For those of you unfamiliar with the Pacific Northwest, the state of Oregon is home to vast, luscious stretches of mystical green landscape. But underneath this sea of tranquility lies an invisible war of hideous insects of every shape and size imaginable.
And from underneath the rotten, moss covered logs deep inside the darkest, dankest Cascadian forest, one particular arachnid is making a name for itself, and fast... in the Oregon rock and roll scene.
The Cryptomaster Behemoth, until recently solely defined as an "opilionid arachnid, generally sticking to large woody d.ebris and bark microhabitats," has recently been discovered to harbor a nasty penchant for grungified rock tunes, with heady tales of dimensional displacement and losing your own body throughout time and space.
As murky, metallic echoes of both pain and salvation emanate from the four members, (which, coincidentally, is in fact made up of eight arms altogether) the bands sprawling, metallic sounds occasionally draw comparisons to other exotic species such as the Danzig, The Melvins or even The Mars Volta. But the Behemoth maintains a sweet, robotic sheen. As far as spiders go, their combined skills and formidable stage presence are beginning to surpass all recorded arachnid ability.
Though the side effects associated with the band have yet to be fully accounted for, known responses may include but are not limited to glowing in the dark, doing the worm, and involuntary throwing of the "devil horns" hand gesture.
The group consists of former members of various Portland projects, all from diverse taste and backgrounds, but their familiarity shines throughout their expertly crafted web; a hive mind of classic characters.
First, there's the supercharged singer on the edge of a breakdown, who goes by the name of Ian. Then there's Shawn, the nerves-of-steel lead axeman, who's web-like shred comes from years of experience using, you guesses it, eight fingers to play his guitar. The air tight rhythm section is held down by the dazzling Raina on bass, and Tim, the cool-as-a-cucumber jazz fusion beat slayer.
Though rumor does have it there was an actual spider playing the bongos in the band at one point.
As Cryptomaster Behemoth rises to full maturity, its hunger increases, and causes it to bare its fangs and cry out its signature deranged and melancholy mating call into the night. So it begins.
