Shrine Of American Martyr was one of the best bands I have ever been in. This was recorded in 2000 on analog 8 track by Mike Catano (from North Of America, The Plan, Thrush Hermit, The Holy Shroud, etc) in his parents basement. We were writing stuff while the "screamo" wave of the late 90's and early 00's was still really strong. Bands like Orchid and Majority Rule were good beginnings for comparison, and then throw in alot of post-punk/hardcore influence.
These songs were a great collaboration between our four minds. If I could reunite one band from my past it would be The Shrine, for the mere fact that we burned so hot for a short period of time, and then broke up too soon in my opinion. One day I will have this released on vinyl.
