Album Notes
We've all heard it; "I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die." Let's call that man the metal movement in Northern Nevada and up until now that man has lain dead with only the faint flutters of a full recovery. Only from such a desolate and weather ruined wasteland could a band as painstakingly assaulting as A House Cursed arise.

Not content with pandering to the metalcore masses of the past years, the members of A House Cursed have all pursued their individual visions of extreme music; varying from black metal, to grind, to punk and thrash. It was only when these five souls united that it was apparent what Nevada needed; a metal band that would be all things to all people.

The independently financed debut album "Treasons, Stratagems & Spoils" was recorded in June/July of 2006 with renowned producer Juan Urteaga (Vile, Exodus & Sadus) at Trident Studios in the San Francisco Bay Area. From previous experience the band has had a long recording relationship with Trident, which helped in fine tuning the album into a searing and ferocious 58 minute onslaught. At points it revisits the classic Bay Area thrash movement while at others it is calling on the brutality of the pioneers from across the seas. One listen and it is easily understood that this band will continue to amaze and push the envelope in terms of songwriting and even accessibility. Yes, accessibility in a thrash band, as they are focused on creating songs that stand the test of time, regardless of style.

In the wake of local heroes December, Fall Silent and 7 Seconds, Northern Nevada's newest and most vital band A House Cursed has set their sites on national, as well as international tours. With a steady stream of shows on the west coast pulling fans in by the hundreds the virus plans to spread across the Midwest by Summer 07. All it takes is one live show to affirm what you were dreading.....

the man in Reno is alive.
