Biography

There are several performers named Esoteric: 1) A band from United Kingdom. 2) A disbanded Mexican band which released a demo in 1995. 3) Emcee of the Boston act 7L & Esoteric, MC Esoteric. 4) Dutch artist Curley’s alias.

1) Esoteric is a band from Birmingham, UK. Formed in July 1992, after the gathering of five individuals, inspired to create dark, innovative music that was evocative to and expressive of the contents of their psyche. The lyrics and music are reflections and transpositions of their thoughts, philosophies, emotions and experiences. The music captures the essence of the word esoteric.

1993 saw the release of “Esoteric Emotions - The Death of Ignorance” - a demo tape containing 82 minutes of hateful - drug influenced tortured doom with a total of 8 tracks. Almost immediately, this brought about an offer from Aesthetic Death to record a full length CD of new material.

In June 1994, Esoteric entered Rich Bitch studios in Birmingham to record 6 tracks (lasting almost 90 minutes). This recording was released as a double CD, titled “Epistemological Despondency”. Soon after the recording of this album, Stuart (guitar) and Darren (drums) parted company with the band leaving Greg (vocals), Bryan (bass), Simon and Gordon (guitars). In September of that year, Steve joined Esoteric to complete the guitar section. However, a suitable drummer was yet to be found.
