Biography

Decahedron was formed from the ashes of Frodus in 2002 when Frodus’s Shelby Cinca and Jason Hamacher decided to continue playing together. At the time they recruited Fugazi bassist Joe Lally to play bass. They weren’t sure on if the musical endeavor would go beyond just playing music, and In February of 2002 Hamacher left for a 3 month excursion to Eastern Europe and Turkey after recording drum tracks for the pair. Cinca and Lally then put together songs to the drums and decide that there’s more to this than just a ‘fun project’. Meanwhile, Hamacher, while in the Syrian plains, suggests the name The Black Sea.

In July, under the name The Black Sea, they record 3 songs and later release an EP on Lovitt Records. The three ended up taking an extended vacation in the beginning of the year and returned to America and recorded a copious amount of material. The Black Sea finished a majority of their full length album DISCONNECTION_IMMINENT when they received emails stating that the band name The Black Sea was protected under the ASCAP and if they didn’t change their name, legal action would be taken.

Soon afterwards, Joe Lally moved west (location unspecified) and the band changed its name to Decahedron. According to Cinca and their website, they changed their name to Dechahedron based on this statement: “Decahedron - a ten-sided solid geometric shape… a monolithic force appearing in the minute details of nature and primordial universal mass.” Johnathon Ford of Unwed Sailor (who’s previous band Roadside Monument recorded a split ep with Frodus on Tooth and Nail Records) filled in on bass.
