Countdown to Armageddon
COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDDON is a 3-piece post-punk crust band from Seattle, Washington. Thick layers of reverb and chorus-effected darkwave riffs, sometimes reminiscent of early KILLING JOKE or AMEBIX, weave in and out of the lines between punk, hardcore, and d-beat crust. Lyrically, their songs address the conflict between the artificial and natural worlds, and the struggle to preserve humanity in an increasingly digitized and bleak dystopian future.

COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDDON formed in 2004 and played their first and several sequential gigs at Second Avenue Pizza, a legendary music venue and restaurant in Seattle that housed much of the DIY music scene for a few years. The group released their demo CDR in summer of 2004 and immediately embarked on a short West Coast tour. The group recorded their s/t 7” w/ Brandon Fitzsimons at the Audaretum, and released it in August of 2005 on Aborted Society Records, just before leaving for a full US tour in 2005.

After a brief hiatus, the group began writing new material and re-working old songs, playing their first show back at the Morgue in 2008. The group recorded the Turn into Shadows cassette in January 2010 with Black Breath guitarist Eric Wallace in his basement. In March of 2010 the group recorded the Eater of Worlds LP with Stan Wright at Buzz or Howl Studios in Portland, and mastered it through Chris Hanzsek at Hanzsek Audio. Eater of Worlds was released on Aborted Society in October 2010, right after which the group embarked on a West Coast U.S. tour with Frustration in October 2010.

In September of 2012 their second full-length album, Through the Wires, was released on vinyl through German punk label Skuld Releases, and on CD/CS through Aborted Society. The group recorded in March with Stan Wright at Buzz or Howl Studios, and mastered the material with Jack Control at Enormous Door in Austin, TX. Upon the release of Through the Wires, in September of 2012 COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDODN traveled to the East Coast US and toured Western Europe and Scandinavia.

Bellicose Minds
We started in 2009 with the mindset of doing something different from what was going on around us. Song we're written and shows booked. The self titled, self released tape demo was released in the fall of 2009.

In early 2010 the buzz or howl sessions were released. We gigged locally like mad men through out 2010. In late 2010 things started to move ahead for us. We we're invited to play distort Vancouver, and booked a west coast tour.

In spring of 2011 we recorded a 7 inch EP, which was released on whispers in darkness. Following its release our original bassist left to do other shit. Mira picked up on bass in June. We wrote lots of music in the Fall of 2011 as well.

In early 2012 our second guitarist/synth player was also no longer part of the band. We gigged heavily as a 3 piece, and wrote a LP with mira. Summer 2012 recording began on the LP at buzz or howl studios. 2012 was out busiest year to date. After recording the LP, we played Distort Vancouver BC, Varning in Montreal fest, and did a west coast tour with Belgrado.

2013 is looking good, the LP will be out soon. A European tour is on the horizon for fall, and a new EP is written and will be recorded in spring.
