Bio

Formed in 2005 by old friends Chris Green, Matt Mitchell and Lee Farmery, FURYON came together out of frustration that no-one was making the kind of records they wanted to listen to. Having grown up on a mix of Heavy Metal, Classic Rock and Prog the guys wanted to make music that was technically outstanding, melodic, and that above all kicked some arse.

Flying in the face of what was fashionable in the rock and metal scene FURYON came up with their own unique sound and start to create a real buzz locally with their take no prisoners live shows. Shortly after they released the debut EP “32 Hours”, which they quickly sold out, along with an accompanying tour.

Unfortunately the momentum they had started to build was lost when founder member Simon relocated to the States, and the band went back to the drawing board.

Drawing inspiration from bands from the burgeoning prog metal scene, and with new bassist Alex “Nickel” Bowen in tow, FURYON hit a new gear with their song writing. They wrote and recorded a new song called “Souvenirs” which marked a new highly technical dimension to their sound, and was set to open up some new doors for them

A mutual acquaintance put this demo in the hands of platinum selling US producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Vince Neil), who liked it so much he offered to cancel the project he had lined up with a well known US band and produce an album for them.

With no label support behind them the guys had to beg, borrow and sell anything they didn’t need to survive! By the skin of their teeth, and by the grace, and belief of some one very understanding friend, they scraped together the money to head out to Atlanta and recorded the aptly titled album “GRAVITAS”. Rick’s production skills were the missing piece of the puzzle, and FURYON were finally able to realise the sound they had been dreaming about. The huge production really bringing out the dynamite riffs, great choruses, and blistering solos

Returning to the UK broke but excited they realised that this album was simply too big too play live with the current line up. There was only one man that could handle the task and shortly FURYON added the talents of local legend Pat “The Shred” Heath on guitar.

In February the band self- released the 3 track “Sample” EP and launched it to a sell-out home town crowd. They have played shows with bands such as Winger, and Viking Skull and are now plotting a UK tour. They are self releasing their first album “Gravitas” this June.
