"Limelight ROKD"

Sandwiched between these two fine acts were the mighty Kesus, about whom I will be brutally honest and say I had not heard of until I saw their name on the flyers. Describing their sound as ‘desert metal’ , the quartet delivered a sandstorm of a set. Frontman Fanjo must be one of the tallest in the business, and he is possessed of a big voice to match, while guitarist T delivered some tempestuous riffs backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of bassist Harbo and drummer MJ.

"Kesus - Further to Fall"

IMAGINE if Northern Ireland had a desert.


That's where Kesus would hunt, eat and sleep.


The local band impress with their four-track demo which would make a capable sparring partner for Queens of the Stone Age.


The songs on 'Further To Fall' juxtapose to great effect waves of calm desert breeze with power chords generating sand storms.


It easy to see why they've made such a name for themselves in 18 short months. 8/10

Bio

Kesus are a UK four piece with a mission.
That mission is simply to provide a powerful antidote to the manufactured dirge cluttering up the ears of music lovers world wide.

Their recipe of infectious grooves forged in a cauldron of creativity accompanied by ear shattering power (especially live ) and a confidence grounded in the uncomfortable honesty of their subject matter has set them apart from their contemporaries.
This combination means they straddle many genres with influences as varied as Jeff Buckley through to White Zombie and everything in between.

Formed mid - way through March 2007 from the ashes of an earlier incarnation as known as Stone.
Founding members Fanjo, T and Harbo added new drummer MJ to the line-up.
MJ influenced the bands style instantly with his no nonsense stickman-ship, and Kesus zeroed in on their on unique style.
With the line-up completed the band embarked many live shows through 2008 in preparation for the recording of their debut EP Further to fall.

Their first recording produced comments ranging from
"sounding like coyotes riding powerful motorcycles through the desert..... and liking it."
"tempestuous riffs backed by the powerhouse rhythm"
and " The songs on 'Further To fall' juxtapose to great effect waves of calm desert breeze with power chords generating sand storms.”

Kesus gigged extensively in 2009 through 2010 in support of Further to fall and established themselves as a must see act.

Kesus are currently honing material for the anticipated follow up to FTF entering the studio in late 2010 with a view to release of anew album in spring 2011.
