Over the last couple years, Connecticut techdeath band Formless have made some waves on the Internet, even garnering praise from Decrepit Birth’s Matt Sotelo and Greg Macklin (bassist for Jeff Loomis).
That’s pretty fucking impressive.
Formless released a three song demo in 2010, which featured 20 minutes of some masterful Arsis/Decrepit Birth/Dissection worship, but managed to find their own style in the process. The spastic leads of guitarists Ken Bullard and Annie Grunwald weave their way into your brain, putting songwriting over flashy, wanking guitar work while vocalist Kevin Narowski iced the cake with his low gutturals.
Off the heels of a massively successful Kickstarter campaign, the band hit the studio with a full lineup, unlike the demo.
The band is rounded out by bassist Craig Breitsprecher (Engraved, Archaic Decapitator) and drummer Jake Shields.
