About As Sick As Us

fdsyjkikji, NY

As Sick As Us is a completely different sounding melodic death metal band out of North Carolina creating new rhythms & sounds on the progressive scene

Our songs share a common denominator; they produce a visceral response in people. Our style has many, many influences flowing through it. Like a piece of stranded rope we twist into our music unique melodies combining them with the old such as Black Sabbath, to the new such as Winds of Plague, Trivium, and Cannibal Corpse to name a few. The resulting hybrid sound gives you an eclectic mix that's a refreshing break from like genre bands out there today.

AS Sick As Us- Was formed in 2008 by the brothers Zack and Zane Oskins. The group started like most bands do- young friends with a lot of energy, a drum set, guitars, amps and a garage. Our first gig was at a place called The Live Space, a proverbial hole-in-the-wall started by a friend. We were then offered a show at a new venue called The Boiler Room, which was just getting off the ground in downtown Asheville. After several gigs the word was out that a new band with a completely different sound & tight playing was making a name for itself.

As Sick As Us is now grabbing LOTS of attention across the Eastern U.S. and its much anticipated CD is set for release in October 2009. ASAU is playing at the 20th Annual Michigan Deathfest in Detroit and will be touring at select locations with Natron from Bari Italy in 2010.

ASAU regularly plays at premier venues such as Ground Zero, Green Street Club, The Somewhere Else Tavern, The New Brookland Tavern, The Handlebar, The Orange Peel and a host of others. As Sick As Us attracts a large age span of fans who like a wide spread of genres.

Our music invokes a host of reactions from crowds; everything from mosh-pits to people nodding their heads in approval with wide eyes and big grins. The reactions are spontaneous and sincere from our listeners when we play. Visit our web sites and check us out. Try us... You'll like it too!
