Universal Monster Series - UMS Demo (2005)

EGS013: Universal Monster Series - UMS Demo (2005)

Universal Monster Series, from Worcester, MA played grim stoney riff-metal in the vein of High on Fire/Sleep, Black Sabbath, et al. Mike Guercio (later of Healing Feeling) was the drummer, along with Jesse Tully (guitar, vocals) and "Deuce" (bass). I lived with Mike's brother Paul (LA Drugs, Life Partners) from 2001 until 2003 or 2004 or something, and he introduced us. Brains in Danger and UMS started booking a lot of shows together around New England, and me and Mike jammed informally a few times (including one time when Adam Watt was in town, sowing the seeds for the later formation of HF). Mike now plays in a progressive metal group called MAAR, and I'll releasing a limited edition cassette of their EP with some exclusive tweaks in January, so keep an eye out for that.
