Hailing from Buffalo NY, Pollock is an ambient metal/hard rock band with intense rhythms and unique time signatures. The vocals consisting of elements from poetry, the occult, and mythology make a blend of melodies that envelope the listener. Their music is accompanied by their performance which is used to represent the idea of bringing an art form to life.
Pollock joined the Buffalo music scene in July, 2005. Since then, the band has procured a faithful fan base, toured the Northeast, and released multiple albums. The band hit the Buffalo music scene hard with the Valentine EP (released in October 2010) and spent the following two years opening for national acts and touring regionally. In the late spring of 2012, the band released a follow up EP, La Fin Du Monde, which landed them a first place award in the loud rock/metal category of WBNY’s Western NY Music Awards. On January 19th of this year, Pollock released their much anticipated 12 track LP, “The Moonlight Show”. Awash in a sea of cerebral percussion and emotional swells, Pollock continues to bring the heavy and huge sound that has become the band's trademark. The ever changing mood of the songs is enhanced by layers of strings and percussion; a unique sound that is simultaneously dark, uplifting, heavy, and like a dream.
