Alekhine's Gun is a heavy metal outfit from Brooklyn, New York that blends elements of thrash, black metal and death metal with subtle undertones and nods to New York hardcore of the 90's and all things extreme. In this unique combination they have unlocked a captivating sound and style and created a feel that is notable and recognizably their own.
In 2012, AG released a four-track EP entitled "MEDITATIONS IN WRATH" with Jeff Martinez (Desolate) on guitar, Dan Martinez (King Hell) on bass, and Jessica Pimentel "The Crusher" (Everybody Gets Hurt/Desolate) on Vocals. This NYC veteran lineup delivered a greatly received, high-energy sonic assault with their debut release. Their music is laced with a barrage of head-banging riffs and groove, colored with dark harmony and accented by relentless, technical drumming. Adding to all of this are fierce, in your face vocals and lyrics steeped in the profound wisdom of ancient Buddhist texts, vibrant imagery, and raw emotional honesty. Alekhine's Gun brings you a primal, transcendent, electric energy. This fury is not only felt in recordings but wherever they go as they have been marked as being stand out, vigorous, dynamic performers who hold their own in any live venue alongside world renowned bands. Alekhine's Gun is a force to be reckoned with. They bring to you heart and passion; Insight and meditation; Wrath and spirit.
