The forceful SHROUD EATER formed January 2009 in the sweltering heat of Miami, FL. The high temperatures must serve as a catalyst for the trio's distinctive cave-man style powerhouse drumming and sub-sonic low end fury, thick aggressive, angular guitar riffs and raw, throaty yelling.
Within 6 months of their formation, they recorded and independently released a 3 song demo EP (mixed & mastered by Torche's Jonathan Nuñez). Drawing comparisons to Kylesa, The Jesus Lizard, High on Fire, Helmet, and others, the EP is being hailed as an unorthodox hybrid of AmRep style noise-rock meets sludgy, stoner-metal fury - a welcome respite from current warmed over cliches, and establishing the trio's style as unique, disconcerting and massive - a definitive band to look out for in the coming year.
Summer of 2010 saw the band returning to the studio to record an anticipated full-length, titled "ThunderNoise." After a month of recording in the sizzling Florida summer in a warehouse with no AC unit to speak of, the trio embarked on tour to lay waste to the eastern seaboard, passing through Georgia, North Carolina and up through New York.
Shroud Eater is currently set to release their full-length album "ThunderNoise" in January of 2011, with plans to tour the east coast as well as a string of shows out west in the spring.
