Biography

The Abattoir Murders was a metal band from Charleroi, Pennsylvania, who formed in late 2002.

At the beginning the band was called The Robot Hum (band). Guitarists Matthew Hornfeck and Alex Drizos met Joshua Bakaitus of Charleroi, Pennsylvania through mutual friends. The three began practicing together in Bakaitus’ basement experimenting with music along the lines of Saetia (band), Pittsburgh’s The Ezekial (band), and The Locust (band). Immediately following Bakaitus’ entry to the band he introduced to Drizos and Hornfeck, Anthony Lazzari of Charleroi, Pennsylvania to fill the position as full time singer. After month’s of drummer searching the four stumbled upon Jesse Meredith formerly of The Ezekial to fill the spot. Jesse lasted in the band for a little over one month.

In 2003 the band picked up drummer Paul Georgulis formerly of The Victory Year (band) who would remain the bands steady drummer until August of 2004 when Georgulis left the band to pursue his interest in religion. Around that time is when Matt Hornfeck left the band also to pursue his schooling. Although it had been attempted many times, the second guitarist spot was never filled after Matt’s departure. On August 28, 2004 The Abattoir Murders played an acoustic set in Charleroi, PA at the Charleroi VFW with Fear Before The March of Flames. This event is when the band met their final drummer, Jon Collins. At that time Collins was playing drums with the now defunct There Were Many of Bentleyville, Pennsylvania. Shortly after Jon’s entry to the band he was forced to leave There Were Many which would settle to become bad blood between both bands for years.
