Bio: A collaboration of friends formed to push the envelope of technical music. These experienced musicians hail from such extreme acts as Closed Casket Funeral and The Coalition Design just to name a couple. Most of the members had moved to different parts of the country to pursue different things, but after a couple years they knew something was missing. After a discussion about forming this project, they all agreed to move back to our common ground of Windsor and create something much more mature that will continue to raise the bar as time goes on.
