The Writ

From the abandoned asylums and haunted pine barrens of South Jersey comes High Council, an interminable force with one foot in Hell and the other crushing the throat of mediocrity. For years, High Council has been bludgeoning its loyal fans with ferocious epics of riff-fueled neoclassic rock-metal. Consisting of Bob Saunders, Greg "Wolfman Vegas" McKeever, Steve Donahue, and Lou Di Domenico, High Council has released four studio EPs and has mangled audiences at venues all around the greater northeast, consolidating their power in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area. The Council is currently recording their 5th studio offering, "Held In Contempt", with an eye to spread this God-forsaken madness to the rest of the world.
