Full Bio
TAU CROSS are a veteran punk / metal collective revolving around Amebix bassist / frontman Rob Miller, Voivod drummer Michel ‘Away’ Langevin, and members of cult crust outfits Misery and War//Plague. TAU CROSS presents a unique musical approach ranging from dark folk witchery to industrial punk metal brutalism, a melting pot of Killing Joke, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and Joy Division with an infusion of 16th century English mysticism.

Formed in 2013 across two continents and three countries, TAU CROSS is the natural evolution of Miller’s work in Amebix. The band’s self-titled debut was recorded in 2014 and released via Relapse Records in May 2015 to widespread critical reception including an inclusion on Rolling Stone’s Top 3 Metal Albums of the Year list. TAU CROSS may have set a high standard for its first record, but if the band has proven anything so far, it’s that it’s incredibly skilled at meeting – and exceeding – expectations. TAU CROSS made their live debut performance in 2016 in North America, followed by a special mainstage performance at the legendary Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands.

Now in 2017, TAU CROSS return with their highly anticipated sophomore full-length entitled Pillar of Fire. Recorded in three different countries and co-produced by “The Baron”, Pillar of Fire further expands the group’s unique musical approach ranging from dark folk witchery to industrial punk metal brutalism; a moody melting pot of Killing Joke’s metallic post-punk and Motörhead’s anthemic, hard rock with flourishes of traditional instrumentation and an infusion of 16th century English mysticism. Pillar of Fire is a musical unearthing of TAU CROSS’s philosophical preoccupations: mythological motifs, ultra-terrestrial hypotheses, surreal, social political landscapes and the endless search for meaning in a controlled Universe.

TAU CROSS are:

Rob ‘The Baron’ Miller – Bass, Vocals
Andy Lefton – Guitar
Jon Misery – Guitar
Michel ‘Away’ Langevin – Drums
Tom Radlo – Bass
James Adams – Keyboards
