This is one of the only decent local metal bands around me. Their drummer has been featured in a bunch of stuff and is amazing. Unfortunately, he had to be replaced because he just left for Berklee. >_<

I was about to point you to the already existing Aborted thread, but I guess not.
This band is actually pretty good. The vocalist pulls that off nicely.

Their drummer went off to Berklee not too long ago and the Black Dahlia Murder tracked him down and asked him to drum for them. He declined. >_<
Their new drummer is the drummer from Origin. O_O
