We are JWL

You are the #Legion!™

John Woodson’s Leg, also known as JWL is a multidimensional metal band based out of Wichita, KS.

We’ve been jamming for ages and the mission has always been simple; kick maximum ass, but also stay true to who we are as people, as players, as a band along the way. 
We’re different. 
Our metal is organic, weird, and tight. 
The lyrics are thought-provoking, messed up, and inspirational at the same time!

The vocals are like no other!

Dude sounds like a cross between an angry opera singer on LSD and...a chainsaw!

The music is some fairly standard power-doom-thrash-core with just enough attitude to make it work.

The drums are weird, maaan. Like, sometimes we play the riff 5 times because we can and we should so we do. 
There are no rules here. 
We’re teaching ourselves how to write more music right now!

Current Line up; Greg Garcia - bass. Dustin Cates - drums. HT Brown - guitar. Ricky Vannatta - vocals. Formed in Pratt, KS at the young age of 2009. The band put out its first release entitled "exit inside" in 2013. JWL released its second album "even further" in 2017.

New Shit!
