Formed in San Diego, California, 1001 has successfully mixed aggressive riffs, precision drumming and intense vocals to create a new progressive metal sound that transcends the traditional heavy metal music structure. The band experiments with old school metal to create a sound both old and new school metal fans will certainly appreciate.
1001 formed originally in 2012 through the vision of Matt Wannamaker, Kevin Boyd joined in late in 2012 for creative support, and after a long search for the perfect supporting cast, some grueling fine-tuning of the songs and exhaustive rehearsals, 1001 finally landed on the winning formula and has hit the studio to record their first album set for release in 2014.
1001 is known for their intense stage presence and aggressive tone. Utilizing a variety of musical influences, their music typically features growled vocals, screaming, and old school angst. 1001 continues to experiment with their sound – most notably developing tracks that mix grunge, thrash, and old school metal with the young style alternative & groove metals.
