Formed New Year's Day, 2004, Dormitory Effect has a lot to live up to as all of the members' former bands were well established acts. Guitarist Hermann's Perseverance was a signed act produced by Biohazard's Billy Grazeidei touring with several regional and national acts. One Step Beyond, former home of uber-vocalist Wendelken and bassist Myree, was one of the most acclaimed local acts ever. They were selected to open for Black Sabbath and other national as well as regional acts and received extensive radio airplay. Their self-released debut CD was produced by Grammy-nominated artist Joaquin Lievano. Powerhouse drummer "G" was a core member of Sympathetic Magic (formerly known as Neutron Cafe). An all-female unit, they garnered its solid fanbase with its relentless gigging schedule and impressive demos which made them the toast of the underground.
The music of this exciting new juggernaut? Melodic, yet heavy, propelled by a voice that is considered one of the best. A sound that celebrates the old while embracing the new. Powerful grooves articulated with a level of musicianship that well exceeds expectations. A live show that never disappoints. All done without excessive hype or gimmicks.
Dormitory Effect is ready to unleash its brand of metal upon the unsuspecting masses...with no regrets, no holding back, and no equals.
