Pillars Of Creation / Bio

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, Unearth, Sepultura, Deicide, Marty Friedman, Hate Eternal, Vital Remains, Nile, Belphegor, Kataklysm and Morbid Angel.

Already a local favorite in the city of Las Vegas with help from regular airplay on KOMP 92.3's Homegrown Show Pillars Of Creation has become a regional act by performing in 7 cities across 4 neighboring states along with booking a mini tour in March of the new year. Additionally, Pillars Of Creation are set to release their highly anticipated single "Deified" along with their debut music video in March 2016. 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 2016. 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.
