Band Name: Ebony Sorrow

Location: Syracuse, NY

Formed: 2000, then in 2004 we were forced to go on hiatus when some asshole broke into our practice spaceand stole almost all of our equipment.  In 2009 we got back together and have been pushing the envelope forward ever since.

Members: John Bukowski, Ron Seoane, Jay Bailey, Matt Calabrese

Releases: 2001 Demo (long out of print), "The Arrival" EP (long out of print), "Narcotic Funeral" demo, "A Grimoire Of Depravity" EP (Dullest Records)

Tell us about yourselves!
We play a hybrid of black metal, gurgle blast, and punk rock. Lyrically, we take a stand not against a deity, but the assholes who claim to represent them. Taking a stand against racism, homophobia and other forms of hatred (most of which root back to religious beliefs).

Matt Calabrese, drums, also plays in a progressive sludge band called AIIA.

Jay Bailey has a million projects. He plays guitar for Architect, How To Disappear Completely, and his solo project Nothing. He also runs WAAV studios here in Syracuse.

John stresses himself out on a daily basis promoting shows and paying a mortgage on a minimum wage job.

Ron is the messiah and knows the answer to everything in life.
