Leviathan is an experimental/ambient black metal band formed in 1998 by mainman Wrest. In Leviathan, Wrest records and plays all instruments including vocals entirely on his own. Additionally, Wrest has collaborated with the band Sunn O))), and is an active member of the U.S. black metal supergroup Twilight. He has stated in interviews that he has been playing drums longer than any other instrument and that the drums are his instrument of choice. Wrest also plays and records everything in his other project Lurker of Chalice. Regarding his writing, Wrest says that "...lyrics are important and also very hard for me... at times, the way things come out in words sounds like nonsense. I don't consider myself a poet by any means."
Wrest is the pseudonym adopted by Jeff Whitehead, mastermind behind one man bands Leviathan and Lurker of Chalice. He is also a member of the USBM collective Twilight performing various roles, as do all the members, including drumming.
