Biography

Our Story

Initial Mass is a Los-Angeles based heavy rock band that originates back in the days of junior high. Over the course of their long-term friendship, singer/songwriter Mark Baldwin and drummer Kevin Robertson played in numerous bands and projects together and apart, enabling them to grow as musicians and build the foundation for what would inevitably come. Fast forward to 2014. 

What Inspires Us

Mark and Kevin, finally determined to set life’s distractions aside and fulfill their dream of releasing their inimitable sound into the world, entered the studio to record an untitled album as a nameless band. With the majority of the recording done, it was time to turn this studio project into something real. Bassist Scott Smith, a close friend of the band, auditioned in late 2015 and the chemistry in their first practice was explosive. Initial Mass was officially set into motion. The trio completed the recording of their debut album, Time & Measure, and self-released it in May 2016. The band then focused on performing live and refining their sound before recording their second album, Tidal Force, set to be released in early 2018. 

Our Influences

  

The band is first and foremost dedicated to the art of songwriting with the goal of creating memorable, standalone songs that also serve as part of a greater, cohesive whole. As evident in their music, Initial Mass plays a unique blend of heavy, progressive, dark and melodic music. They have a penchant for odd time signatures and complex arrangements, true to the characteristics of prog music but without the sterility that often accompanies the over-the-top virtuoso stigma. Their live performances are raw and powerful, yet confident and calculated. At their core, Initial Mass is a progressive band with punk rock sensibilities, limitless in their ability to draw from inspiration and create something new, and uncompromising in their attitude and execution.
