"Not content with only one salient, uncompromising hardcore band, BLACK CROSS guitarist RYAN PATTERSON grabbed his guitar and a microphone and formed Louisville Kentucky's newest powerhouse punk outfit, COLISEUM. Taking on vocal and guitar duties himself, Ryan recruited an assortment of friends, family and Louisville hardcore mainstays to complete the lineup. Taking a different, if not altogether dissimilar route from BLACK CROSS's DC-hardcore-meets-noise-rock approach, COLISEUM draws its primary influence from early '80s British punk rock a la Discharge GBH, and Motörhead."
