After cutting their teeth on the local hardcore scenes of Los Angeles, New York, France, and Northern California, founding guitarists Ben Levi and vocalist Richard Barthel formed MATRIARCHS on the idea that they could fuse together the visual aesthetic and presentation of more thought provoking heavy acts like Tool or Converge with the sonic ferocity and energy of hardcore. With thought provoking lyrics, heavy metal precision and technicality and the energy and ferocity of their predecessors (and of course, breakdowns), MATRIARCHS brings a unique brand of hardcore-punk influenced metal.
