Path to Prevail was founded by guitarist Erich Gueter over five years ago, and has gone through several incarnations and lineup changes in the years following. In the past 2 years, the band has been climbing the ranks as a local metal band, playing countless shows for support to many well known national and worldwide bands, including Chimaira, Obscura, Obituary, and Dying Fetus, and opening up the Jagermeister stage at last summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, they also have been receiving a great deal of local station and internet radio support, and because of this they continue to gain new fans every day.
The band currently consists of four core members, Erich still holding the lead with his shredding melodic guitar riffs, Tom Beheler, the creative and intense percussionist, David Marfitt with his energetic stage performance and dynamic vocal range, and Shawn Goree, the highly experienced bassist providing a solid backbone for the band. The group continues to strive towards writing catchy and more challenging music, refusing to follow the basic blueprints for most of todays modern heavy bands and proudly continues to stand out amongst the crowd with every live performance they deliver. For fans of all genres of metal, Path to Prevail is a band you definitely won't walk away from dissapointed.
