We are William/ Kenaima/ Triton/ The Leshen/ Boar Worship
Formed in 2017, We Are William is the brainchild of Cameron Johnston and Samm Barrett formally of Northern Colorado Progressive Death Metal band Retract. We AreWilliam aims to mend the gap between their favorite genres and produce a unique sound not easily pinned down by one single label.The band prepares well balanced compositions, theatrical backing tracks, powerful lead vocals and energetic live performances. We Are William has nestled itself in the Progressive Metal category for now but their are no limits to what future albums may have in store for their fans.
Is a heavy metal outfit from Northern Colorado with influences spanning doom, death, stoner, thrash, and sludge.
Started as an experimental side project for members Myke Fedyk and Kirk Alberts. They were looking to step away from the traditional rock band architecture and experiment with new sonic textures and arrangements. Unhindered by the confines of standard pop music arrangements, ego and expectations the two have forged a crunchy, melodic, post-rock/metal sound. The intentional lack of vocals and band’s use of visuals in live performances creates an immersive experience and encourages the listener to create their own story.
Is a two-piece band that currently operates in Denver, CO. Bolstered by heavily amplified guitar progressions (Nick Angelo) and a destructively forceful rhythm section (D. Brigman), the duo creates a dissonant hybrid of many metal-influenced genres while maintaining a sincerely hardbitten approach to their craft.
Rooted in DIY ethos, the band originally formed in 2009 while members were living in Albuquerque, NM. Year one spawned “The Decline and Fall of the Christian Empire”, a scornful five song EP - documenting a brief yet ferocious period of the band’s existence as a four-piece. The 2009 EP was self-recorded/released and available free of charge at shows. After some time and various line-up incarnations, Mike Day recorded the “Pro Death” EP at Knife City Studios in Albuquerque. Shortly after that release, Boar Worship relocated to Oakland, CA in 2012 and began performing as a collaborative effort between Nick and Joseph Angelo. They recorded a willfully obscure “self-titled” EP which was released in 2015 as a double 7” clear lathe-cut, limited to 25 copies.
The present line-up is a raw and direct display of years devoted to creating unapologetic music that nods to their past-lives and aggressively claws at the days ahead - without sympathy or desire to adopt a formula exhausted by an over-saturated/grossly-imitated scene.
