Buy THIS HOLY OCTOBER Direct from Us


Rochambeaux is an Arizona based hard rock project that combines a dark and heavy rhythm section with insanely melodic lead guitarwork. This armada of sound is helmed by a vocal mad man who brings forth an eerie and precise style comprised of influences ranging from Metal pioneers to R & B legends.

With no agenda or platform higher than simply creating fun and interesting heavy music with obscure and universally vague meanings, Rochambeaux just might be what you're looking for in this age of not knowing what to think of anything anymore.

Please explore our site which follows. You can purchase our music either directly from us, or through various digital music stores like iTunes, at the links to your right. T-Shirts are also available. In addition we offer some free downloads.

Please explore the site and feel free to comment or write us any time. WE ARE CURRENTLY BOOKING SHOWS IN ARIZONA AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. Thank you all for your continued interest and support.

'Holy October' Sessions Continue

Paul just left a successful vocal session. We captured vocal tracks for Anatomy of a Shadow, Crow, and Eternal Slumber. I'm very pleased with the outcome. We're down to about 3 or 4 more songs that are void of vocals. In another session or two, we should have those knocked out and then we'll be ready for semi-finishing touches.

Mike and Eric still need to get in to complete their remaining lead guitar work. I should be able to accomplish that in the next few months. And then the mysterious figure who will contribute bass must emerge in time for fall. Our October goal is an attainable one still at this point.

Although Paul looks only 4'9" in this photo, I assure you, he's a vocal giant. More to come, including free promotional stuff so start following the blog or send us an email at and ask to be on our mailing list. In the meantime, have a good summer.

Time to record again

Well friends, its time to record more music for Rochambeaux. I will be going down for a quick trip this Friday to work on Anatomy of a Shadow, Crow, and perhaps others.
