Since the creation in late 2012 by founder and lead guitarist, Ollie Roberts, METAPRISM have grown in to the melodic metal, dual vocaled, powerhouse that sees them climbing through the ranks both on home soil in the UK and Internationally.
The dual vocalist dynamic of Theresa Smith and Joey Draper add an exciting contrast and edge, mixing it up with high soaring clean melodies, beautiful blended harmonies and raging aggressive growls. Add to this crushing modern metal riffifing, blazing melodic solos and thunderous basslines with prog infused drumming and you get the energetic and compelling sound that is METAPRISM.
In 2015, supporting the release of their debut album, ‘The Human Encryption’, METAPRISM made an unforgettable appearance at Europe’s largest metal festival ‘Wacken Open Air’, with their single ‘Reload’ being featured on Wacken’s 25th anniversary ‘Live at Wacken 2015’ Blu-Ray/DVD/CD. As well as Wacken, the band took the UK’s ‘Bloodstock Open Air’ festival by storm for the second year running, carving a lasting impression onto the metal scene. Throughout their short career, METAPRISM have played/toured with the likes of Iced Earth, Xandria, Leaves Eyes, Sacred Mother Tongue, Temperance and Evil Scarecrow.
2018 will see the dawn of a new age with a brand-new album ready for release, ‘Catalyst to Awakening’. The band take their unique brand of uplifting, catchy melodies that collides with pure anger and cathartic aggression to create a unique twin vocal attack, to a whole new level. From the fifirst punch in riffs of ‘Codex Regius’, the super catchy choruses of tracks such as ‘Carve the Stone’ and ‘Unleash the Fire’ to the outright heavy thrash riffing aggression of ‘Unanimous’, this album has something for a vast majority of metal heads to enjoy.
Already along with many positive reviews of the album, in promotion of the release the band has been on a successful tour supporting Iced Earth on their January European dates throughout Germany and Switzerland.
