Burial of an Era


Burial of an Era is a Technical Death Metal band from Madison, Wisconsin.

Burial of an Era formed in the winter of 2001 when guitarists Peter Rebholz and David Natvig met through a musicians billboard on the Internet and quickly started writing songs. Around February of 2002, drummer Brian Loomis, whom David knew from a previous band, joined and the three have been the core of Burial of an Era ever since, creating a brutal blend of melody, speed, technicality and emotion. American and Scandinavian death and black metal bands have influenced their music: Suffocation, Monstrosity, Nile, Origin, Theory in Practice, Emperor and Dimmu Borgir are a few.

The band has experimented with two different lead vocalists before they decided that Peter and David would take on the vocal responsibilities. They have also practiced with a myriad of bassists who, for one reason or another, fail to become permanent members. However in February of 2004, bassist Bryan Marks, previously of Halcyon, joined the band.

After a long hiatus, Burial of an Era reformed in 2010 and started working on writing new material in addition to rehearsing older songs. Vocalist Derek Scholler joined the band in 2011. Burial of an Era recorded a three song demo during the spring and summer of 2012. Since then, several vocalists have come and gone with Zach Leiterman, who had previously worked with the band, picking up the spot in early 2014.
