Hey guys and welcome to another week and Mosh Pit Monday! Back from the honeymoon and back to reality. Good to be home though. I took a guitar with me but we were too busy relaxing and I missed my jam room set up. I just picked up a new pair of computer monitor speakers with a great sound so the jam room is just about 100% the way I like it. I’ll be doing an update soon on my new equipment. In the meantime, I’ll just dream about the walks on the beach because I’ll be too busy working in my new job starting tomorrow. Same company, just a new, extra role.
Now, onto this week’s feature band. I’m sure you’re gonna love them!
This week’s band is Obelus from Edinboro, Pennsylvania in the USA. (Some great music coming out of PA, that’s for sure.) Obelus are a hardcore death metal band who formed in 2009. They’ve had a lot of lineup changes over the years but they are “who we are today”. With a couple of EPs under their belts, they’ve played with such bands as “Cattle Decapitation” and on the “Summer Slime” Tour.
Band members are Brandon Roof on guitars/vocals, Rusty Curtis on guitar, Phil Torab on drums/vocals and Will Walker on bass (not pictured above – you can just see his arm in the middle picture).
The above song “Dog On” is very typical of Obelus’ style. A deep, dark growl, very cool guitar riffs and a hard hitting double kick drum beat. The band really gels well together to create a formidable death metal sound. To keep track of where you can see them next, you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Reverbnation. Great work guys! Keep it up. Hopefully we’ll see you ‘downunder’ one of these days!
So for this week, I’ll be busy taking on a new job and getting out and about Thursday night. We might just be able to sneak in a quick visit to see a band on Thursday night. Fingers crossed. Have a great week everyone and keep moshin’. ,,,/ ,,,/
