Coming out of Richlands, NC, is Death of Uriah. Its members are George Barrows III (vocals), Chris Vance (guitar), Matt Johnson (bass), and Chris Beaddles (drums). After eight years and several adventures in other local bands, the guys joined together a year ago to form Death of Uriah. Their influences are all over the place with each member having an interest in everything from rap to old school Johnny Cash to Slipknot. Their style of music brings to the stage growling lyrics and hard hitting instrumentals. Not to be upstaged by the music, their stage presence is in your face. Don’t be surprised if you see guitarist, Chris, in the middle of the mosh pit while playing.
I had a chance to talk to our local boys before they opened for The Native Howl. Check out the interview below
