Fremont County, Colorado: Where there are more prisons than schools, and where the six members of I-October joined together to create music for the new millennium. Holding nothing back, the members of I-October give a live show that will surely offend the weakest stomach and is in no doubt to entertain the sickest at heart. No matter if it is the music or the live show, I-October is sure to offend Tipper Gore and corrupt today’s youth.
I-October’s creation of music for the new millennium begins with the diversity of musical styles of each of its six members. Drum rhythms built of music theory complexity including rhythm melodies, odd time signatures, and straight out aggression. Add in bass guitar riffs that smack the base of the spine being influenced by jazz, funk, the most demonic classical music, and the heaviest metal you can find. I-October continues with creating the music for the new millennium with 2 guitar players that mix music theory complexity and nu-school jams along with old school shredding to create a harmony, which allows the average listener and the musician to bang right along. I-October’s corruption of today’s youth completes itself with biological bothers that combine to make the perfect vocalist. Combining vocal techniques of all styles of music and life, with the addition of thought provoking lyrics to wake up the listener. The members of I-October strive to make each song different than the last and each song something no one has ever heard before.
After an almost complete line up change that included a new guitar and bass player along with the addition of a 2nd guitar player, a new dawn of I-October was on the horizon. A year later they completed 75 plus shows, 3 demo cds and opening for indie-national acts Hemlock and Shadrack, along with well known local acts Throcult, Fail-Yerz, Skinned, Dirtnap and The Dub Project. They have presented their home town with two huge annual summer festivals the first featuring 5 of Colorado’s top local acts and the second featuring 8 of Colorado’s top local acts, both years with hundreds in attendance. With these as the accomplishments of just 18 months, be confident that I-October has begun changing today’s youth.
