Exhilarating, white-knuckle, belligerent, formidable, aggressive, elating, powerful, and stimulating... with a touch of breathtaking tenderness...
Blaine Taylor (Vocals), KJ Taylor (Guitarist), and Rayne Magruder (Bassist) initially formed Teratoma in 2003. The native Mesa, AZ founding members realized the full potential of the group with the addition of Matt Gehrman (Percussion) in 2005. Although the members are classically trained, after experiencing Teratoma, listeners and fans (aka Teratoma Babies) will observe a masterful balance of rock music influenced by albums such as Undertow (Tool), Wisconsin Death Trip (Static-X), and Facelift (Alice in Chains). This unique and distinctive blend creates a forceful and potent sound for a multi-genre fan base to savor.
Teratoma has recently released their debut album "Self-Tiled" in the spring of 2012. Taking pride in their work, the album is written and produced by Teratoma, LLC in its entirety.
Performing in venues (headlining and supporting) throughout the metro Phoenix area Teratoma has continually strived for perfection while provoking the fence-sitters and are prepared for any challenge. Sharing the stage with national acts such as Helmet, Tantric, Adema, Burn Halo, Mower, Bionic Jive, and Veins of Jenna has only fueled that endeavor.
