Band/artist history
The true roots of Mordus go back to Taber & Eric's college band. Some years later, Taber formed his own band, Smudge NYC, with whom he recorded the CD "Up & Running" ( available on sites such as www.towerrecords.com and www.cdbaby.com ). After a few lineup changes, Carlo became the drummer, shortly after that, Eric rejoined Taber on bass. Smudge NYC played the club scene in New York City from 2000 through 2004 and when the new lineup started writing new material, they found that these new songs where coming from a very different place from where Smudge NYC's sound was. A decision was made that a change was needed across the board. The trio renamed the band "Mordus" and proceeded to follow their own path musically. The end results are an eclectic blend of hard rock, Goth, and even metal influences that gel together to form a style that the trio put into their 4 song demo "Mordus; The Bitten." Stay tuned for upcoming club dates
