Nomake was formed in January of 2007 in Bremerton, WA. Singer/ Guitar player Teo and Drummer August were looking for new band members after starting out in a Nu-Metal band called Ocularis. Lead Guitar Russell and Bass Daniel had been on a one year break after starting out in hard rock band called Hans Can't Hang. With all members wanting to take a new musical direction Nomake was formed. The name "Nomake" was decided on because it is meant to say no make or no model. Trying to avoid being locked to one Genre of music or style.
Nomake is influenced by a wise variety of bands that can be heard throughout their music. They have a metal driven side with crunch timing riffs similar to Devil Driver or Slipknot and superb guitar solos similar to Metallica or Slayer. Nomake also has a softer side influenced by Nirvana and the grunge era. They are also influenced by Pink Floyd and Tool pulling from them an interesting arangement of guitar effects and pounding drums. Nomakes wide variety of influences and the desire to be excellent gives listeners many genre options as well as quality live performances.
