Biography

Duma is the name of two bands -

1 - Dance act who have a song called Cocaine

2 - Grindcore band from England. Hailing from the darkest depths of Tyne & Wear, Eddie Carter, Chris Jermyn and Mark Watson and Chris’s trusty drum machine started Duma in early 2003. They were got into the their song writing and started to perform live. By May they’d linked up Neil Hewson as a second guitarist. In January 2004 Neil parted ways with the group. With the drum machine braking down March 2004 saw a new member of the band, drummer Kevin Noon. With a proper drummer came a new style. It became obvious that no human drummer could hit 15 different percussion instruments at the same time, and so the new Duma style was created.

Unfortuantely, in September of 2005, Kev decided that the music was not in the direction he wish to go with, and went on to join World Of Static, then in January 2006, the drummer situation was sorted when Paul McKeirnan joined Duma. Along with Paul came their second guitarist, Alistair Barrie. To try to explain Duma’s sound it is sort of part metal, part hardcore, part punk, part indie, part stoner.

Duma then split up in late 2006. No one was to blame, but it is generally thought that the classic musical differences came to end this band.

In 2011, three of the original members (Eddie Carter, Chris Jermyn and Mark Watson) has started to talk about getting back togeher and going to the old school day. They have also enlisted the help of a Mr Chris Chaney, ex-drummer of the Newcastle upon Tyne version of Articulo Mortis.
