A Sense Of Gravity

Combining searing riffs with powerful melodies, contemporary jazz harmony, polyrhythmic grooves, and virtuosic solos, A Sense of Gravity is dedicated above all to strong, musical composition and moving songwriting.

Founded in Seattle by guitarists David McDaniel and Brendon Williams in 2011, the two quickly began writing and recording their debut EP, which was released later that year. The EP was quick to attract attention both online and locally, and within a few months the band had filled its lineup with some of Seattle's best metal musicians, including keyboardist/guitarist Brandon Morris (ex-Collibus), drummer Peter Breene (ex-Arisen from Nothing), and vocalist C.J. Jenkins. Shortly after, the band recorded its first full-lineup track - a jazz-fusion/groove-metal cover of White Christmas for the 2011 Djentlemen's Club Christmas compilation. The musicians released their first single and most progressive track yet, Spectre, early the next year. 2012 saw A Sense of Gravity finalize their lineup by hiring Chance Unterseher (ex-Rowan) on bass and expand their presence in the local scene by playing shows all around Seattle, opening for numerous bands, including Threat Signal.

Drawing inspiration from metal classics and groundbreaking younger bands, without neglecting the rest of the musical spectrum, Omnerod developed an original identity by assembling a series of various concepts in a harmonious patchwork.

Visigoth

When the gods called for metal traditional and true, Visigoth answered. The year was 2010, and Jake Rogers allied his bardic magic with Lee Campana's six-string sorcery to forge a tribute to the old sound of heavy metal. Thus the demo Vengeance was born.

Its completion sent tremors throughout the salted wastes of the Salt Lake City underground, attracting the attention of powerful musical forces. Jamison Palmer slung his mighty axe over one shoulder and trudged his way through the ice and snow of this inhospitable realm, lending his soul-rending riffcraft to the legion. He was soon joined by the mystical bass groove thaumaturgies of Matt Brotherton and the unrelenting storm-throned siege of Mikey Treseder's furious drumming. Together, they became known as Visigoth.

A new skinsman, Boy van Ooijen, was found in January 2012 and Schizoid Lloyd became a six-piece band. Another transformation happened during the final recordings of the band's first fulllength album in December 2013 when Silas Baldur van Bezu replaced Daan Divendal on keys. Around the same time Schizoid Lloyd was contacted by Finnish label Blood Music (Emperor, Leprous, Strapping Young Lad), whose curiosity after listening to 'Virus' led them to inform about the upcoming album.
