thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Quebec, Canada – active since 2005.
Revolving around improvised guitar-based drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black metal and doom metal to them.
The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance.
thisquietarmy has collaborated with Aidan Baker, Labirinto, Monarch, Noveller, Scott Cortez/Lovesliescrushing, Syndrome, Yellow6 & Year Of No Light and has several side-projects: Destroyalldreamers, Mains de Givre, Parallel Lines & Ghidrah.
With already such a large body of work released and over 250 performances all over Canada, USA & Brazil, including 6 extensive European tours (in 22 EU countries) with Aidan Baker, AUN, Caspian, Nadja & Year Of No Light – thisquietarmy is a forward contender as a pioneer of the experimental music scene emerging from Canada.
Caudal is a new trio featuring Aidan Baker (CA – Nadja, Whisper Room, B/B/S/) on guitar, Gareth Sweeney (IE – Gout) on bass, and Felipe Salazar (CO – Muerte En Pereira) on drums.
Baker’s multi-layered, heavily affected guitar overlays Sweeney and Salazar’s driving, propulsive rhythm section creating music equally influenced by krautrock, post-punk, and spacerock.
