The Horned God
Ancient Celtic inspired stoner rock, legends and lore of love and war!!!
The Horned God is a Cosplay band, based on the comic book masterpiece by Pat Mills, and Simon Bisley, Slaine: The Horned God.Comic book writer Pat Mills brought the character of Slaine mac Roth, a Celtic barbarian warrior king who along with his axe Brainbiter and his ability to warp spasm in order to defend his people against the dark druid Slough Feg, to life in 1983 in his graphic novel series titled Slaine. In 1989 Pat Mills collaborated with illustrator Simon Bisley and published the three book series Slaine: The Horned God. In this series Slaine goes on a quest to collect four artifacts that once united will enable him to become high king and lead his people into battle in the hopes of saving them from Slough Feg and his army.
In 2012 the next adaptation of the story began in Albuquerque New Mexico when three friends took their love of the story and combined it with their passion of music and created the three piece cosplay stoner rock or as they call it, “Ancient Celtic inspired stoner rock, legends and lore, of love and war!!!”, musical interruption appropriately named, The Horned God.The Horned God consist of three members, Dominic on vocals and guitar, Robson on bass and Tim on drums. This one of a kind dynamic three piece bring the story of Slaine to life with lyrical dialog and narratives ripped from the pages of the book accompanied by full costume and projected comic book cells throughout the entire performance.The Horned God has harvested the souls of countless unknowing humans and sacrificed them to the dark gods of Cythrawl. They will continue to harvest souls on their quest to make music for the sake of making music and to have fun while expressing their selves musically. They would like to play some regional comic conventions and then ultimately play larger conventions, especially the San Diego comic convention.
The Horned God attribute their musical influences to bands such as Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Dozer, Mark Lanegan and a little touch of Nomeansno. You can hear these influences in their music as well as classic rock gods in their own right, Black Sabbath.
The Horned God is three seasoned, talented musicians who just want to make amazing music and have fun doing it. They bring to the local scene not just a show but an experience unlike all others with the musical talent to back it.
The saga continues for Slaine and The Horned God!
Disasterman (1994 — )
Having reached the twenty-year mark, Disasterman continues its tradition of welding odd-meter grooves to common-time ones, only now-a-days such pairings are housed inside richly, complex structures that have massive doors for ceilings and disappearing walls for floors. Some say the band still disturbs as long and deep as ever. Others say that time has aged the band long enough for a fine balance between invitation and confrontation to take hold. No matter who said what and when, one thing remains clear: making things for the sole sake of making things has by no means gone the way of the two-headed lamb.
We Drew Lightning
Michael Smith and Roland Ostheim have been creating music together since 2002 starting with the band Derail. After some changes in lineup, the band pursued its lush sound and started recording “Swimming With Orange” in 2006-07 on High Mayhem Records. Throughout the recording session there was a need to change identities to progress into a new existence. During one of the recordings sessions the studio was struck with lightning during a take on one of the bands integral songs, and We Drew Lightning was born.
Recently, with the addition of the amazing Aaron Jenks on keyboards, We Drew Lightning is expanding its sound to a new level.Loud, Sensual, Engaging are all words that could describe their sound. We Drew Lightning is a trio of Ruthless Sweethearts that attack with a wall of sound, but bring you back down to earth only to propel you again to another planet.
