MUTINY WITH VEXT
If you were worried about what would become of Tommy Vext now that is he is definitely not the new singer for Killswitch Engage, or the dudes from Mutiny Within now that their band has, well, basically imploded, fret not: MW’s respective bassist and drummer, Andrew Jacobs and Bill Fore have now joined Tommy Vext in a new project, called, appropriately enough, Vext. The band also includes guitarist Angel Vivaldi, whose solo work Vince praised last year.
This group has actually been around for a minute now — I don’t know if it was under the “Vext” banner or not, but I do know they were working on demos with a different, equally interesting line-up last year. I guess that version of the group didn’t pan out for whatever reason, but this version has already compelted an EP, which is entitled Impermanence. There’s no release date yet, but for now you can check out the below two-and-half-minute teaser. The music contained therein suggests that the band is going to be leaning towards the more melodic side of things, which should neither surprise nor displease Mutiny Within fans.
Thanks to Brian for the tip!
