MEDIEVAL (USA/MI)


The concept for the band medieval was born in the late 70’s when two long time friends came together to satisfy their need for heavy, pounding, music. Although the name of the band at the time was Omnibus, the ground work was being built to form a band that was going to be unique to the metal scene. The bond of music lead Timmy and Willjious to combine their names (to Amsbuist) and combine their musical attitudes. Elwood Chew auditioned and immediately was recognized as the missing link to complete the bands line-up. Medieval at this point was managed by Bobby K., who had aspirations that the band could be a more commercial act; so Medieval was taken into the studio to cut what was to be a preliminary top-40 demo tape to gain access into the club circuit. What came out of the studio was medieval’s first demo of original compositions, that took the underground metal scene by storm. Lord Byron was responsible for introducing the members of Medieval to the music of the heaviest bands of the time: Motorhead, Holocaust, and Blitzkrieg among others. Armed with this new arsenal of metal upbringing, medieval began to gain focus into the style of music which was to be their forte’, a style of metal dubbed “sludge metal.” Lord Byron took the band back in the studio to record the next demo, the All Knobs To The Right demo. With release of the tape, medieval was hailed by Bob Muldowney from Kick*Ass Monthly as “the best metal outfit without a label.” medieval was selling tapes and gaining recognition throughout the metal underground in magazines like Kick*Ass Monthly, Sledgehammer Press and Guillotine, as well as causing somewhat of a controversy with their live appearances.
