"Formed by former Mahumodo front man Mehdi Safa and drummer Tom Harriman, based in the United Kingdom and in California, *shels (sometimes referred to as Shels) self-released their debut album ‘Sea of the Dying Dhow’ on June 18, 2007 on their own imprint (*)shelsmusic.
Showcasing progressive, cinematic soundscapes and raw brutality, *shels’ live lineup has featured members of Eden Maine, Mahumodo, and Fireapple Red.
*shels was formed in 2004 following the split of Mehdi Safa’s former band Mahumodo. While some of his former band mates went on to form Devil Sold His Soul, Mehdi (born in America of Lebanese and Iranian parents) relocated to Los Angeles. There he wrote the music that has created *shels.
*shels released “Laurentian’s Atoll” in December of 2007 again to acclaim from the press.
Plans are already being started for a UK tour in the summer of 2009, along with a US tour before the new album “Plains Of The Purple Buffalo” is unleashed later in the year." LAST.FM
