Curse Of The North is a heavy band from Seattle, WA featuring members Christiaan Morris(Guitar/Vocals) Nick Cates(Bass), and Patrick Taylor(Drums). After Christiaan and Patrick’s old band Black Houses had run its course in mid 2010, both members were looking to start the band they had always wanted to; a no frills stripped down metal band that focused on high energy riffs and rhythms. Adding the brutal and energetic bass playing of Nick Cates, they finally had all the elements for the current sound of Curse of the North. Curse of the North draws inspiration from bands like Black Sabbath, early Metallica, Mastodon, The Sword and High on Fire. Curse Of The North released their Revelations EP in summer 2011 produced by Matt Bayles(Mastodon, The Sword, Botch) and working on their first full-length album..
