Botch

Seattle, WA's Botch is at the forefront of a near revolution in sound in heavy music. A virulent strain of progressive, underground, and sometimes violent heavy metal-infused guitar histrionics steeped deeply in hardcore punk scene aesthetics and the much touted D.I.Y. ethic, with many that community's lowest common denominator, tough-guy minded inflections thankfully absent. It's a subgenre that is most often labeled noisecore. Much like their noisecore peers in bands like Converge and Isis, Botch's sound balks at the established conventions and preconceived limitations of the hardcore genre, with the quartet tastefully and artfully crafting complex, mathematical musical compositions with dexterity, depth, and skill. Advertising copy once appropriately called the band evil math rock. Vocalist Dave Verellen takes his lyrical conceptualization very seriously, filling the band's records with stark metaphors and often incredibly wordy song titles. Botch formed in 1993 when Verellen hooked up with his high school chums Tim Latona (drums), Brian Cook (bass), and guitarist David Knudson -- a lineup that has endured over the years, avoiding the constant changes that many of the band's peers undergo. Two years later, Botch released their first demo on cassette and toured behind it. In 1997, the band joined forces with Boston's Hydra Head Records imprint, a sometimes home to such noisecore genre standard bearers as Cave In, Drowning Man, and other bands. Botch released their first full-length album, American Nervoso, that same year. It was an album that showcased Knudson's incredible guitar playing talents that would soon see him recognized as one of the best players in the underground scene. 1999 saw the release of Botch's We Are the Romans, a profoundly dense, conceptually driven, and meticulously crafted thematic tour de force that heightened the band's notoriety amongst the metal press and garnered them further touring opportunities, including a trip across the pond to Europe (their second) in support of friends/like-minded musicians Dillinger Escape Plan. The next two years saw the band performing live, including an appearance at Krazy Fest 4 in Louisville, KY. ~ Ryan J. Downey, Rovi

Looking back, 1997 to 2003 was probably the greatest advancement in music. Someone build a time machine already.

RIP Botch. Glad I got to see ya plenty of times in Seattle before the end.
LOL green jelly
Would you believe i saw them open for Green Jelly at RKCNDY in Seattle back in the day?
These guys are dynamite. Got introduced to them here on Pandora. Thanks Pandora!
R.I.P. you Evil Math-Rock Gods!
BOTCH FOR-F**KING- E V E R ! ! !
Norma Jean's Bless the Martyr and O'God the Aftermath albums have a lot of Botch influence. Their new stuff has strayed from the Botch-like sound.
To the person who said Norma jean stole Botch' stuff...Norm a Jean isn't even close to Botch, so to say NJ even STOLE the sound from them is a disgrace to Botch.
third part in a tragedy. great song. i play bass. this song makes me wanna play drums. fo realz.
Love. These. Dudes. Plain and simple.
Yet another band that makes me proud to have been born and raised on the Puget Sound. 8D
norma jean sucks
Some of the greatest live shows ever. I will forever miss this band!
Norma Jean stole their stuff. Botch wins.
specter818

Hearts.

I will always love this band; the raddest thing I have ever seen with my own two eyes.

Dave now sings for The Narrows on Death Wish.



R.I.P.
Took me a couple of tries to decide that I really like this band.
wilski_arcad i a
I just recently started listening to indie (small town in Texas punk kid) and at the same time I was getting out of the poser punk scene (small town in Texas punk kid once again) and this band diffidently has everything I like in music right now. Too bad they broke up.
I saw their final show at the showbox, amazing! one of the best live shows ever. Didn't know they made a cd out of it!
this is absolutely breathtaking , i didnt even know this kinda music existed! its everything i love about hardcore, mathrock and indie/noise.
you should listen to starkweather or the beach boys, guy.


if you never listened to botch, you should probably go ahead and do it. they will bring you closer to enlightenmen t .
Botch is a testament to musical prowess and downright DIY ethics. Dave Knudson's virtuostic guitar playing and Dave Verellen's lyrical depth really shaped what this band was and still is in the minds of its fans. The rhythm section of Tim Lantona and Brian Cook paved the way for many of todays acts rhythms and bass lines co-existing with an almost carbon copy of Dave's guitar riffs; this band is probably the most ripped off band I've ever heard. It's a shame, if they would have stuck around for
Botch changed my life. RIP>
