PRECIPHIST formed in 1998 through a number of jam sessions with mutual friends. Founding members Tim and Tim decided to take it to the next level and created PRECIPHIST.
Playing parties, clubs and any gig they could find PRECIPHIST honed their sound into a unique blend of melodic metal with an edge effect. During that time a number of guitarists and drummers came and went. “We were lucky to have them all.”
With an arsenal of cover tunes ranging from Danzig to Three Doors Down and over an albums worth of originals PRECIPHIST has become a mainstay of the New Hampshire club circuit. Tim Rand’s powerfully unique voice, Tim Perin and Mike Woodside's thundering rhythm section, make for an exciting live show and a band that should soon be a household name in rock circles.

Some of PRECIPHISTS highlights include opening for RA, POPULATION ONE and Joey Belladonna (ANTHRAX). They also headlined THE POST ROAST in the summer of 2004 helping to raise over $14,000 for The Lahey Clinic cancer research; The Burlington MA "relay for life" (2008) raising 58,000; Walmart "raising the roof" for Children's Hospital (2007,2008,2009) raising over $10,000.
PRECIPHIST is now in the process of mixing down their self titled album due out in the spring of 2010. PRECIPHIST has ample PA, Lighting, and stage to accommodate large clubs as well as the intimate small rooms and outdoor events. TIME TO ROCK!
