Biography

Broadslab is a North Carolina area super group consisting of members of such bands as Tribunal recording artists, the Cardinal Effect, Jet Speed recording artists, Shadows of the Mind, Strychnine Soul and Crawlspace.

The group began when members of End of Days and Shadows of the Mind decided to get together to see what kind of music they could come up with. After having a few members that didn't quite fit the bill, they went with the lineup consisting of Cody Patrick (Shadows of the Mind), Trucker Mack (Shadows of the Mind), Jezebel (Shadows of the Mind), Allen Nottingham (End of Days, Strychnine Soul), Jason Stanley (Cardinal Effect) and Johnny Jernigan (Iconoclast, Crawlspace).

After many practices and enough songs to fill an hour set were created, Broadslab book their first show at the Aries lounge, in Raleigh, NC. Three shows later, they would be sharing the stage with the Reverend B Dangerous (Ozzfest host) at the New Orleans based Horror House, the House of Shock.

The members of Broadslab have in the past worked and/or recorded with Mike Dean (Corrosion of Conformity), Ross Karpelman (the Mystic Krewe of Clearlight, Down), as well as the acclaimed recording engineer David Morse (Van Halen, Motley Crue) and Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me), the Reverend B Dangerous (Ozzfest host and freak show extraordinaire) , and Mistress Juliya (formerly Fuse tv, and Maxim Magazine, Trash Talk).

Broadslab creates a high energy show, performing both original songs and cover songs. Broadslab brings together a unique audience, one comprised of classic rock fans, punk fans, death metal fans, and stoner rock fans; it isn’t unusual to see a good mix of people at a Broadslab show.

Having played at such places as Jesters Pub in Fayetteville, North Carolina and the House of Shock, in New Orleans, Louisiana, while sharing the stage with celebrities such as the Reverend B Dangerous, Broadslab continues to keep a growing fan base with each show.

Broadslab is currently in the mixing stages of their first full length album, which will be named later. Check back here for more information on the album and where you can buy it when its finished. And look for Broadslab on a stage near you.
