Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Group Members: Tyler Rifley

With a sound that evokes the no-holds-barred, mosh pit-destroying hardcore of Earthmover and Snapcase, Gideon breathe new life into the lurching hardcore sound of the late '90s. Formed in 2008 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the band -- featuring Daniel McWhorter (vocals), Daniel McCartney (guitar), Blake Hardman (guitar), Timmy Naugher (bass), and Jake Smelley (drums) -- brings a newfound intensity to that classic, lurching early Victory Records chug and kicks it into high gear. With just the right amount of gang vocals to balance the whole thing out, it's no surprise that Gideon grabbed the attention of Facedown Records, who signed them in 2011 and released their album Costs later that year. Their sophomore effort, Milestone, followed on the label in 2012. The band worked with prominent metal producer Will Putney on their third album, 2014's hard-hitting Calloused, and in 2017 Gideon made the move from Facedown to Equal Vision and released their fourth studio long-player, Cold. ~ Gregory Heaney~ Rovi
