Mike Conte (guitar, vox) and Adam Bennati (drums) knew each other from the great state of Ohio, where they grew up playing in a plethora of rock bands. Six years ago, they packed up and moved to New York and, four years later, evolved into Early Man. Although rotating bass players at first, Early Man has maintained its latest bassist, Dave Pajo (Slint, Papa M), for some time. So how does this trio sound? Like a metal revolution! How many epic metal jams can a band write without even one guitar solo? A boatload, thats how many, and Early Man can prove it. Driving and grinding heavy riffage oozes from every song on Early Mans debut EP, bringing to mind classic metal bands, but with enough lifeforce of its own to make it totally new and destructive. Early Man are true believers, without a doubt. And soon, you will be too. Metal is back!
