Biography

Salt Lake City UT, United States (2004 – 2013)

Gaza was an band hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah that incorporated elements of , , and into their music. Formed in 2004 and signed to Black Market Activities, they have released 1 EP and 3 full-length albums. They were known for their complex and heavy sound, as well as their outspoken anti-religious and political views. On March 15th, 2013, Gaza announced that the band had ceased to exist.

At some moments, Gaza were nearly as overwhelming in their rage and misanthropy as Khanate or Today Is The Day, with all instruments (vocals included) howling out in mad agony at the world around them.

Of course, all artists respond to their environment, but this band was one of the lucky few that could express the abyss of human emotion through channels that an audience can respect for its eloquent musicality as much as its raw energy. Rather than relying solely on the traditional array of so-called heavy techniques – blastbeats, breakdowns, pinch harmonics, extreme dissonance, etc. – Gaza drew deeply from wells across the entire community to resourcefully come up with some tricks of their own.

Gaza shared members with Bird Eater.

    Their lyrics fucking blow, it sounds like something some Che Guevara loving 16 year old "2deep4u" pseudo-anarchist would write about from watching MSNBC soundbites [2] I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. But yeah, the music makes up for the stupidity of their lyrics.

    \/ \/ \/ \/ This was the first and only time anyone on the internet heard anything about any accusations against Jon. The evidence lies on the accuser. She said she had evidence, she then said she wouldn't show it, then said if she did show it then it wouldn't convince anyone and that everyone who doesn't immediately side with her is a rape apologist. I wish more atheists would figure out you should be skeptical of everything, but that pretty much goes out the window with people who have tumblr accounts. For all we know she was telling the truth, but if she was she pretty much did everything she shouldn't have done to bring "justice". Jon seemed like a great guy. Almost everyone who met him or talked to him feels the same way. Maybe you know more than me, but I looked at the accuser's tumblr posts and saw no reason to trust her story with no evidence. There's no proof they actually have even been in the same room together. No proof they've even texted/messaged each other.

    @betweencolors it was a bit more than just an "accusation" dude kinda had a reputation for that sort of stuff... not saying that I am fully aware of the entire situation or close with any of the members of the band, just sharing some scene gossip with you homie.
