Conceived in Fall 2005, PepperDome
started as a small seed that grew in
John Tokarczyk’s brain. The concept
of PepperDome came from the simple
frustration of a person that had many
creative ideas and no outlet for them.
Already being a multi
instrumentalist, John was eager to
start recording to just get those
ideas out of his head and in some sort
of order. Having a vast musical
collection and unique world view, the
music quickly had a very defining
sound. Once composed, John woke from
a strange dream with the phrase “that
little man from the pepper dome”.
Hence the birth of PepperDome.
Starting with a simple 8 track
recorder he crafted what would later
become the first two PepperDome
release’s “That Little Man” and “Let’s
Try the Otherside”.
After an unsuccessful band mate search
for both live performances and writing
the next album, John decided to move
forward on the third album “Chaos
Point”. This six song EP marked a
changing point for PepperDome. The
music was crafted and written
differently and recording process and
techniques were upgraded. Shortly
after releasing “Chaos Point”, in June
2011, Eric Bunton officially came
aboard as PepperDome’s guitarist and
in August 2011, Vattel Cherry became
PepperDome’s bassist. This lead to a
successful year of touring and
promoting “Chaos Point” which
increased the fan base and network for
PepperDome’s unique musical style.
There were many positive reviews and
interviews made. PepperDome was even
invited to play at several music
conferences in Greensboro, NC and
Nashville, TN in front of major label
reps including Interscope and Atlantic
June 2012 marked the creative
beginning for the fourth studio album.
As PepperDome began writing, the new
energy brought to the table by
everyone carried the music to a new
level and a new direction.
Unfortunately during this process, due
to creative differences, PepperDome
parted ways with Vattel. John and
Eric found their new band mate through
their new network. In June 2013, they
invited Jake Tripp of Against Their
Will, as their new bassist. With this
trio, they finalized and created
“False Words About Large Days”. The
fourth studio album retains some basic
PepperDome core fundamentals, but the
music created has a new direction.
The music has more of a hard rock edge
including, darker, punchier guitar
riffs, ripping guitar solos, hard
hitting bass lines, thunderous hard
rock/progressive drum beats and
passionate vocals. New music, new
energy, live performances, the new

jugglers with dark garments and evil grins

NeuFutur Magazine Review
"After reviewing thousands of different releases
over the course of the last 12 years, it becomes
extraordinarily difficult to find releases that
are innovative or different from the normal in any
substantive way. However, the six pieces that
comprise "Chaos Point" paint a picture of a band
that marches to a considerably different drummer."
