Quicksand were one of the most influential New York post-hardcore bands of the early to mid-90's, led byGorilla Biscuitsmastermind/guitarist Walter Schreifels. Quicksand provided the blueprint for many bands tofollow in their footsteps. British bandssuch as Hundred Reasons and Hell is for Heroes are two such artistswho take their cues from this band. Many fans have notedthat popular alt-rock act Tool seem to havemolded their signature sound from Quicksand's release.

The band released two widely-acclaimed albums in Slip and Manic Compression before disbanding in 1995.In 1997, Quicksandreunited, and embarked on a successful tour in 1998 with The Deftones. Towards theend of the year they entered the studio tobegin work on a follow-up to Manic Compression, but tensionswithin the band caused them to split up for good.

Quicksand emerged from the ashes of the failed Moondog project and grew into one of the mostunderrated bands of the 1990s.From their first show in the condemned tenement, ABC No Rio in New YorkCity, to their break-up on October 12, 1995 after ashow at the Hollywood Grand in Los Angeles, Quicksandcreated some of the most progressive music of the decade. Since theirbreak-up a small, but dedicatedfan base has kept the hope alive that the rest of the world will someday catch on.

Thanks guys for the amazing music. « hide
