ABOUT OF MICE & MEN--
OM&M was founded by Austin Carlile, the original vocalist of Attack Attack, and bassist Jaxin Hall, an import from Auckland, New Zealand. The two recorded the demo "Seven Thousand Miles For What?" with close friends at Paper Tiger Studios in Columbus, Ohio. The two searched for other members for about a month when they came across Tino Arteaga, drummer of Lower Definition, and Phil Manansala, touring guitarist for A Static Lullaby. Austin and Jaxin moved to southern California to join up with the two, and began writing. OM&M has since been writing, and will head into the studio July 14th with Joey Sturgis to record their debut full length album, which will be in stores and online everywhere!
Rhythmic, Groove, Technical, Brutal, Captivating, Face Melting are all adjectives that do not even come close to touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to describing the sound, image and movement exploding right now out of Southern California. The source of this decibel shattering, mind-numbing, captivating phenomenon? Los Angeles metal outfit, VOLUMES.
VOLUMES are a collection of five young musicians coming from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz, classical, post-rock to rap and of course metal. VOLUMES eclectic tastes blend together to forge a creative bond between several types of genres that are worlds apart. The combination of their efforts results in fusions between intricate patterns, melodies, and progressive.. yet-not-to-be-overlooked-aggressive, straight to the point, metal. This particular blend of musical styles strives to find a balance between chaos and tranquility. Standing out in their genre is the fact that VOLUMES have two lead-vocalists who utilize their different ranges to create a layered, charismatic volatile sound which leave all listeners begging for more.
Having just signed on with MEDIASKARE RECORDS & OUTERLOOP MANAGEMENT, VOLUMES quickly released their unforgettable fan favorite EP titled: 'The Concept Of Dreaming'. Wasting no time, VOLUMES immediately begin work on their currently entitled debut full length "VIA" that hit #1 on iTunes Metal the first day. With their whole career starting to unfold, and the world ahead of them VOLUMES are not a band you want to overlook.. be forewarned.
To contribute a fresh sound to heavy music.
All songs were written, recorded, mixed, and produced by the band itself.
