|The Browning is a four-piece metal/electronica band comprised of veterans from the Dallas, Texas and Kansas City, Missouri music scenes. The group is known for fusing deathcore, hardcore, and other various elements of metal with heavy electronic influences including hardstyle, techno, and trance. The band has been labelled everything from deathtronica, cybergrind, and electrocore to trancecore, ravecore, and technocore, however one thing remains certain; The Browning appeals to a broad spectrum of music fans from all walks of life.
The Browning was originally founded by vocalist/programmer, Jonny McBee, in 2007 as a solo project. Shortly after forming, rapper Matt Keck began contributing to the project and the group quickly gained recognition in the Missouri music scene and underground Internet music scene via Myspace, YouTube, and other popular social networking and music sharing websites. The Browning would become notorious for their avid use of rap beats, dance music, and European style techno compositions combined with the heavier components of metal and hardcore.
In 2010, the project would relocate to Dallas, Texas to seek out additional musicians and become a full-fledged band. It was during this time that Noah Robertson (drums) and Brian Cravey (guitar) Dallas, Texas musicians and band-mates who had recently moved to Hollywood, California, would respond to a CraigsList.com posting and would eventually make their way back to Texas to join The Browning. Soon after this addition, Matt Keck would decide to leave the band to pursue other creative interests and Missouri native, Jesse Glidewell (bass), would relocate to Texas to round out the music project and complete the line-up.
The Browning, now a complete band for the first time, rigorously began writing all new material and in the fall of 2010, self-produced a 10 track, self-titled album, "The Browning", and booked their first tour themselves. Wielding a unique, cutting-edge sound and a fierce, do-it-yourself attitude, The Browning was approached by UK based metal label, Earache Records, during their first stint on the road as a full band. Shortly after completing their first tour, The Browning would ink a worldwide recording contract with Earache Records and soon after sign a deal with Outerloop Management as well.
In March of 2011, the band travelled to Random Awesome! Studios in Bay City, Michigan to record their debut, full-length album for Earache Records, entitled "Burn This World", which is due out for release in October of 2011. The album was mixed by Cameron Mizell. The band plans to tour relentlessly in support of this latest release, in hopes of broadening their fan base and reaching a larger audience.
