Bio

Vex is a dynamic extreme metal band that acts as an instrument of catharsis. With influences ranging from Krisiun to Katatonia to King Crimson, Vex utilizes a wide sonic range to convey the entirety of the existential crisis. Avoiding the celestial leanings of most extreme metal bands, Vex conveys a very human level of expression that is far more personal than escapist. The band's 2002 "Sphereith" demo earned much critical praise from publications such as Terrorizer, Wormgear, Metallion and Metalside, among others, and helped the band earn gigs all over Texas, including shows with national touring acts such as Moonspell, Katatonia, Daylight Dies, Origin, Deicide, Immolation, Hate Eternal, Krisiun, Goatwhore, Misery Index, Abysmal Dawn, Vehemence, Exhumed, Cattle Decapitation, Morgion, Grave, Mourning Beloveth, and The Prophecy (UK). In early 2003 Shadows Fall guitarist Matt Bachand personally selected the track "Eyes of Wrath" to appear on the annual compilation released by his label Lifeless Records. Afer a few more years of steadily gigging, including an appearance at the 2004 Milwaukee Metalfest featuring The Misfits, Cephalic Carnage, and Origin, Vex ventured out to Noise Farm Studios to record a 3 song promo. This recording showcased a much more aggressive and organically atmospheric approach than on "Sphereith". To promote this release, Vex played a steady stream of local shows and embarked on a succesful West Coast Tour with Godless Rising (Moribund Records) and Avenger of Blood (JCM Records) in August 2006.

In 2008 the band recruited Micheal Day (Ruins of Honor, Alternate 15) on guitar and Orlando Logan Perez (Against the Plagues, Whore of Babylon) on vocals. Immediately the band recorded a set of songs for a split 7" with Divine Eve to be released on vinyl by Horror Gore Pain Death Productions in January 2010 and an EP to be relased by Oblideration Records in Japan.
