Aggressive rhythmic vocals over heavy shredding guitar riffs and pounding beats; GENUFLECT is raw, powerful delivery.
The project was created by Drew Simollardes, lead singer of the band Reveille, who sold over two-hundred-thousand albums and toured on Ozzfest with Pantera, Soulfly and Disturbed, and who toured nationally with Sevendust, Static-X, Godsmack, Powerman 5000, Kid Rock, and Machinehead. Collaborating with Reveille guitarist, Greg Sullivan, Genuflect has released two albums thus far. The debut LP, "The End of the World," released in 2007, followed by "The Shadow Side," released in 2009. Genuflect headlined tours across the United States in '08 and again in '09 promoting their new sound to a loyal and growing underground fanbase. Both albums can be purchased here online through CD Baby for distribution to anywhere in the world. Genuflect songs are also available on iTunes.
Genuflect sarcastically translates "to bow or kneel before God," while the lyrical focus lashes out against those who commit violence in the name of any and all religions. "Song after song picks a target and unloads. The misleading politicking that set the stage for the war in Iraq, the sex scandals involving members of the clergy, the idea of terrorists killing in the name of God, and the social decay brought on by a culture overfed on celebrity news but starved of meaningful discussion are some of the topics raised… a relentlessly hard-sounding album." -The Worcester T&G
Genuflect is steadily building a global following, selling records throughout North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and the European Nations. The underlying message is turning heads in both fans and critics alike, as the world begins to take notice. Genuflect both deserves and demands to be heard.
