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.
Lead Guitar, Backing 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, Back Up 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.
The once respectable Alkahest was shunned by his people and exiled from his home when suspected, but never convicted, of poisoning his bitter rival. A renouned apothecary, he began using his knowledge of the natural world in a most unsavory way...for the right price, of course. It has been rumored he ran with Aversion to Life, Melora and Runes of the Evening..
