Kevin Horner (drums) has his roots in hardcore metal ranging from Pantera and Biohazard to Lamb of God and Slipknot. We were brought together by and ever since then we have been writing new material, performing some songs that were written by individual members before we were together, and Playing shows locally and regionally. We've done verything from 50 seat bars to 1000 seat clubs like the Chameleon Club, the Silo in Reading, Gullifty's and Mac's club in Maryland. Within three months of the bands first show with the new bass player at Millennium conference 2011 we have risen into the top ten of all rock bands in the Lancaster, York, Harrisburg, and Reading areas on the reverbnation charts. We have been added to the rotation of 14 College radio stations in only one radio campaign, and we've had some spins on the River 97.3's local show. We also had two cycles of spins on Jango internet radio. Through the course of those Jango spins we collected 72 registered fans and a lot more "likes". The reports from those spins show that we are reaching an incredibly wide demographic in both age and genre. The fans we have collected in a limited amount of spins range in ages from 15 to 60 and in genre we have fans ranging from the hardest metal all the way to lighter rock. One thing remains consistent through every show we do and that's an overwhelming positive response from our audiences.
