Central Florida metal band Severed By Faith is celebrating the release of their debut EP “Undaunted” with a show at West End Trading Company on Friday, May 16. Joining them for this special show are Orlando bands More Than You Can Bear and F.I.L.T.H. as well as Central Florida band Catcher & the Rye.
Severed By Faith formed in early 2012 and describe their music as upbeat, driving metal, leaving no one standing still. “We feel our music can be appreciated by all types of metal fans,” said the band members in a recent email interview. “We have heavy breakdowns, melodic riffs, tasteful choruses and two-step grooves.”
The band members are Nat Bisignano (drums, vocals), Blake Kocielko (lead vocals), Joey Leonard (lead guitar), Mike Campbell (rhythm guitar) and Kyle Curiale (bass, vocals). With this show, they are looking forward to “Being able to show everyone what we’ve been working on over the last year and seeing people going f**king nuts when we play.”
Severed By Faith recorded their six song EP, “Undaunted,” with Kyle Hoffer of Ponderifica Productions in Orlando. The band and Ponderifica Productions have put up two singles from the EP, “Neverlasting” and High Hopes & False Dreams” up as FREE downloads on Soundcloud until the release show. About Hoffer’s work on the new EP, the band said, “He did a kick ass job!”
Orlandobands.com will be hosting the show. “We’ve worked with OrlandoBands.com on a few shows and have nothing but good things to say about Orlando Bands,” said the band. “We specifically requested them to be our first choice to put our EP release show together. Ben Gardner and his team do great work. You always know what’s going on with the show and there are never surprises when you show up to the venue. Orlando Bands is by far the best in the Central Florida area. We would recommend any band wanting to break into the local scene to get in touch with them. It’s hard to find good people in this business and Ben Gardner is the best. We really can’t say enough good things about OrlandoBands.com, we could go on and on, but the bottom line is if you want a seamless show, get a hold of them!”
Advance tickets for the show are $5 and are available from each of the bands. Tickets will be $8 day of show. The doors open at 8 p.m. West End Trading Company is located at 202 S. Sanford Ave. in Sanford.
