Album Notes
Benzoleene started its formation in 1994 when Wooster, OH natives Jason Holmes (Guitar & Vocals), Jaime Graser (Bass), Drew Seibert (Guitar), and Tim Krupp (Drums) joined forces. Inspired by multiple styles of music from Napalm Death to Dave Matthews, Benzoleene began honing their sound. Though based in the genre of metal, often touches of Incubus, Jamiroquai & DJ Shadow, could randomly show up in a song, giving the band a unique flavor.

Over the course of their brief existence, Benzoleene would open for regional/national giants, Ringworm & Mushroomhead, as well as well known locals from the late '90's of NDE, Odious Sanction, and even the obscure, Schnauzer and Happy Rainbow Death. Often well accepted among these crowds, mainly for their unique sound and entertaining stage presence.

Benzoleene entered the studio early in 2000 to record their only full-length album, "Samurai Flu", at Cleveland's Closer Look Studios under the guidance of Tyler Owen. The album was released the fall of that year. Unfortunately, within a year, Benzoleene would begin to dissipate as the members drifted their separate ways, leaving behind only spattering of shows and their lone album.

"Samurai Flu" represents a caption in time of 4 uniquely talented players from 4 different walks of life. An angst ridden, sometimes spastic, album that also takes steps back, at times, at being insightful and questioning. Each song portrays its own unique hook that will guarantee its listeners walking away humming or reciting one of Benzoleenes many catchy riffs and phrases.
