Live music w/ Dispirit ~ Atriarch (Portland) ~ Alaric (Metal)

http://www.myspace.com/alaricalaricAlaric began in 2008 when 3 friends with similar interests decided to start a band which would thoroughly investigate the textures, energies and vibrations of dark, guitar-driven electric music influenced by the Post-Punk and Death Rock that they loved so much. These visionaries brought a lot of experience to the table. Drummer Jason Willer had been touring, recording and touring some more with British Punk legends the U.K. Subs from 2001 through 2006. Bassist and songwriter Rick Jacobus, childhood friend of Jason’s and former bassist in the two’s first band The Enemies began writing new material and soon approached their singer and lyricist of choice Shane Baker who spent several years touring the world in the infamous Oakland band Dead and Gone to fill the vocal position and fortunately he agreed. A few months and several unsuccessful guitar auditions later they convinced guitarist and fellow Death Rock freak Russ Kent to come and check it out and from the first chords they struck it was clear that the line up was now complete.
