Meka Nism is a metal band that is comprised of exquisitely talented musicians that seamlessly work in unison to create some of the most elaborate, unique and eclectic music on the planet. They have one goal in mind; to rock audiences all over the world with their music. Members include, Meka (vocalist/lead and the core of the overall direction of the band), Reed Tyack (drummer), Alvin Bauer (bass), Bobby Keller (lead guitar), and Brian Manowitz (rhythm guitar). Meka Nism was formed back in 2006 and started out as Meka Nism and Her Rusty Tears. Meka was the former guitar player of Orlando punk legends Dirty Barby and the front person for Angel Autopsy, who enchanted audiences for years.
Florida based Hidden Records quickly noticed her as being a unique talent and put her on their independent label. In 2006, “Mad to Love” was recorded by Meka Nism and her Rusty Tears at the Hidden Records Studio, an album which has been recognized as an exceptional artistic achievement of great beauty and passion. "Break," the second track from the album was the WINNER of the Songwriter's Showcase of America's (SSA) Best Experimental Song of the Year – 2006. Meka was also SSA's Solo Artist of the Month - January 2007. Explosive with enthusiasm, Meka made a scorching impact on the Central Florida music scene. She has a strong, loyal fan base around the United States, in areas like San Diego, New York, Philadelphia and Atlanta. Meka Nism continued to evolve over the next few years.
In 2010, with the return of Meka from a stint in Japan, Reed Tyack, Alvin Bauer, Bobby Keller, and Brian Manowitz were added to the group in an effort to try and grow the immense power that Meka unleashes both sonically and visually. In March of 2013, the debut EP “The Dance at the End of the World” was released as the band’s first collaborative collection of songs as a unit. The band also released their first music video for the single “Bring the Sun Back” in October of 2013.
Meka Nism’s debut EP “Dance at the End of the World” is proof that new sounds, new excitement and new frontiers have not only been explored but have been claimed as their own unique voice in the music industry. From its onset it will blast you with power and take you through a musical journey of epic transformation. “The theme of this EP is based off of a world that is destroyed, desolate and in dismay”, states Meka. “It is meant to uplift spirits to a higher potential out of a negative situation and bring them to the light”. The idea of playing their heavy metal music as the world comes to an end is the ultimate triumph, which was based on last year’s prediction of the world coming to an end. It is so masterfully arranged and recorded that it makes your heart skip a beat. Leave it to Meka Nism to bridge that gap between the now and the possibilities that await them, creating what no other band has created before.
