With lineage dating back to 1999, Epicurean in its present incarnation set out in early 2004. After solidifying a catalog of music that would evetually their debut album A Consequence of Design (2006), they hit the road and toured relentlessly throughout the Midwest and East Coast. Two years of unmerciful musical plundering allowed Epicurean to hone their live show into what is now a mix of sonorific chaos and raw passion, which has paved the path to staking their claim as a powerful and unpredictable live act.
A Consequence of Design, featuring John Laramy (vocals), John Gensmer (drums/back. vocals), Jared Schneider (keyboards), J ohn Major (guitar), Jarod Mills (guitars), and James (Eli) Pete (bass), is a concept record in the truest sense of the word. A record that plays out a multi-faceted story about a man named Gabriel and the struggles he faces throughout the first installment of a long saga.
