Organical is committed to exploring the shadows between genres. Influences range from early heavy metal, Spaghetti Westerns, neo-industrial music and 60's French pop music. Among the many artists that Organical admires and draws inspiration from are Coil, Radiohead, Black Sabbath, Calexico, Foetus, Can and Jeff Buckley. Organical welds the tools provided by the great art of the past to creat a new lifeform, Postmodern Gothic, in which they can create tales of machines and monsters, filling their music with ever-expanding spirals of beauty and desolation. Organical originated in 1998 by singer/guitarist Steve Jelliman after his departure from Industrial Metal pioneers Malhavoc, a band Steve spent several years with, recording 4 CD's and touring throughout North America. At first conceived as a studio project, Organical evolved into a 5 piece band in order to perform live the material from the Organical debut CD 'Psyche Self-Defense.' After a couple of years of honing their sound through extensive rehearsing and live performing Organical returned to the studio in 2004 to record a follow-up CD 'The Elementals.' This sophomore CD, the first as a full band is the natural progression. Weaving delicate melodies and quiet exposition between explosions of power and sharp shards of noise. Organical continue to push towards music that ignores constraints and utilizes an ever increasing variety of dynamics and instrumentation. Lyrically 'The Elementals' infuses the music with words that are crafted with the same care as the music. They enrich and reward the careful listener with additional reasonances and textures.
