Feeling a bit camera shy


The Culling Song is a 5-piece band from Oxford, OH. Formed in September 2003, they immediately clicked as a group and began writing the music they had always wanted to make.
Being veterans of previous bands with different styles, each member brings unique musical experiences and ideas to the table. They are gaining a reputation for putting on a loud and rowdy live show, and are developing a group of loyal fans that they hope to expand.

The band's name is taken from a concept popularized by novelist Chuck Palahniuk. A culling song is a short poem sung in old times to those who were wounded, starving, or very ill. It's a humane and simple way of putting a suffering person out of their misery. In keeping with their name, their songs and lyrics are very confrontational, and speak honestly of love, loss, frustration, life and death. Songwriting is an intense process undertaken by the entire band. When five strong-willed people with different ideas sit down to write music, conflict is a given. But their dedication keeps them on track, and the compromises made during that process are what shape their sound. The end results are heartfelt and sincere pieces built around both stories and personal experiences.

The Culling Song has been compared to Taking Back Sunday, The Alkaline Trio, Saves the Day, Thrice, and Thursday, amongst others. While they are fans of those bands, and are flattered at such comparisons, they would much rather create their own unique sound and break free of the stereotypes imposed on so many bands in the scene today.
