SOUNDISCIPLES BIOG 2007
2 albums have been released so far : `Undefined` ( 1999 Peaceville/music for nations ) and `Audio Manifesto`( 2002 Snapper/Peaceville ).
Soundisciples music can probably be categorised overall in the Gothic Metal domain. The first album in 1999 was a fusion of Industrial / techno / Trance / gabber /gothic metal !. The second album in 2002 was somewhat different being a hybrid of Trip-hop / Brit pop & Gothic metal an album that also featured the drummer from Kasabian
Soundisciples have toured with various known artists including Janus Stark, Pitchshifter, Mortiis, Anathema, Opeth & Paradise Lost. A few years ago there was also a Channel 4 documentary about the band and their tour manager as part of a series called `Tour of Duty` which was about specific bands and their Roadies/tour managers.
Amongst others the band has also collaborated with Beth Gibbons ( Portishead ) & Gizz Butt ( former Prodigy guitarist, Janus Stark, The More I See, Sabbat, Fields of the Nephilim )
Gobz also co-own State of
A few years ago Whores of Babylon ( www.myspace.com/whoresofbabylon ) was resurrected as a band in it`s own right and now Soundisciples and Whores of Babylon co-exist together with core member links between the two bands. Both bands music can be loosely fitted into the category of Gothic Metal even though they don`t sound quiet the same as Whores of Babylon are a darker and more Classically bombastic beast where as Soundisciples are a more experimental fusion metal band. There is a third offshoot from these two bands that is called `W.O.B – The Noiselab Project` ( www.myspace.com/noiselabproject ), this loosely fits into the Goth Genre although the styles played with here are more along the lines of Industrial, drum and bass & Cyber-gothic , not too dissimilar to the first Soundisciples album `Undefined`.
Having not played any gigs
anywhere since 2005, Soundisciples plan to get back on tour some time in 2008
after completion of the next album `Killbox`,
initially doing a couple of warm up gigs in Bristol. In fact during 2008 there will be the strange
occurrence of them appearing as Soundisciples and Whores of
How will this work? well part of the set will be performed as Soundisciples and
then with some minor personnel changes, the other part as Whores of
There is even a fourth offshoot band that features at the moment just the 2 core members from the Whores & Soundisciples. It is called `The Drunken Pirates` ( www.myspace.com/drunkenpiratesmusic ) . The music is punk with a pirate theme and can only be described as `a bit mental !`, but that’s another story.
Soundisciples went through
some member changes in 2005 and saw the return of a previous Soundisciples
founder & Whores of
A third album `Killbox`is currently being written, developed & recorded and will be released on Gobz LoveGun record label during 2008.
