((THORLOCK)) is Sludge Metal with catchy hooks and a groove. Where most music in the genre only appeals to a niche fanbase, ((THORLOCK)) lends itself well to a wider audience.


Formed in 2007 by Jesse Schiwitz and Luke Koontz. ((THORLOCK)) continues to prove itself as one of the best heavy bands in the Midwest.
Influenced by groups such as Black Sabbath, Eyehategod, Sleep, High on Fire, etc. ((THORLOCK)) blends the best assets of Stoner, Sludge, Classic Rock, and Metal.
((THORLOCK)) recorded a Self-Titled full length CD in 2008, and recently recorded several unreleased (as of now) tracks with Chris Owens of Lords.

Back in Paleozoic you might’ve heard my name
Picking up and throwing
You might have argued over
If either or not I was
Creation or evolution?
Perhaps we’ll never know
