Biography

Boston, Massachusetts, United States (2003 – present)

Junius is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, United States that formed in 2003. The band is composed of lead vocalist and guitarist Joseph E. Martinez, guitarist Michael Repasch-Nieves, bassist Joel Munguia and drummer Dana Filloon. The band’s name is taken after Junius, the pseudonym of a political writer who lived during the late 18th century.

Junius’s first releases were two EPs on Radar Recordings, Forcing Out the Silence and Blood is Bright. In 2007, they reissued the EPs on a single self-titled CD. This album was also released on Radar Recordings.

Their first full-length, The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist, was released on November 10, 2009 through the label The Mylene Sheath in the United States and Make My Day Records in Europe. The album is inspired by the writings of theorist Immanuel Velikovsky and took the group nearly three years to complete. On May 20, 2011, it was announced that Junius would be covering the song Firehead by Hum. The song was included in the cover album Songs of Farewell and Departure: A Tribute to HUM, which was released on September 6, 2011. Junius released a split EP with the band Rosetta which contained the track A Dark Day With Night on September 27, 2011.

    I like how they named themselves after the anonymous polecmicist Junius, who lived in the eighteenth century.

    Days of the Fallen Sun is actually good, but I couldn't enjoy it more because of the terrible, TERRIBLE mixing. It just not fits in my ears, the sounds of the instruments are so out of place.

    @veitie: blueneck. "the fallen host" by blueneck might fit perfectly to your need for atmospheric and apocalyptic music.. it's the heaviest one by blueneck and has a cathartic effect on my emotions. besides, all stuff by this band is highly recommended!

    if the band's concept beyond "the martyrdom of a catastrophist" is at least close to my ideas and interpretations concerning this album, than it's one of the most brilliant and saddest albums of all time for me.....

    You guys do realize that Days of the Fallen Sun has 2 old songs on it, right? Also, it's not mastered properly. The sound is awful.

    The song A Dark Day With Night makes me think of the story Nightfall by Isaac Asimov. It's not just the obvious notion of darkness but the feeling of inpending catastrophe and the madness that ensues. Has anyone else read the story and felt a connection?
