Curse Of The North
Curse of the North is a no frills two piece metal band from Seattle, WA featuring members Christiaan Morris(Guitar/Vocals) and Patrick Taylor(Drums). Stripping away any unnecessary elements, and creating a big a sound with just two people. Curse draw inspiration from bands like Black Sabbath, early Metallica, Mastodon, The Sword and High on Fire. But with a live show inspired more from bands like Death from above 1979, or Big Business.
"We wanted to start a band that had the rawness of early Bay Area thrash, but with elements of some of the stoner rock bands we love." Says Christiaan Morris the bands guitarist/vocals. "Something that just focused on riffs, songs and rhythms but with just two people. I think there is something cool about limitations in art and music, it forces you to make choices."
Curse of the North released their Revelations EP in summer 2011 produced by Matt Bayles(Mastodon, The Sword, Botch) and are releasing their first full-length album September 2013.
