Formed in January 2011, Chris Hoag, Josh Reynolds and James Scutella wanted to start jamming again. Previously we had been in a band together, Killdozer (Not the country act) with long time friend Brian Kavelish on bass. After the band split up in 2009 we were left not knowing what would happen or if we would play again. Time passed and by January of this year we decided to get together and start an instrumental metal band. The music and connection was so strong we felt that we didn't need vocals. With a two guitar powerhouse and drums, we were left with an open space for bass. Unfortunately Brian was unavailable due to joining with local metal greats Cryptic Demise, now known as Gelatin Skeleton. However our friend Austin Gabbard just happened to move back to Erie from Buffalo, NY. He was very passionate about the music and joined the band. Needless to say he fit in to Harmonic Desolation perfectly and the rest is history. We have played a multiple shows with many respected acts such as Gelatin Skeleton, Sacred 13, Beyond Silence, Victims...Aren't We All and Dethlehem. Our first demo was recorded in October 2011 and are going to be recording our first album over the winter of 2012/2013. We want to bring music back that is heavy, soulful and isn't overproduced like most music of today. No matter what type of music you like, check us out. .
