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.
Kāveh ye Āhangar
Guitar, Bass, Vocals
In the guise of the eternal blacksmith, Kāveh ye Āhangar is the undercurrent of sedition, driving minds to madness and acts of insurrection. Riding shotgun in the Black Moriah, he razes mausoleums to rubble with buzzsaw guitars and guttural bass. With the finger of one hand on the pulse of evil, Kāveh hammers metal into weapons with the other.
