Long Beach, California, USA

A revolution in thought and imagination that is rooted deep within...this is our CEREBELLION.

"...Very fresh take (at least to my ears) on what metal can be. Kudos and I hope to hear more in this vein! " - Jeremy Rosen (Director of Digital Platforms and Websites at Roadrunner Records)(2/28/11)


Southern California metal band Cerebellion is not one to be ignored. The group’s unique approach to writing music is something of an anomaly these days. The best one could do at labeling them is to simply call them “metal” for they cover too broad a spectrum to squeeze them into one of metal’s sub-genres.

It is actually Cerebellion’s contempt for rules that drove the writing for their debut album, Inalienable. Yet, despite its creative diversity, critics agree that Cerebellion’s identity remains unwavered, delivering a cohesive sound throughout each of its songs. Don’t be mistaken; this is a heavy band by any standard! But expect to drive outside the lanes, onto the shoulder of the road during your journey. There will be moments where you drive completely off the cliff and float up into space before landing right back on the rocky road you started on. Inalienable is precisely that: a journey. It is an album, not a collection of songs, and is best when listened to in its entirety.

Critics have compared the band’s sound to Tool, Metallica, Alice in Chains, and Machine Head. Cerebellion also offers a distinct Flamenco/Latin flavor to the likes of The Gypsy Kings and Santana on tracks “Undeniable” and “Inalienable,” with allusions to the broader World Music scene on “Coexisting.” And while all of that is apparent upon listening, the approach to the wide diversity and flow of Inalienable can be pointed to the classic albums of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath from the early to mid-70s.

Receiving acclaim from fans and critics alike, Cerebellion has proven its worth with true music lovers. Several songs from their debut album have been voted into top positions on MTV’s Ourstage.com monthly competition, including a #1 Metal hit with “Undeniable.” It was also a featured Metal album on iTunes’ “New and Noteworthy.” Cerebellion was nominated for “Best Metal Newcomer of 2010” for Metalunderground.com’s “Best of 2010 Awards” alongside supergroup The Damned Things and Warbeast.
