Portland doombringers USNEA​ spawned in late 2011 from the cerebral minds of Justin Cory (Guitar, Vocals), Johnny Lovingood (Guitar), Zeke Rogers (Drums) and Joel Williams (Bass, Vocals).
The quartet has proven to be a seismic level force of destructive creativity with a massive yet meditative sound, masterfully crafted songwriting, and a clear yet non-derivative influence from doom legends such as Disembowelment, My Dying Bride, Neurosis and YOB.
USNEA ​released their eponymous, self-titled debut album in February 2013 on Roger’s own label Orca Wolf Records. Following a 7” EP split with Ruins, USNEA ​signed to Relapse Records and released Random Cosmic Violence in November 2014. Random Cosmic Violence’s immense presence instantly elevated USNEA ​to the forefront of the blossoming American doom scene. Stereogum referred to Random Cosmic Violence as having a “Floydian vastness that both balances and amplifies the overwhelming, crushing heaviness. Like the night sky itself, it's full of terror and awe and ice and fire. It is a massive, monumental thing.” USNEA ​spent the next couple years touring in support of the record alongside veteran acts such as Ufomammut and Inverloch plus appearances at notable festivals including Maryland Deathfest , Roadburn, Pyscho Las Vegas, SWR Festival, Modified Ghost Fest, Northwest Terrorfest, Blow-Up Fest, Up in Smoke Fest. Now in 2017, USNEA ​returns with their third full-length album, Portals Into Futility, in September 2017. <br>
