Botch biography
BOTCH were a mathcore quartet from Tacoma, Washington, who were formed in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Brian COOK (RUSSIAN CIRCLES, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES), guitarist Dave KNUDSON (MINUS THE BEAR), vocalist Dave VERELLEN (NARROWS) and drummer Tim LATONA. They released two full-length albums on Hydra Head Records (1998?s ''American Nervoso'' and 1999's ''We Are the Romans''), as well as numerous other splits and EPs before breaking up in 2002.

BOTCH were among the forerunners of American hardcore acts in the 90's who began experimenting with irregular time signatures and unpredictably polyrhythmic guitars, all while becoming progressively heavier and incorporating the signature sound and stylistic tendencies more associated with the metal genre. Alongside contemporaries like THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, CAVE IN and COALESCE, their major releases helped cement the foundations for what is more commonly referred to today as mathcore.

BOTCH are recommended for all fans of experimental and progressive hardcore and their associated acts.

We Are the Romans
Botch Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by LearsFool
Collaborator Post/Math Rock Team

5 stars Botch played what they call mathcore: take a particularly loud,heavy, and fast take on shred metal and then add more complex time signatures and fast changes than any average tech death band could ever handle. The result is one of the hardest genres of music to ever get into, but those who can listen to it are rewarded with a hardy challenge and a quick moving succession of complex wonder. And bowing out right when The Dillinger Escape Plan was getting started cutting albums, Botch did so with "We Are The Romans", the cream of the crop of the genre. Some of the fastest, tightest, and most complex metal ever was forged by the trifecta of Knudson on guitar, Cook on bass, and Latona on drums. Each played their instruments to the fullest, without flaw. They run rampant through ten tracks of atomic power, each uniquely titled. How can you pass up tracks called "Man The Ramparts", "C. Thomas Howell as The Soul Man", and "Saint Matthew Returns To The Womb"? The epicness and strangeness of these titles is lived up to by the music. Nothing, not even Dillinger, compares. Excellent. Transcendent. The very pinnacle of shred metal.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
