Formed in 2001 by James Rodrock (Guitars, Vocals) and Jesse Newland (Drums), the Denver Doom/Thrashers have released two LPs: ‘Poor Man’s Coffin’ (2004) and ‘Somber Ceremony’ (2010). James Casady (Bass, Backing Vocals) joined after the release of ‘Somber Ceremony’. Danny Mingus (Who If Not Us) is the most recent addition on Lead Guitar, expanding the former trio to a foursome, as well as adding another layer to their sound.
‘Coercion’ takes the best of the first two releases and upon that solid foundation, builds a monument to all that they have accomplished in the past and will in the future. The Crew have made ‘Coercion’ their most accomplished work to date and harbinger of a new era for the band.
