Hi all,

We’re a progressive metal band with members based in Manchester, Wigan and Liverpool. Our ages range from 20 to 26 and we’re currently practicing in Wigan. One of our guitarists is leaving us so we’re looking for a dedicated and ambitious guitarist or bassist to join our band (our bassist will move over to guitar duties if we find a bassist instead) and help us take it as far as we can. We experiment with different time signatures so it is important that the new member is comfortable outside of 4/4 or willing to learn.

Our influences cover a range of metal sub-genres (eg djent, groove, thrash, death), some rock sub-genres (eg post, alt, hard) and some electronic stuff however our overall sound can best be described as modern progressive metal. Band influences include Periphery, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Opeth, Chimaira, Dream Theater, Slipknot, Korn, Born of Osiris, Monuments, Uneven Structure, The Ocean, Hacride, Textures, Between the Buried and Me, Deftones, Poison the Well, Disturbed, Sepultura, In Flames, Revocation, Metallica, Devin Townsend etc. For a more comprehensive list, check out our page:


We have been gigging regularly for about a year and are looking to get back out there as soon as possible. We are in the process of writing the follow up to our debut EP Pre-Emptive Strike which you can listen to below:
