Change in Conversation to Machinery
Clawing it's way out of St. Louis is a non-traditional four piece rock fury entitled MAN EATING TIGER. Syncopated drum rhythms, groove inspired low end, complex guitar fretting, and vocals that range from whispers to roars all blend to provoke head twitching timing twists, and vast, wide shifting dynamics. 'Change in conversation to machinery' M.E.T.'s long awaited debut release, has something for everyone, from Doomsday Device that hints of post hardcore breakdowns, and Hourglass Dream scape with heavy metal harmonies and Arena Rock double bass, to Bleeding Out, a bluesy rock ballad to break neck assault and Failsafe with a check yourself time signature.

Man Eating Tiger is -- Drums / Vocals / Keyboards -- Jason Bass Guitar / Vocals -- Owen Guitar / Vocals -- Ryan Vocals / Keyboards -- Robb Man Eating Tiger was started by brothers Jason Simpson, (formerly of 'For the Last Time', 'Ultraman', 'Hell in the Cannon', and others), and Owen Simpson ('If Not For The Knife'). We wanted a fun, professional project to focus our creativity. We jammed with with many talented guitarists and eventually decided that Ryan Metz ('If Not For The Knife'), a long time friend of the brothers, and former band member to Owen, had a great attitude, and was a positive addition to our songwriting. Ryan just 'clicked' and hours of jamming and songwriting ensued. Over the next several months a diverse and powerful array of music was created and roughly recorded in our home studio. We began our search for a second guitarist, and after several tries, Robb Martinez, a long time friend, and former member of 'ASD', 'The Skyline', 'Bi-Level', and others, had the schedule and talent that fit. Initially, Robb intended to fill dual roles of rhythm guitar and lead vocals, but as our music evolved into a more technical form, He wanted to focus his talent on vocals, and now is beginning to explore keyboards as an additional tool. Now, with several shows under our belts, and with our debut CD released, we are taking the local scene slowly, trying to get out of town, and writing another album. All of our music so far has been completely self sponsored, from writing to recording to booking and managing. We appreciate the support of our friends, fans, and family! Our influences run vast and wide, with many common and uncommon denominators. Together, our focus is to play good music well, and to fall between few lines in our creative process. We want to provide entertainment for our friends and families, and build a fan base that extends beyond the Midwest. Please join us in sharing our music by passing word and music along to your friends and families. Our debut CD was released by 8/10/2010! Expect approximately a show a month locally, and shows out of town monthly as well!! Thanks for your support! Jason, Owen, Ryan, and Robb.
