Biography

Biography

The Four Horsemen was formed in October, 2004, by guitarists, Jared and Matt Kiess in the most unsuspecting place for establishment of a thrash metal band – Stevensville, Montana. In these early stages the two focused on writing songs and played only a handful of shows with a tentative lineup.

The goal was (and remains) to write complex and melodic, yet heavy thrash metal pieces by combining catchy chorus and verse sections with intricate structures containing long instrumental passages. This method of songwriting provides music that catches the initial attention of the listener while also maintains staying power over time and provided the hallmark of the great 80’s thrashers’ success.

On April 1, 2005 The Four Horsemen took the first step in gaining a strong lineup with the acquisition of Joel Isaacs on Drums. Later in November of that same year, The Four Horsemen solidified the lineup with Aaron Gericke, a guitar player by trade, taking on bass duties. This new lineup enabled the band to expand its range of possible songs and finally play some of the more intricate pieces which had been in the works long before.

In early 2006 they recorded the initial demo, “The Rebirth of Thrash,” containing three of the first songs ever written. “Hell’s Hymn” got immediate airplay on the local metal station and their ensuing interview sparked the creation of a ongoing radio show in Missoula, MT dedicated to local music.
