"Alekhine's Gun is pointing at everyone"

"After seeing them perform live, and listening to their music over and over again, there is no doubt in our mind that as long as Alekhine’s Gun remains focused on their furious craft, they have the right artillery to take the world hostage!"

- Joseph Schüftan, Horns Up Rocks (Feb 02, 2011)

"On the Rise"

The band is fronted by bad ass, Jessica Pimentel, who is as ferocious, loud and outward as they come. Combined with talented musicians all around, Alekhine's Gun should have no problem raising heads in the scene this upcoming year."

"Bands to keep in eye on"

“The spirit of NYC's metallic hardcore of the 90s, from Burn to Indecision, taken and shoved deep down the Death Metal rabbit hole! Front woman Jessica Pimentel is a force to be reckoned with.”

Bio

Alekhine's Gun is a heavy metal outfit from Brooklyn, New York that blends elements of thrash, black metal and death metal with subtle undertones and nods to New York hardcore of the 90's and all things extreme. In this unique combination they have unlocked a captivating sound and style and created a feel that is notable and recognizably their own.

In 2012, AG released a four-track EP entitled "MEDITATIONS IN WRATH" with Jeff Martinez (Desolate) on guitar, Dan Martinez (King Hell) on bass, and Jessica Pimentel "The Crusher" (Everybody Gets Hurt/Desolate) on Vocals and guitar. This NYC veteran lineup delivered a greatly received, high-energy sonic assault with their debut release. Their music is laced with a barrage of head-banging riffs and groove, colored with dark harmony and accented by relentless, technical drumming. Adding to all of this are fierce, in your face vocals and lyrics steeped in the profound wisdom of ancient Buddhist texts, vibrant imagery, and raw emotional honesty. Alekhine's Gun brings you a primal, transcendent, electric energy. This fury is not only felt in recordings but wherever they go as they have been marked as being stand out, vigorous, dynamic performers who hold their own in any live venue alongside world renowned bands. Alekhine's Gun is a force to be reckoned with. They bring to you heart and passion; Insight and meditation; Wrath and spirit.
