Dare to wear the foolish clown face.” - Frank Sinatra

The Terrible Texan

Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Terrible Texan is an alternative metal project founded by Paul Nelson.  The music is edgy and filled with hard hitting energy, yet you can groove and dance to it at the same time. Their loud, easily recognizable tone and attitude makes The Terrible Texan one of the most epic bands in the Houston area. Taking the essence of grunge and punk, and mixing it with black metal recording techniques, The Terrible Texan consistently delivers soundscapes that will challenge your perception of what a modern alternative band really is.

Founded in 2020, the original lineup of Paul, Calvin, and Avery split up after creative and personal differences. Paul continued the mission, recording the third record, Violence, Vice, and Virtue as an entire solo project, enlisting help from fellow musicians within the Houston metal scene such as Jorge Ximena from Labyrinth and Ryan Bellegrave from Sepherin.
