BandMetal

A band that constantly challenges their ability, pushes the envelope to the extreme, and has as much fun as they can while doing it. Brutal, devastating metal at it's finest.

Biography

Prepare to wear a sling on your jaw, The Past Is Present's merciless onslaught of brutal, and technical brilliance is coming your way. Five guys who came out of several other projects that weren't giving them the satisfaction, have come together to push the envelope and hold nothing back. Inside of two years, they have shared the stage with bands like Dead To Fall (victory records), Folly (triple crown records), The Classic Struggle (Iron Clad Records), The Banner (Ferret Records),One Dead Three Wounded (metal blade records), Shai Hulud (metal blade records), Locked In A Vacancy (prophecy records), Endwell (Victory Records), My Bitter End (Uprising Records), No HollyWood Ending (No Milk Records), Phoenix Mourning (Metal Blade Records), Apiary (IronClad Records), Burn In Silence (Prosthetic Records), The HandShake Murders ( GoodFellow Records), Ligeia ( Ferret Records),MadBall (Ferret Records), The Grieving Process (AntiCulture Records), SubZero ( StillBorn Records), and Emmure (Victory Records) all even before they hit the road for their first full U.S. tour. It's scary to see how fast this band has become a threat to what metal and hardcore has become these days. TPIP is not afraid to challenge themselves to the highest extent making sure the songs are crippling lyrically and musically. On stage while playing such intense music, they still manage to truly express the emotions and dedication that they put into these mind provoking songs. They have rekindled a scene that once thrived back into their town of Staten Island. Strictly about the music, TPIP feels theres no reason to have an image at all. They manage to combine so many styles and influence, its hard to contain rational thought. If you think you'll know what to expect, think again. This is the band you've been wishing for, and the band they've been wishing for. A band that should have happened in the past, has finally made it to the present.
