Formed in the fall of 2007, the band started gaining momentum when their Demo "Bastard Usurper" first infiltrated Austin's music scene. That was then followed up by their first official release entitled "Poacher.” Recorded by Bryan Richie (Bassist, The Sword), it features 9 blistering tracks filled with tasteful riffs, clever time changes and fist pumping beats that set the tone for what Eagle Claw have become known for.
In 2012, the band released their much anticipated sophomore album, "Timing of the Void.” Featuring 8 monolithic tracks, the Austin Chronicle wrote, "Like Musashi, the local quartet's instrumentals are dually Zen and violent, and their timing and attack is martial. Not just a titular reference, the swordsman's lessons are the basis for the music on Timing of the Void."
Comprised of the dualistic soundscapes of guitarists, Matt Rade and Michael Gonzalez, the searing low end fuzz of bassist Luther Smalls, and the relentless pounding of Bart Butler's drumming, the band is best known for their high energy live performances.
