URIZEN is an electronic-influenced heavy rock band based in Ft. Worth, Texas. The band was formed in early 2003 by brothers Thomas and Daniel Drinnen (guitar/vocals and keyboards, respectively) and drummer Julio Escamilla. Bassist Rustin Luther joined in 2012. URIZEN has released three albums; 2005’s “autocratopolis," 2007’s “Universe EP,” and 2010's "Universe:Red," as well as a remix album, "8-Bit Universe," and the 2012 single "Boxmakers."
URIZEN is well known for their entertaining and highly involved stage shows, featuring the band dressed in full red-and-white armor-style space suits. Other features of their stage show include the appearance of a giant, 8-foot-tall URIZEN Robot; a 12-foot inflatable cycloptic goo monster; a custom-created silicone conjoined twin creature; and much more!
URIZEN’s musical style employs the use of heavy, distorted guitars; frantic, speedy drums; and clean, rock-style vocals. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of URIZEN’s sound is the dominant presence of synth and keyboards, specifically the use of orchestral strings and 8-bit Nintendo-style electronic sounds.
