Schmorf began to take form in the summer of 2006, and after lots of bad ideas the worst came to by naming the band with an abbreviation, without thinking about what it was shortened of... Playing some songs by System of a Down, Yup and a few others, the fellas had one thing in common: a very bad sense of humor. Things started to brew and now the world is in for something it is not ready for. But not to worry, neither is the band...
In the beginning of time, schmorf was a drummer and a keyboard player. Some enthusiasm was shown from a few guitar players also. A bass artist followed soon after. After some cover-playing and several guest guitarists, a man emerged from outta town, named mysteriously Joonas, this unusual stranger joined the band. The focus turned quickly towards own songs, but just for two shakes of a lambs tail.
Then the usual 'fucking around'-mode went back on. After some searching another guitar hero materialized from the night, and this creature of the dark had a name too, Eetu. Still we had a very vocal problem. Some attempts were to find a singer from within, but they all went south. Surprise, surprise...
But the 'the big emptiness' was not done with us yet! From it's very bowels it spewed out a disgusting being dubbed Antti. He opened his mouth and made nature shiver, so - of course - we had a deal. The bad news were we had to pay up to 'the major hole', so it took the keyboard player from us. We parted our ways sadly, but understanding the grand scheme of things.
The army was now complete, so things got more twisted right from the get-go. We dumped 90% of the covers and started to make our own songs. Today, we have the first recordings behind us, and preparing to take on the burden of ruling the known and unknown universe. The bass pounder has changed, the whole collective is more organized and things are looking peachy very a lot!
Bubbling and brewing was to be heard from the slimy bowels of the Church of the Unholy, as schmorf was finalizing the masterpiece called 'set list from heck, of the darned', which meant the one thing that the grey mass known as 'people', 'herd', 'cattle', was afraid of. The first gig had been announced. There goes the universe.
There was a tornado of 4, count them, four gigs to be played at an awesome pace of almost a gig a month. The fatigue set in. In the middle of this ballyhoo, the Big Emptiness saw an opportunity to strike again. After a fierce battle, one of the bravest warriors, Eetu, was gone. schmorf retreated to the Church of the Unholy to lick it's wounds, and all of a sudden, there was a voice: 'Reinforcements have arrived'! From the clearing smoke a figure emerged. Strapped with a guitar and a shirt that so proudly proclaimed 'Teloitettu'. Janne is in the Church, all the kids go shhh! They'd better, or this chap will come and piss in your fireplace!
In the midst of this, the second studio sessions brought forth an even better, morefocused and crisp schmorf. There were 13 songs recorded, and today, the first 3 moulded down to become the first single called 'Choice'. True to it's unpredictability, this 'single' contains 3 songs...The remainder of the songs are crying and screaming in a solid steel cage waiting to be let out and have a mayhem-filled party!
To fuel the fire, the whole collective is now using all it's power to make the gigs happen. This is it, the shit is starting to hit the fan! Can you smell it?
