The style of music they play is rather unique but its best summed up by giving a list of the main five bands that come through in the guitar playing.
The band is situated in Auckland, round the North Shore. The drummer does not need to be able to move his entire kit around as they already have one permenantly set up where they practice.
To get an idea of the style of music, the best recording to listen to would be The Darkened Dawn or Through Hell by The Blue Devil as they were written by the same members. Listening to Through Hell will explain the reason for a drummer. Haha.
They recorded their first song today, obviously without drums. A blend of Earth and Meshuggah, completely improvised for the full 38 minutes and 54 seconds. Well granted a few of the riffs had come up in previous improvisational jams between the two guitarists but the majority of the riffs were completely new. Im not sure but it may be uploaded onto the net for free download, but it may not. We shall see. I guess it all depends on how good it actually sounds timing wise.
So the band of the week last week is one of the pioneers in stoner, doom and drone metal. The latest album they have released is pure brilliant. Very ambient sounding and very well just listen to the thing, its great.
The band of the week last week is....
The band of the week, this week is....

The band is currently looking for a drummer. The drummer should be able to play weird patterns such as those found in the works of Meshuggah and Four Question Marks, but also standard four beats and of course... double bass and the odd blast beat.
If you want to become part of this new band email The AMG at firstname.lastname@example.org

The two singles due to be released are part of the upcoming album by Zaryathus, and while it follows the same sci fi influenced background as the first album, the 2010 album promises to be less repeative than its predecessor. The 2010 Zaryathus album is titled 'The Obliteration of Planet 13'.

Its a great place to find new bands and it has plenty of djent style music, so you know its good. However, I'm not sure if we should wait and change our name before or after I try to get us onto Futuristic Metal...
Anyway point is, look out for The Darkened Dawn on Futuristic Metal over the next few weeks or so, it may be there. :)
