These perpetual purveyors of rock began as the foursome Soma in 2002. Chad Mosson, Derek Berry, Jeremy Forsythe, Frankie Robbins experimented with various ideas, yet fell short of finding their niche completely. The continuous evolution toward an identity became concrete with the fruition of Culdera. Jeff Stables replaced Frankie Robbins, and after intense effort, Culdera defined their sound.
In the current and most rewarding phase, Culdera has reached a higher echelon. After one final member adjustment, replacing Jeff Stables with new bassist Garrett Kovalik, they began to make serious monetary and time investments. After a winter of immersing themselves in preparation, they emerged in the early spring and since has wowed every crowd they've performed for. Within this short resurgence period, they have won numerous battle of the bands both live and online, including one of the biggest in Virginia. Despite their success, the self-promoted, self-managed Culdera remains dedicated and totally loyal to what they do best, and unanimously agree there is no end in sight.
Culdera's first release "The Dawning" (Racecat Records) is a collective demonstration of metal and hard rock roots blended with today's modern rock sound. People have compared the band's sound with artists such as Tool, Helmet, Alice In Chains, old Metallica and Incubus.
