The band METAPRISM define ‘Beauty and the Beast’ with their unique brand of melodic and progressive metal. With a combination of female and male vocals their huge sound blends face melting aggression whilst still assaulting audiences with soaring melodies.
METAPRISM was created in November 2012 by guitarist Ollie Roberts who, alongside vocalist Theresa Smith began writing songs for their debut 3 track EP, which was released April 2013. The injection of harsh male vocals provided by Jut Tabor really gives their music an edge which compliments the clean melodies and harmonies perfectly. With a heavy rhythm section played by guitarist Jimmy Alford, drummer James Clarke and bassist Mike West this band is stamped with the hallmark of exciting powerful melodic metal.
Although a fairly new band, METAPRISM have already played alongside ‘Sacred Mother Tongue’, ‘I AM I’, Mikee Goodman’s project ‘Outpatients’ and ‘Evil Scarecrow’. As well as a successful appearance on the Newblood stage at the UK’s best metal festival, ‘BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2014′, which featured the likes of Megadeth, Emperor, Down, Lacuna Coil, Children of Bodom… amongst many other quality major and unsigned acts across 3 stages.
METAPRISM continues to step up and capture live crowds with their energetic and dynamic live show. 2015 saw them not only make an appearance at Europe’s biggest festival, Wacken Open Air, but also making a return to Bloodstock Open Air for the second year running! This time on the Sophie Lancaster Stage on opening night. With a full debut album out now, 2015 has a lot in store for these melodic metallers!
