August 15, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Pendulum is an Australian Electronic Rock/Drum & Bass Band. Founded in 2002 in Perth by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul Harding. Paul Kodish is the only official former member, Current Members are "Rob Swire" (Vocals, Synthesiser, Producer) "Peredur ap Gwynedd"(Guitar), "Gareth McGrillen" (Bass), "Kevin Joseph Sawka" (Drums), "Paul Harding" (DJ) and "Ben Mount" (MC). Harding is a veteran DJ while Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen were part of an acclaimed rock band known as Xygen, but after hearing Konflict's "Messiah" at a rave they were inspired into the drum and bass genre, in 2003 they relocated to the United Kingdom. Their newer efforts also incorporate styles from other genres, such as dubstep, heavy metal and electro house. Pendulum are now better known for their energetic live shows, with live band setup and advanced visual displays and incorporating their rock background with drum and bass.
Pendulum's First full-length release followed in July 2005 with the album Hold Your Colour. Pendulum's Second Album, Silico, was released in May 2008 to significant commercial success. The Album charted at number two in the United Kingdom and at number nine in Australia, and has been certified Platinum in the UK. The band's Third Album titled Immersion was released on the 24th May 2010. It peaked at number one in the United Kingdom during its first week of release, confirming the success of the band. Pendulum's current musical style consists of a fusion of electronica and alternative rock, with the inclusion of acoustic instruments. Songs such as "Propane Nightmares" and "Granite" continued to be synth-led, whilst others, such as "Showdown" and "The Tempest", were guitar-led. Signature tunes such as "Vault", "Back to You", "Voyager" and "Toxic Shock", which were released on labels such as Uprising Records, Renegade Hardware and Low Profile Records, have a darker, more amelodic air to them which is substantially absent from their later productions, which are generally leaning heavily towards a mainstream, dance-driven sound.
