Instrument: Guitar

Bill Kelliher's musical career began in earnest as a member of the Rochester, NY, death metal band Lethargy alongside drummer and lifelong bandmate Brann Dailor, who would go on to join Kelliher in the psychoactive noise-rock outfit Today Is The Day. After moving to Atlanta, Kelliher and Dailor met then-Four Hour Fogger members Troy Sanders and Brent Hinds at a basement High On Fire show. The four musicians soon joined forces in Mastodon, a band that has since become one of the preeminent forces in heavy music. After unveiling their debut EP and two highly acclaimed albums-2002's Remission and 2004's Leviathan-via Relapse Records, Mastodon signed with Reprise and have released three more devastating full-lengths. In 2010, they recorded the soundtrack to the Warner Bros film Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Megan Fox. Their latest, The Hunter, reached #10 on the Billboard chart and was named "Album Of The Year" by Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Rock Sound and Classic Rock magazines.

As if playing guitar for Mastodon weren't enough, Kelliher recently joined Primate, an Atlanta-based "thundergrind" outfit featuring Brutal Truth vocalist Kevin Sharp. The band released their debut, Draw Back A Stump, in 2011.

Over the course of the last several years, Kelliher has been recognized as one of the finest guitar players in heavy music. He and fellow Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds were awarded Metal Hammer's Golden Gods award for "Best Shredders" in 2007. The duo also appeared on the cover of Guitar World magazine's 300th issue alongside such six-string icons as Tony Iommi, James Hetfield and Angus Young. To help perfect his screaming metal tone, Kelliher uses Lace Nitro Hemis.
