Biography

Portland, Maine, United States (2002 – 2009)

Conifer was a five-piece instrumental / from Portland, Maine, United States formed in 2002.

Though Conifer has received quite a bit of critical praise they’ve somehow managed to live off the grid for the past seven years. Not easily pigeon-holed by a set genre, mixing , , metal and psychedelia in a very loud way, they have created a relentlessly driving and hypnotic whirlwind. Minimal, ethereal passages are narcotically lengthened and crescendos of distortion are sustained well beyond the boundaries adhered to by many of their peers. Welcoming dense riffage washes over the listener referencing pan Asian themes, despair and musical manifest destiny. An evolving monster throughout its years, they started as math rock, became more psychedelicized via doom, now are breathing and churning like a shrieking metal Amon Duul II spewing forth soaring early Scorpions-esque solos contorted and out of control as a speeding train wreck towards Guru Guru land. “Heavy” by being beat/repetition heavy in a way that is practically reminiscent of electronic kraut discipline…yet just as loud and massive as ever.

Band split up in 2009.
