Facemelting Historical Chaos Metal from Canada
"Our name was derived from the word EPOCH which means: In the fields of chronology and periodization, an epoch is an instant in time chosen as the origin of a particular era. The "epoch" then serves as a reference point from which time is measured. Time measurement units are counted from the epoch so that the date and time of events can be specified unambiguously.
When we came up with the name we were thinking to ourselves about the sun's cycle and states and the epoch's it goes through in a period of 2000 years, and the full count on the Mayan calendar, 2 different examples of epoch's.
We decided to ad the Æ because we thought it was more original and we liked how it sounded and looked. Now it is a word that is truly ours.
Formed in September 2012 by Cannibal Christ (Ex Moltar, Invitation to Die, Newborn Genocide, Kynesys) and Brett MacIntosh (Ex Breaching the Peace, Columbian Necktie) after meeting through a mutual friend. Sharing a mutual interest for varied forms of heavy music and came to realize the amount of written material present between them. After recruitingDrummer Greg Carvalho, and Guitar Player Bobby Chounramany (Ex Breaching the Peace), the band quickly adapted to the individual styles of each member and have been writing for the first "Concept" EP to be released at an undisclosed date.
Soon to be Booking Shows!!!"
