Julius Seizure formed in November 2011, hailing from central and northern New Jersey, and is currently based out of Clifton, NJ. Julius Seizure strives to achieve the perfect balance between melody and brutality, with a sound that is wildly unpredictable yet carefully crafted. Comprised of the former members of some of New Jersey's most popular unsigned metal bands including Will Killmore, Simensis, and The Annealing, founding members Steve Toth (Guitars), Anthony Smeragliuolo (Guitars), Brian Daniell (Bass), and Kyle Wilson (drums) quickly got to work on their debut release. Within two months, the band had written and recorded 6 songs for its debut. The band recruited vocalist Yosef El after seeing an impressive a capella performance at legendary New Jersey venue Starland Ballroom.
The band released its debut EP "Beware the Ides of March" in June 2012. Produced by guitarist Steve Toth at the band's own studio, "Beware the Ides of March" was met with much critical acclaim and Julius Seizure quickly generated a devoted fan base with multiple U.S. tours in summer 2012. The debut single "Oxy(Generation)" and music video, directed by guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo received extensive airplay via Sirius/XM Liquid Metal, WSOU (the nation's largest terrestrial metal radio station) and many blogs, websites, and social media based features.
Vocalist Yosef El briefly left the band in 2012, and was replaced by Charles Corletta for the 2013 follow up EP "Trials". With Toth once again producing, "Trials" sees Julius Seizure pushing their sound to new heights. As with their debut record, "Trials" received tremendous support on Sirius/XM and WSOU, and the band continued to push forward with relentless gigging and promotion.
In December 2013, Yosef El rejoined the band with universal support from fans and friends, and Julius Seizure immediately began recording new material. The band has a packed schedule for 2014 with a constant outpour of new music, videos, and shows. Julius Seizure has established itself as a leader of the New Jersey metal scene, and 2014 will see the band achieve a new level of excellence.
