Meek Is Murder
MEEK IS MURDER was the side project of MIKE KELLER that started back in 2005. Over the next few years Keller toured in bands NAME (Lifeforce Records) followed by THE RED CHORD (Metal Blade Records) but continued to work on Meek in his limited spare time. At the end of 2007, Keller completed MOSQUITO EATER, the first Meek is Murder EP, containing 9 songs and clocking in at just under 13 minutes.
In late 2008, Keller parted ways with The Red Chord and took a break from touring to focus on Meek is Murder. Keller knew FRANK GODLA (also drummer of EMPYREON) from his work on METAL INJECTION and found bass player SAM BRODSKY by good old fashioned auditioning. "It was a slow and sometimes painful process of tryouts, but I know I found the right dudes."
Since 2009, Meek is Murder has been steadily building a fan base in and around New York City and is currently writing a full length record, to be recorded later this year.
Cleanteeth was formed in early 2008 as an experimental noise project, and have since evolved into a crushing array of doom metal and electronic noise. Influenced by the likes of Karp, Butthole Surfers, Godflesh, My Bloody Valentine and armed with more full stacks than band members, the four-piece takes a wall of sound approach to creating its bastard blend of metal, noise, and rock.
