Bio:
Boar Worship is a two-piece band that currently operates in Denver, CO. Bolstered by heavily amplified guitar progressions (Nick Angelo) and a destructively forceful rhythm section (D. Brigman), the duo creates a dissonant hybrid of many metal-influenced genres while maintaining a sincerely hardbitten approach to their craft.

Rooted in DIY ethos, the band originally formed in 2009 while members were living in Albuquerque, NM. Year one spawned 'The Decline and Fall of the Christian Empire', a scornful five song EP - documenting a brief yet ferocious period of the band's existence as a four-piece. The 2009 EP was self-recorded/released and available free of charge at shows. After some time and various line-up incarnations, Mike Day recorded the 'Pro Death' EP at Knife City Studios in Albuquerque. Shortly after that release, Boar Worship relocated to Oakland, CA in 2012 and began performing as a collaborative effort between Nick and Joseph Angelo. They recorded a willfully obscure 'self-titled' EP which was released in 2015 as a double 7' clear lathe-cut, limited to 25 copies.

The present line-up is a raw and direct display of years devoted to creating unapologetic music that nods to their past-lives and aggressively claws at the days ahead - without sympathy or desire to adopt a formula exhausted by an over-saturated/grossly-imitated scene.
