THE STORY SO FAR...
GHOLEM forms in 1999 when Claudio Zilleruelo and Omar Torres choose to join forces to form a band that will break with all the boundaries; the search for musicians capable of dreaming and working ethic, starts there.
Without a complete band yet, they begin the composition of songs, and for the recording of the first demo, “Path Without Peace”, they contact Muntum Tzeck’s drummer Pavel Acuña, guitarist Mauricio Zavala, bass player Alexis Aguilar and Basilio Mavridis in the Bouzuki; With this line up, GHOLEM starts to play gigs in pubs and diverse forums of México City.
When musical differences arise, Omar and Pavel decide to to get out of the project, but soon the perfect substitutes are found; Ruben Perez in drums and Geronimo Najar in guitar, With whom the songs become more complex and brutal.
GHOLEM plays death metal, with Lyrics inspired by the sameness and complexity of life. With its best line up, the band chooses to record a second demo, “Lack Of Balance”, looking forward for a record company to produce their fist lp and slaughter heads to all who listen it.
