Jericco

From the opening bars of the juggernaut that is their debut self titled EP, it is clear that Melbourne based progressive rock outfit ‘Jericco’ possess a sound and wisdom that is both ancient and eclectic in its origins. Comprising five seasoned and highly respected players, the act features Brent McCormick’s distinctive vocal delivery of the band’s haunting lyrics, Roy Amar’s wandering bass lines and mystical Oud (Egyptian Lute), Luke Halstead’s Middle-Eastern inspired percussive grooves, Jordan Nagle’s wall-of-sound guitars and Fetah Sabawi’s sprinkling of programming and ...read more

From the opening bars of the juggernaut that is their debut self titled EP, it is clear that Melbourne based progressive rock outfit ‘Jericco’ possess a sound and wisdom that is both ancient and eclectic in its origins. Comprising five seasoned and highly respected players, the act features Brent McCormick’s distinctive vocal delivery of the band’s haunting lyrics, Roy Amar’s wandering bass lines and mystical Oud (Egyptian Lute), Luke Halstead’s Middle-Eastern inspired percussive grooves, Jordan Nagle’s wall-of-sound guitars and Fetah Sabawi’s sprinkling of programming and melodic keys. Sabawi joined the band on the back of his success with ARIA winning heavyweights ‘Superheist’. Stylistically, ‘Jericco’ stands out from similar acts of its genre with great pride and power. The prominent Eastern influence throughout the band’s thundering live performances is sincere, and resonates at the core with their rapidly expanding fan base. The show is a moving display of musical and technical prowess, delivering songs with passion and substance that manage to penetrate the soul. An encounter with ‘Jericco’ is designed to test the individual to the point of self reflection, by traversing a musical landscape that is both treacherous and serene at once. (We come diseased now, we come with scars my friend. When I look into the mirror I see a different face staring back at me. The dawning of the day, the sun will rise above.) Such is the force of this ever intensifying myth, ‘Jericco’ has to date shared the stage with well established headliners such as Mammal, Dead Letter Circus,Trial Kennedy,Dukes of widsor, Rook,12 Foot Ninja and The Getaway Plan. Every punter carries with them an unforgettable experience, and they’ve been spreading the word nation wide after every show. Only the brave will successfully navigate their way through the shadowy terrain of Jericco’s recorded work. A constantly evolving, cohesive collection of hard and hypnotic tracks committed to tape with hi-fi production of an international standard; the self titled EP is in stores now, and is a sonic temple beckoning to be explored by any music lover adventurous enough to uncover the pure essence that is ‘Jericco’. « hide
