ABOUT SISYPHEAN CONSCIENCE--
[Sisyphean Conscience ; A mind in constant struggle]
"Bottom Line: I see no reason why Sisyphean Conscience wouldn't fit right in on a label like Sumerian Records. This style of music is obviously popular and these guys pull it off without the gimmicks. I won't be surprised when they are out there touring with the genres heavy hitters in the near future." - Lambgoat.com
Sisyphean Conscience brings a new face and a new name to Portland's flourishing tech metal game. With their eyes set on success, these ambitious childhood friends intend to stop at nothing to accomplish their goals as they attempt to make their mark on metal. Combining catchy melodies and epic harmonies with heavy grooves and crushing brutality, Sisyphean Conscience compliments many aspects of metal, forming them into a unique sound that can't be described as anything but their own.
"... and after witnessing their sets, one has to ask just how in the hell Ænimus and Sisyphean Conscience remain unsigned entities? Relapse or Metal Blade should come a-calling on both these bands immediately! First things first, as it was time to meet up with the progressively technical artistry of Sisyphean Conscience. Stumble upon the pronunciation band name if you must, but this Portland, Oregon based outfit is sure to leave you breathless. Fans of acts such as Veil Of Maya and Periphery are destined to uncover a lifelong favorite when encountering the chaotic reveries of Sisyphean Conscience. Performing selections from their independent release entitled Eternalites, it was abundantly clear that these talented musicians from the Pacific Northwest were mesmerizing the Cobalt Café attendees. The superb, tighter than hell musicianship was courtesy of Taylor Gorman on vocals, Blaine Brun on guitars, Austin Haag on bass, and Garrett Haag on drums. When the closing refrains of Claptrap engulfed the room with its relentless refrains, one could easily see that Sisyphean Conscience had conquered the City Of Angels."- HighWire Daze - Los Angeles, CA
