Below each trudging riff and well beyond the dense ashes of the low-end, a grinding melody appears -- the core essence of Big Jesus. The band was formed from a non serious idea of C.J. Ridings and things just kept snowballing after a few songs were hosted online. Line ups shifted and members rotated until Spencer Ussery, Tommy Gonzalez, and Joe Sweat completed the roster that would end up penning a deal with Mascot Label Group. Big Jesus is a balancing act of heavy, pretty, bludgeoning, soothing, aggressive, and droning tones that are put together in a way that is distinctly their own.

"Years of Winter is an astounding, crushing, massive debut by a band who not only seem to know damn well what they want in terms of a sonic signature, but are fully aware how to get it." - Heavy Blog is Heavy

"With or without vocals (not to say they are irrelevant) the music is humbling, crushing and so dense it builds its reality around you. Life may have its joys, but albums like this one open a window and invite you to jump in their own dimension for a while. If you like this type of musical experience, Years Of Winter might just end up being one of this year's highlights for you as well." -Metal Hammer Bulgaria

"Kansas City progressive metallers Existem immediately call to mind the melodic structure and songwriting approach of both Textures and The Ocean — which is cool on its own — but there’s a lot more going on here. The vocals are a nice breath of fresh air, and I hear influences as deep and disparate as Opeth and Scale the Summit...Tell me if I'm crazy for thinking this band is phenomenal or if I'm on to something." - MetalSucks

After four years, two EPs and a full-length, Existem's journey is still only just beginning. The progressive metal four-piece has become one of the most talked about bands in Kansas City and are poised to extend their reign far beyond. With a new album in the works, a polished live set and a growing fanbase, Existem is showing no sign of stopping their pursuit of prog-metal greatness.
