Scientist / Bio

look for our vinyl pressing on HELL COMES HOME RECORDS this summer!!!

Scientist is an experimental noise metal act from Chicago, Illinois formed in 2011. Scientist exists from the "ashes" of such groups as Profound Lore artist YAKUZA, (still active), FIREISBORN and RAISED ON ZENITH featuring Eric Plonka (guitar/vox), Justin Cape (drums) and Patrick Auclair (bass). With a wide range of influences, Scientist's goal to compose music that challenge them artistically while remaining accessible to their audience has been an interesting journey. Starting originally as a two piece band by Plonka and Cape (and having actual results) and having played many, many shows for over a year, they then decided to add Auclaire for that missing "something". Refreshed and looking forward, and having just recorded with Sanford Parker (Buried at Sea, Nachtmystium, Corrections House) featuring guest appearances by Stavros Giannopoulos from Atlas Moth, Bruce Lamont from Yakuza, Jeff Lyman from Dead Sheriff and Sanford Parker, their debut CD is out NOW!
