Back When biography
BACK WHEN is a post metal band from Omaha,Nebraska whose members are;Aaron Broveak (drums),Chris Kelley (bass),Jonathan Tvrdik (guitars,vocals) and J. Michael Mickeliunas / (guitars,vocals).

Featuring a former member of prolific Midwest hardcore/sludge band EXAM and sharing members of Omaha hardcore bands such as ROBOTS DON'T CRY, CAUGHT IN THE FALL and EYES OF VEROTIKA,it is no surprise that BACK WHEN'S first two releases fall farther towards the hardcore side of the fence.Their debut EP "Celebration of Alceste", released on Imagine It Records in 2003, featured fast crushing riffs at breakneck speeds.In 2005 they released the "Swords Against the Father" 7" on Init Records,which straddled the line between hardcore and sludge with its churning SABBATH-esque riffs.

Also in 2005 BACK WHEN released their first full-length album "We Sang As Ghosts",which contains epic songs that jump all genres to create glorious electronic soundscapes where mammoth riffs, pounding drums and quiet interludes intertwine with ease.

After six years the band decided to split in September of 2008.

BACK WHEN draws inspiration from a wide array of influences such as 90 DAY MEN, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR,ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA,RUSH and HUM and is sure to please fans of bands like NEUROSIS,ISIS and RADIOHEAD.Highly recommended.
