Formed in Toronto, Canada during the spring of 2010, BIBLICAL is the sound of mountains splitting and oceans parting. Uniting members of THE ILLUMINATI, THE BICYCLES and THE OLD SOUL, BIBLICAL is a ferocious beast of a band that deftly reconciles Motörhead swagger with Bad Seeds dread.
Their fierce live show has earned festival and touring slots with heavy artists such as Kyuss, Death From Above 1979, The Sword, Red Fang, Danko Jones, Fucked Up, and Howlin' Rain.
Their debut self-titled EP offers a thoroughly satisfying listen that will delight any fan of guitar-based rock music with filthy tones that move between tense, fast-paced burners and sludgy organ-drenched breakdowns. Pop Matters called the release “a grand debut” while stoner aficionados The Obelisk praised the band’s sound, noting “BIBLICAL‘s swagger is definitely their own.”
But that was just a preview of the epic jams to come. In March 2014, New Damage Records released BIBLICAL’s debut LP Monsoon Season to unanimous acclaim from rock and metal press. Lauded by Pitchfork as a “climactic, Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar” Monsoon Season is a thunderous opus of haunted psychedelia. While punishingly heavy, the album is cloaked in texture and dynamics, casting aside the tropes of hard rock in favour of atmosphere, tension and palpable dread.
