Colossus of Rhodes

Colossus of Rhodes


We are a texas metal band bridging the gap between older metal ie, Iron Maiden, Metallica, with the new edge of metal ie, Killswitch Engage, Avenged Sevenfold. We also incorporate the catchy hooks that keep people coming back, and last but not least, an INCREDIBLE live show full of intensity.


Colossus of Rhodes is a metal band from Lubbock , TX . They struggle very hard to blend aspects from all different genres to create something that won’t “pigeonhole” them into any one category. Drawing inspiration from a broad spectrum to include anywhere from Killswitch Engage to Beethoven. The band was formed when guitar player Aric Luedeke and drummer Brandon Felton joined guitar player J.J. Munoz. Shortly after, the three acquired Dub Wood, bass major, and Nevel Robinson, a vocal major, who both attend South Plains College in Levelland , TX . They began playing together around Lubbock in March 2006. The band and Aric have since parted ways. The band has played with the likes of artists such as Nodes of Ranvier, Unearth, Darkest Hour, Suicide Silence, Strength Behind Tears, Within the Ruins, Hurt, The Sword, Dillinger Escape Plan, Silent Civilian, The Bled, Haste the Day, and more.
