Night Terrain is a post-metal band based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, featuring a sound that is equal parts space rock, doom metal and stoner rock. The riffs go from slow, sludgy and droning to uplifting, manic and even face melting. Night Terrain’s mission statement is to make music that expresses our understanding and experience of the human condition. Our music should appeal to just about anyone with a shred of humanity while sticking true to its rock and metal roots.
Dave - Lead Guitar - Dave originally hails from Providence, RI where he dabbled in everything from industrial to black metal to postrock before moving into seclusion in the foothills of the Sandias in Albuquerque. He has an extensive background in studying music composition in various styles and still believes in the lost art of the guitar solo as a means of expression.
James - Bass/Guitars - Originally from a cave system somewhere near the foothills of Manitou Springs, Colorado, James brings a crushing clarity to the sound and adds an inimitable post-metal groove. Previously, he hailed from the uncharted realms of the mythic metal band, Gnossurrus as well the math rock band, Noceros, and a variety of other musical outfits in and out of Seattle and Hawaii. He likes talking about really heavy concepts and thrashing in the rain.
Josef - Drums/Vocals - A drummer-turned-vocalist who returned to his roots behind the drum kit to start up the Night Terrain project brings with him years of experience structuring songs and keeping everything from falling apart. Originally from Los Alamos, NM, his soccer skills easily carried over into drumming.
