Sons of Armageddon

Sons of Armageddon

BandEDMJazz

The Sons effortlessly blur the genres of trance, dub, ambient, jazz and trip-hop. Everything from theremins to circuit bent Speak-n-Spells are used to provide an otherworldly soundscape. Trumpet and other instruments improvise along with the live electronica. This is jazz for the new millennium.

Biography

The Sons were formed at the turn of the millenium in Denver, Colorado. Composed of some of the finest musicians in Denver, the Sons have become known for their quirky blend of electronica and improvisational jazz. What you hear on the CD is what you get live. Odd ambient samples, circuit-bent children's toys, theremins, melodica and traditional instruments combine to produce their genre bending sound they call "post-apocalyptic electro jazz." Hybrid Magazine described it like this: "What Miles would sound like if he'd lived long enough to come to his senses." If you like Jaga Jazzist, Four Tet, electric-era Miles, give the Sons a listen. Don't be late for Armageddon.
