The Aberration / Bio

"We will Eat you Alive"-The Aberration. They consist of Jim Cole (drummer) and Travis O'Connell (guitarist) a two piece power house, get off your ass and move band from Chester, VT. Formed in 2007 in a filthy, four walled cement basement, where most bands start. Beginning with progressive guitar riffs from Travis in a low, mid level gain with slicing highs sound playing in standard E tuning and dropped D. Playing guitar was meant for this guy with insane chops and left to right hand pattern work that incredibly grind through the amps. As this is going on Jim is throwing down a drum beat like hes playing guitar riffs on the skins. Double kick foot work like a programed robot set for over drive. Snare hits like a bull whip and symbol hits to die for. Listening to and evolving with all types of music and breathing heavy loud tunes these guys were meant to write for all music lovers and musicians. Practicing and gigging for a while and moved to a shack in the woods of Chester, VT The Aberration found a bassist and vocalist to join and to record there first demo called The Dinosaurs Have Yet To Come released in 2008. Listening to this demo opens you up to a new vision of writing. It's more like there writing stories rather then songs. With a vocalist and bassist on board they hit the stages and let the music speak for itself with amazing stage presence and communication with the crowds. You can feel the emotion and see a delicate but furiously heart pounding dedication and obvious addiction to the music from these guys. After undisclosed information the vocalist didn't want to play music any more so he left the band for all good reasons. They kept to the grind playing shows and writing new material as a three piece playing instrumentals for about two years. The bassist decided to leave the band and go another way in life for all good reasons. So back to a two piece The Aberration took a break and tried to find replacements for the vocalist and the bassist. All efforts failed miserably but they kept looking. After finding a vocalist to work with for about a year it just didn't work out again so The Aberration decided to stay a two piece ripping up the stage with instrumentals for all musicians and music lovers to this day! Come to a show say hey drink and beer and get in the pit with us!
