Gaza was an experimental metal band hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah that incorporated elements of grindcore, mathcore, and sludge into their music. Formed in 2004 and signed to Black Market Activities, they have released 1 EP and 3 full-length albums. They were known for their complex and heavy sound, as well as their outspoken anti-religious and political views. On March 15th, 2013, Gaza announced that the band had ceased to exist.
At some moments, Gaza were nearly as overwhelming in their rage and misanthropy as Khanate or Today Is The Day, with all instruments (vocals included) howling out in mad agony at the world around them. Of course, all artists respond to their environment, but this band was one of the lucky few that could express the abyss of human emotion through channels that an audience can respect for its eloquent musicality as much as its raw energy. Rather than relying solely on the traditional array of so-called heavy techniques - blastbeats, breakdowns, pinch harmonics, extreme dissonance, etc. - Gaza drew deeply from wells across the entire metal community to resourcefully come up with some tricks of their own.
