URIZEN

To quote Wikipedia, "In the complex mythology of William Blake, Urizen is the embodiment of conventional reason and law. He is usually depicted as a bearded old man; he sometimes bears-"

WAIT WAIT WAIT, not THAT URIZEN! This URIZEN is like what if Kaiju Big Battel was a videogame-inspired metal band with all sorts of crazy costumes, complicated subplots, and slammin' songs. Attending a URIZEN show is guaranteed to un-rustle your jimmies.

Go out, throw down, and have a good time!

URIZEN is a whole hell-of-a-lot of fun packed onto a stage full of monsters, metal, robots, mad science, and a group of dudes rocking their hearts out in the name of entertainment! For years, URIZEN has been storming stages in their native Texas and beyond with a unique blend of symphonic-tinged, video game-inspired hard rock. Armed with an intricate and massively entertaining live show, the band has embarked on US and European tours with rad talents like MACHINAE SUPREMACY, PSYCHOSTICK, THE PROTOMEN, MEGA RAN, DR. AWKWARD, and many more. URIZEN is also a friend to the convention and festival circuit, with main stage appearances at MAGFEST, NERDAPALOOZA, DRAGON*CON, and SOUTH BY SO WHAT?!? Holy moly! The band was formed by brothers Thomas and Daniel Drinnen (guitar/vocals and keyboards, respectively), and was joined in 2012 by bassist Rustin Luther. URIZEN has released three albums: autocratopolis (2005), Universe EP (2007), and Universe:Red (2010); and one remix album, 8-Bit Universe (2011), with a brand-new full-length LP in the works. Hooray!
