The roots of Tejasmosis spawned from the golden age of metal, when the big four were still grinding out hellacious metal riffs, and dominating popular music as we knew it. Noticing many metal bands started becoming increasingly "commercial audience friendly", Tejasmosis' rhythm guitarist and vocalist Jeff and lead/rhythm guitarist Tommy set out to forge their own brand of heavy metal. Their foundation is solidly built on the intensity of thrash, technical complexity of their influences, a lethal dose of Texas groove, and the unstoppable urge to make music they want to hear. The exact kind that has been absent from the metal scene for more than 10 years.
In their own words: "We like it heavy, and it's gotta groove. We are proud victims of our influences, and we apologize for nothing."
After securing the drumming talents of Brad Postlewate, they released their debut album, "Submission Accomplished" in 2010, and began touring from city to city making their presence well known through out the Southwestern metal scene.
Tejasmosis convinced their singer of choice, Johnny O, to relocate to Texas and added bassist Shaun to hold down the bottom end. Both have worked with Tejasmosis in the past, and re-joined the Tejasmosis circus with plans to help them take back true metal.
In February 2013, the band spent several weeks at Endurance Music Production studio in north Texas, to record 4 new tracks. As expected, these new tracks are disturbingly vicious, have even more depth that previous writings, and will prove to be infectious to even the most die-hard metal fans. Beginning February 23rd, this machine will be unleashed once more, as touring begins in Dallas, Texas. This time the brakes will be ripped out as they have no plans to stop until they slam into every major region of North America on a quest for domination.
