Band bio:
QUADVIUM was founded in late 2019 by American bass player Steve Di Giorgio (TESTAMENTDEATH) and Dutch bass player Jeroen Paul Thesseling (OBSCURAPESTILENCE), both innovators in bringing a different style of fretless playing to metal. The lineup was completed with Dutch master drummer Yuma van Eekelen (OUR OCEANSPESTILENCE) and American guitar virtuoso Jennings Smith (MYTH OF IKAATHE). Together, they have crafted an album that is a true testament to their collective artistry and vision. The line-up is just the right blend to mix the delicate balance of such a heavy aural offering and a full vocabulary of high level constructed pieces.
