Morrum is a progressive metal project following the musical escapades of Simeon Zahariev in his quest to devise the question.
A riff fueled, fusion inspired, funk influenced, groove driven, math stricken, mainly instrumental type of thing.
An attempt to unburden a burden.
Started as a made up band when me and my pals were trying to come up with a band name early 2009, I had a guitar for a couple of months, no one else had any instruments or musical talent to speak of, myself very much included in the lack of talent/skills department.
Only The Strong was birthed in quiet Northern Arkansas in early 2015, the child of founder Matt Bernal. With a concept burning in his mind, Bernal wrote and recorded the bands first release, Origins. The 8-track EP is a concept album following the rise and fall of mankind. Interested in the idea of adding vocals to his work, Bernal began holding 2-phase auditions in which prospects had to successfully write lyrics that captured the feel and idea of a song, and later do a trial recording. After multiple auditions, Bernal joined forces with Brian Fulks.
