GHAZM makes human music.
Three distinct eras of human musical history are reference. Via the usage of various throat singing techniques GHAZM evokes pre-history. Via the usage of wood guitar processed through industrial era technology (mainly electricity, magnets and transistors) they make a reference encompassing ancient history through the industrial era. Via the use of information technology they reference the digital age and the future.
As such, the project name GHAZM becomes a statement on being human. Human history as God’s climax.
GHAZM is a trio consisting of Ulysses Jason Newcomb (guitar), Tony Kastelic (vocals), Paul Patko (Nintendo DS).
GHAZM's debut full length album was released September 22, 2017.
