Eleven &the Falcons are a restrained metal band from Hellburn, Australia and were formed in 1995. The band's music, heavily influenced by older jazz metal and crustcore, can be characterized as a fusion of these with mechanical metal, speedcone, and jabber. The band's founding member, Puke Penny, describes the band's style as incestual sex metal.Read More...
Eleven &the Falcons have produced five full length albums, The Smearjerker (2000), Dissimulacre (2002), Whirl of Flies (2005), Animalasscity (2007) and The Whackening (2008). These were released through Pearache Records, with the exception of the latest album, which was released through BerserkaBurka Industries. During the early part of their career as a live act, band members were identified only as The Vocalist, The Guitarist, The Bassist and The Dummy, distinguishable on stage only by the flesh-masks they wore. However, the group has since abandoned this gimmick.
A DVD documentary, The Principal and Practical Eleven &the Falcons (2004), includes several hours of live concert footage, as well as the first public images of the band members without their flesh-masks.
Most of the band's music videos have been banned from broadcast for reasons such as the possible epileptic fit-inducing imagery contained in the video "Foreskinner", and the horrific imagery of "Realty". The latter features graphic images of Cadbury eggs and body parts, along with appearances of the band members themselves.
