Sweeping arpeggios and grinding rhythms birth an audio assault in harmony with screeching highs, guttural lows and melodic screams to mix a cocktail of epic harmony and unforgiving metallic brutality.
At the Left Hand of God (or "ATLHOG") has spent the last two years proving themselves as the wide ranged architect of metal that they are on the Midwest circuit. Now, with their debut album, "The Apocalypse Tapestry" (September 2009), circulating - their goals have become ever loftier.
The metal scene in Kansas City is often a difficult one to exist within, as other genres such as Radio Rock, Country and Hip-Hop dominate the day. Metal acts have to work twice as hard to garner attention and a following. Yet, the often capacity crowds At the Left Hand of God pulls in scream for themselves, as well as the catalog of prestigious national acts they have opened for such as God Forbid, Bleeding Through, The Human Abstract, Obituary, Abigail Williams, The Agonist and more.
ATLHOG has always had a fiercely determined do-it-yourself mentality. Producing recordings, generating their own artwork, filming music videos, designing websites, booking tours and getting their debut album distributed online are just a few of the tasks they have accomplished with little to no outside assistance. Another testament to their drive is the fact they have already written and are rehearsing numerous new songs for their next album.
