Biography

“Our thought from day one was to make heavy fucking metal, stuff that’s brutal, but still catchy,” says Invocation of Nehek guitarist and Co-founding member Robb Cyr (Steve Pianka being the other founding member). “We are all hardcore kids in one form or another, so we still wanted to have breakdowns, but we also wanted to be a little different” Mission accomplished. These self-proclaimed “hardcore kids,” since their formation in Hartford , Connecticut , in 2001, have transformed into one of the Northeast’s most diverse and utterly explosive new bands.

Discovered by Unearth guitarist Ken Susi when Invocation of Nehek played The Pogo Club in Norwich CT, the quintet accepted an invitation to record a demo with Susi, a move that would soon land them their deal with Prosthetic Records and lead to the release of their Susi-produced, self-titled debut. Getting to that point wasn’t easy, however. A succession of different band members made it difficult to move forward and, before finding bassist Tim Leonard, ION played a number of shows (including the one at The Pogo Club) without a bassist.

When they found the chemistry, it was undeniable—a crushing, completely brutal collision of extreme styles coalescing into a sound that almost has a physical impact on the listener. “We knew we wanted to be a little different,” says Cyr. “We figured our influences were so diverse that we would write music that fit in with a lot of metal, hardcore and metalcore, but at the same time we wanted that little something extra to separate us.”

    This brings back cool memories...their debut was the first relatively underground metal disc I ever bought (cut me some slack, I'm young!!). And in relation to the previous shout, TTEOTD get new members in them more than gay porn stars...what is so fucking difficult about getting a relatively stable line-up?!

    Well now two of the members are in TTEOTD. The vocalist and drummer. TTEOTD is on the path to their downfall though. Theres nothing that will save them.

    it's a shame that they never came out with anything other than their self-titled album. this album has definitely got some quality material within it's tracklisting.

    박진감있게 달려주는 멜로딕데스양식을 한껏 접목한 노래가 그닥 많지 않다는 것이 아쉬웠다. 즐길락말락의 경계의 울타리를 가볍게 넘어서는 노래가 적다. 조금만 더 탐미적이었더라면..
