Hailing from the neon graveyard that is Las Vegas NV, with a vigorous blend of power, attitude, masterful songwriting and impeccable musicianship, Pillars Of Creation is a genre-spanning heavy metal trio.
Incorporating the influences of bands such as Death, Opeth, Pantera, Megadeth, Nevermore and Mastodon, POC maintains a clear and distinct sound that transcends the stereotype of any metal sub-genre.
Forming in 2012, Pillars Of Creation soon found themselves recording their demo at The Tone Factory studios with producer Vinnie Castaldo. Eager to promote their brand of metal, they hit the stage that December. The well-received introduction of Tom Madera (guitars), Bryan Walker (vocals, drums) and Mathew Whaley (vocals, bass) by audiences was a powerful affirmation of the sum of their hard work, passion and years of live experience. Gaining notoriety with the unholy marriage of songwriting, technique, business sense and a vice tight yet comedic live performance, they secured opening slots with national acts including Adrenaline Mob, Dark Tranquility, Mushroomhead, Exmortus, Landmine Marathon and Vital Remains (Nile, and Morbid angel will be added to this list in the coming months). With heavy airplay on local radio station KOMP’s Homegrown Show, POC was also given the opportunity to venture beyond the Vegas city limits and take part in Club Envy’s first ever, metal night in Mesquite, NV.
Already a local favorite in the city of Las Vegas, Pillars Of Creation is humbled but driven and poised to tour and make fans all over the world. Additionally, Pillars Of Creation are hard at work writing and perfecting new music for their inevitable debut EP. And while POC stays busy and focused on their brand, they are also putting together a local metal compilation called “NVO: New Vegas Order”, due out in 2014. The focus of the compilation is to build and connect a community of metal bands to help promote and work with each other. Aiming their creativity to further the Vegas metal scene as well as POC itself is the ultimate goal.
Pillars Of Creation is constantly looking and moving forward, making friends, fans and connections along the way.
