Plague of Stars began in 2012 and includes: Melissa Ferlaak (Napalm Records’ Visions of Atlantis, Aesma Daeva, recent Therion’s “Beloved Antichrist” guest), Will Maravelas (We Are Legion) Aaron Lanik (We Are Legion), Frodo Caulfield (The Omega Sequence), and Timothy Morton(Dying Euforia, Climactic).
The ensemble experiments to create a new genre-defying metal act, deliberately combining metal sub-genres, as well as other musical textures, to create something innovative. Their cover of “In the Pines,” a Leadbelly bluegrass original, as well as “When Morning Came,” a mix of doom, death and symphonic metal, set the tone for this new band.
AfterTime – From the frozen expanse of Minnesota, AfterTime emerges onto the Symphonic Metal scene. Described as “Nightwish up and coming,” they have adopted the playing style of their European counterparts.With an emphasis on storytelling, AfterTime incorporates cinematic orchestra and memorable melodies to produce a class of metal that appeals to a diverse audience.
