebrium gathers to lay down ear splitting, noisy, slack tuned riffs, catapulted by tones of massive volume while paying homage to such proto-metal predecessors as Sabbath, Stooges, and Thin Lizzy while blending early thrash guitar chuggery a la early Metallica with sludge/stoner/noise influences such as Kyuss, Melvins, and Suplecs…
Inebrium began in late 2017 when long time stalwarts in the Chicago metal scene vocalist/guitarist John Almonte (formerly Witchbanger, Wickerman) and bass player Kyle Tuggle (formerly Bloody Spades, Antioch Secret Society) actualized a long time musical vision they had been discussing. They recruited local hard hitting drummer Colin Tahi (Propane! Propane!) and got to work writing. Then in early 2018 solidified the line up with newly relocated Oakland, CA guitarist Jason James (former Damnweevil, Secret Order of Tusk).
Currently in pre-production on their first EP, look for Inebrium to be leveling venues throughout Chicago and beyond throughout 2018.
