Former The Black Dahlia Murder and The Faceless Members Team Up in New Band, Shared Trauma, Debut First Single


It’d be easy to point to the fact that the new metal outfit Shared Trauma features three former members of The Faceless and wonder aloud if the band name is a reference to the constant drama and nonsense they went through in their former band. We’d never do that, though… this is MetalSucks, we have INTEGRITY! Besides which, shared trauma could refer to any number of things, especially right now, and there are other dudes in the band. Still, gotta wonder…

Nah, nah. Instead we’ll just post “Radiant Person,” the group’s debut single, and let the music do the talking. Here’s the lineup:

Vocals: Derek Rydquist (John Frum, ex-The Faceless)
Guitars: Ryan Williams (ex-The Black Dahlia Murder bass)
Guitars: Michael Sherer (ex-The Faceless)
Bass: Brandon Giffin (ex-The Faceless)
Drums: John Thomas

That’s a helluva group of death metal vets, innit? Only they’re playing something more akin to blackened hardcore here. Onwards and upwards, I suppose.

Stream “Radiant Person” below via Bandcamp. No other information about the band’s plans is available.
