Feeling a bit camera shy


Recluse are an Alt Rock band from South Wales influenced by classic rock and alt-rock. They have been regularly playing the local South Wales scene over the last few years and gigs and festivals through out the UK with a great response to their live show. Recluse released their highly praised debut studio album Crooked Heart through HabitFormed Records.

According to recent reviews "Recluse strike the right balance betweeen classic rock and modern rock... their music is weighty and impressive", Big Cheese Magazine (4/5). "Crooked Heart is a slow burning, chunky, bluesy, riff-fest", Metal Talk. "Recluse Produce a heavy, bass filled sound laced with good, emotive vocals which do the well penned lyrics the justice they deserve. The drumming and guitar riffs are fantastic and the varied sound and up and down nature of the songs takes you on several well directed journeys as you listen", Stereoboard. "The pure meat and noise produced from these three guys are so strong that once they've pierced your head you can almost feel your mind bleed" - Gig Reviewer

Celebrated American Pro wrestler Tim Donst (CHIKARA) has begun using the Recluse song Heartjacker as his theme music. Hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, Donst is the current AIW Absolute Champion, the previous winner of the Chikara Young Lion’s Cup as well as appearing in the top 250 of Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s 2011 list, this young athlete is making huge waves in his industry. “I use Heartjacker as my entrance music because it unselfishly exposes self doubt with self resistance. Blending the pursuit of triumph with heroic acknowledgement of tragedy...” - Tim Donst.
