Originally from Chicago, IL and now residing in the rainy city of Seattle,WA, Hunab Ku is without a doubt an individual amongst masses. Fathered by the likes of groundbreaking artists such as Fantomas, Aphex Twin, Meshuggah and The Dillinger Escape Plan, the music of Hunab Ku paints a calculated and vivid picture of modern, avant garde metal. One that is undeniably original, and one that is impossible to ignore.
In Sept. of 05' the foursome released an intense four-song demo which quickly created a buzz within the metal community. Heavy-hitting modern experimental bands such as, Between the Buried and Me, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Red Chord, gave notice to the rise of this potential new force.
As a follow up to it's release, the band began playing out locally and regionally. The sheer power of their performances, complex, inventive material, and unfailing work ethic immediately set them apart from the flock. This was obviously a group of individuals who were not here to imitate anyone, nor were they begging for approval. Confident in their sound and abilities, Hunab Ku had truly arrived. A reputation was born, and along with that came a legion of supportive fans.
In early 2007 the band stepped back into the studio to record a completely new body of work. This endeavor documents dramatic advances in sound and concept since their 2005 release. It also introduces the opulent presence of a new creative force in avant-garde metal music.
