Still working on that hot first release.



"The pure driven intensity of Pawn Council, their passion and depth, their snap-popping, primortial spark of creation, absolutely overwhelms the central nervous system of any living mammal. They are the best aural fuck I've had in years" - long time fan.

The band's beginnings lie in a long lasting friendship between drummer Paul Turner and guitarist Miah McBride in Idaho. Paul moved to Seattle in 2001, with Miah following shortly thereafter. After settling, the hunt for a bass player was on. They found Donovan Raymond playing a show on the beach, recognized the same musical fervor in him that they felt in themselves, and the ferocity of Pawn Council was unleashed on the unsuspecting public.

Although some of their songs can be rather long, Pawn Council keeps the audience in esctacy with their throbbing rhythms and thick heavy grooves. Spirialing guitar meshes effortlessly with the moody, groove-driven bass and the driving whirlwind pulse of the drums. They leave in their wake a crowd of sweaty rockers, writhing in post orgasmic bliss. The positively-charged , aggressive music explodes with odd-time meters and twists your brain in a knot while your body cannot help but to dance your heart out. The music flows with soloists or leaders, the band members rely on each other to keep the sound full and in your face.

In today's world of image rock and nu-metal, Pawn Council eschews the "look." They play for the sake of playing. The music is all that there is for them.
