Thrashed, Burnt & Branded
The Black Moriah is a horde of highwaymen, hell-bent on Vulture Culture. Influenced by hymns buried deep beneath dried earth, T.B.M. drinks the spirits of past greats Bathory, Kreator, Motorhead, Slayer, Venom, and other Kings as they frequent dens of iniquity, homes of misfortune and girls of ill-repute.
T.B.M. was founded by The Mad Arab (Bleed the Son) and Zawicizuz (Absu, Bleed the Son, Infernal Oak, Rape Pillage and Burn), with the later addition of Alkahest (Melora, Runes of the Evening), to forge Metal for a desert funeral.
In the Fall of 2011, The Black Moriah entered the studio to record their first effort "Casket Prospects". Upon completion of the album, these outlaws on the outskirts spread their gallows medicine from El Paso to New Orleans.
Guitar & Vocals
A man of few words, Zawicizuz comes from lands unknown. The Audio Assassin has ridden with such hardened posses as Infernal Oak, Rape Pillage and Burn, Bleed the Son and ABSU. Disgusted by the unwashed masses, he prefers a life on the outskirts, and is rarely seen in town.
Battery & Vocals
Born of a cursed whore, The Mad Arab's misanthropic ways are stuff of legends. A friend of no man, he wanders through the West in search of his next prey. A devil on the drums, The Mad Arab continues to be a threat to the greater good. Notoriously affiliated with such known malefactors as Bleed the Son.
Guitar, Bass, Vocals
Syzygy Dérive is the undercurrent of sedition, driving minds to madness with acts of insurrection. Masterminding black/death metal dissidents Tanzimat, he now rides shotgun with the Black Moriah, razing mausoleums to rubble with buzzsaw guitars. With the finger of one hand on the pulse of evil, Syzygy hammers black metal into weapons with the other hand.
Bass, Backing Vox
His belly teeming with whiskey, and mouth spewing hate, Zathog's rage will not cease until humanity has. Previous aural assaults consist of Grunt (MT), Order of the Cloven Hoof, and Sundering Titan. He eyes every soul with desire, and is titillated to help liberate each one... in due time....
Spawned from the Black Light, Orodreth rides the currents of chaos destroying any mundane enemy in his wake. From the Satanic works of Disruption, to the cold isolated sounds of Bergelmir, Orodreth delivers pieces of endless malice to the sinister, and a lifestyle more dreadful than the gallows.
