Formed in the spring of 2009, THE DEED OF MARTYRS are a thrash/groove metal band based out of Fort Collins and Northern Colorado. Influenced by styles ranging from older thrash metal to new age thrash/hardcore metal, with a touch of groove and rock, each member of (D.O.M.) brings unique talent and energy to the table.
JEREMY YAKEL's guitar style mixes thrash/groove metal riffs with some influences of Tool and Pink Floyd. Jeremy designs his riffs to mellow you out, pick you up, then drop you on our face, figuratively speaking. Jeremy's unique writing style will catch you off guard and grab your attention. Bassist BRYAN BULL contributes to the low-end sound with heavy and sold rhythm, but Bryan isn't a bass player with the sole job of just keeping the low-end. Bryan has an influence that comes from the groovy riffs of funk/punk and steps up as an important factor in the sound. Vocals by MARSHALL HOLLEN deliver lyrics, cadences and hooks that are powerfully supercharged with high energy, sheer brutality and distinguishably stands out to the listener's hearing senses.
In their career of live performances, THE DEED OF MARTYRS have been slotted direct support on quite a few shows for bands such as the national touring act known as ALLEGAEON, who is signed to Metal Blade Records. They have also been slotted direct support on a hand full of shows for the international touring band HAVOK, signed by Candlelight Records. (D.O.M) has also played a few shows with Colorado heavy hitters, ARCANIUM and SKINNED. Other national touring acts that THE DEED OF MARTYRS have played shows with include, WRETCHED (Victory Records) seen on the 2014 summer Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour and HUNTRESS (Napalm Records) seen on the 2013 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour.
Although THE DEED OF MARTYRS are currently in between drummers, this has not slowed down the original members, Jeremy, Marshall and Bryan, from expanding and evolving their sound and style range. They are currently working with Lionel White, who is the very talented drummer for the popular Denver, CO band known as SANITY'S EDGE. Lionel will be filling in on drums for THE DEED OF MARTYRS until a permanent drummer is in place.
