Pthalo


In April of 2003, and discouraged with the direction the local music scene seemed to be heading in New Haven, a group of Connecticut musicians set out to work a new approach. With former members of Quadraphonic, Stub Pullman, Sterves of Neil, and Hyperdrop - the musicians in Pthalo formed a bond and created a common musical vision: to provoke a mood, a sensation and an impression through performance and sound.

In April of 2003, and discouraged with the direction the local music scene seemed to be heading in New Haven, a group of Connecticut musicians set out to work a new approach. With former members of Quadraphonic, Stub Pullman, Sterves of Neil, and Hyperdrop - the musicians in Pthalo formed a bond and created a common musical vision: to provoke a mood, a sensation and an impression through performance and sound. Pthalo fashions this vision through crushing, yet submissive guitars, stabbing keyboard moans, the mechanical harmony of drums, and straightforward yet commanding bass lines. Pthalo's members have graced the stage with Fountains of Wayne, King's X, Rival Schools, Grand Theft Audio, and They Might Be Giants. With both a heavy yet subdued sound, Pthalo's music seems to cross musical boundaries while still paying homage to their contemporaries and influences: Grandaddy, Helmet, Faith No More, Weezer.

Pthalo members Mike Conlin and Christopher Scheidel have also participated in co-write collaborations with producer and guitarist Page Hamilton of Helmet, resulting in contributed tracks to the album "Size Matters". Pthalo finished their self-released full length, simply titled "Pthalo" in November of 2003. The songs on this record have demonstrated their diversity by landing them spots both in extreme sports videos all the way to dark independent film productions. "Gated" appears in Mark France's film, Midnight of the Mind currently in post-production - as well as collaborating on music specifically for various other independent film productions. With a video release for "Chasm" in the summer of 2004, Pthalo also carried further their vision into the visual realm, complimenting to the film projects they have pursued. "Chasm" was promoted to 55 outlet programmers in July and August of 2004 including MTV, MTV2, Fuse, and Much Music and received favorable airplay on 120 Minutes Latin America. With a regional touring schedule that expandrf to the midwest and south of the tri-state area, early CMJ charting in Washington state and Arizona, Pthalo brought their music to the masses shortly before the demise of the band in April of 2006.

With the announcement of guitar player Scheidel's departure from the band, the band decided not to reform. The band currently remains inactive but in communication. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
