Komondor might sound like Eyehategod covering Boston but playing the songs backwards, or maybe their music sounds more like Daydream Nation with all the good parts taken out & played (again) backwards but slower with a man yelling on top of it. Better yet maybe Komondor sounds like Venom playing Captain Beefheart. Any way you slice it, Komondor is a high quality noise rock band.
Komondor began to form in October of 2008 when Big Lazlo (bass & throat) decided to finally act on his desire to put together a new American noise rock band incorporating key elements of heavy, extreme, and idiosyncratic music as exemplified by such acts as Captain Beefheart, Sonic Youth, the Unsane, Eyehategod, and the Melvins. Big Lazlo first found Phil (drums), who was starting up a new post-hardcore/metal band with a local vocalist. Then Big Lazlo found the Mawt (guitars) who was happy to play as demented as needed with help from his experience in indie-rock and jazz. The original vocalist left the band, which was okay because Big Lazlo wanted to sing all the songs anyway. Big Lazlo had also found another guitarist but the guitarist quit right before the band recorded their first demo. Since then it has been just Big Lazlo, Phil, & the Mawt. None of them are kids and they all work full time. They play big, brutal, and twisted music with integrity and sincerity. They are making the music that they would like to hear.
In 2010 Komondor released their first album entitled “a giant is coming & the giant will kill you.”
