{intake}ca is the result of six musical journeymen’s relentless pursuit to craft something more than a song. Frustrated with the jaded market of Southern California’s inundated musical landscape, Robb Sackett , Michael Head , Scott Ramsay , Jason Smolchuck , Joseph Estrada , and Brian “EZ” Balderas all got together to create a new chaotic sound in late 2009. With all members having worked in various projects that resulted in little movement, frontman Robb Sackett explained the inevitable collaboration, “Our lineup consists of the best musicians we could steal from other local acts. These bands had such awesome, talented people in their ranks and just sat on it.” Fusing an incendiary combination of aggressive metal and progressive electronica, {intake}ca has collectively managed to break through the glass ceiling of creative limitation.

Since its inception, the all too familiar tribulations that come with balancing life and artistic expression have forced the band’s hand, leading to necessary line-up changes, writer’s block, and an eventual revitalization. Having shared the stage with the likes of Snot, Static-X, (hed)p.e., Ill Nino, Human Waste Project, Body Count, and In This Moment, to name a few, {intake}ca’s ambitious take on traditional drop tuning and guttural vocals has earned the band a healthy reputation among some of the industry’s most respected contributors.
