Duo formed in Chalmette, Louisiana, USA, a little town around the advantage of New Orleans, in the first 90s. Al Hodge (acoustic guitar, bass, vocals) and Tag Talamo (drums, consumer electronics) became close friends in senior high school ten years previously, sharing passions in both traditional rock and technology. Nevertheless, unlike lots of the organizations captured in its nets from the diversity from the 90s, Tungsten weren’t afraid of the word metallic: “There are therefore many rings out there that are nearly embarrassed to state that. I’d rather become called a metallic music group than be considered a 60s hippie-wanna-be music group that comes from the pattern property of Seattle”. Lyrically their debut articulated Hodge’s frustrations with failed associations and a feeling of betrayal, especially virulent on songs such as for example “Given birth to XY” or “Simply Fades Aside”. It had been documented at Talamo’s personal 16-monitor digital studio room, where he in addition has designed albums for Crowbar and Down.
