It’s A Dinosaur! is an American progressive metal band from Niagara Falls, New York. Founded in 2010 and having completed their line-up in 2011, the band consists of vocalist Ryan Mis, lead guitarist Karl Kirsch, rhythm guitarist Mike Zwelling, bassist John Stevens and drummer Mike Moje.
The members of IAD! are all veterans of the WNY music scene, hailing from the bands Sons of Azrael, A .12 Gauge Tragedy, Boss Tribal and Angelo Mio respectively. IAD!’s members know first hand the hard work and dedication needed to take a band from one level to the next, and are hell-bent on taking IAD! as far as time will allow.
Having been compared to bands such as Between The Buried and Me, The Human Abstract, Protest the Hero, The Black Dahlia Murder and Mastodon, It’s A Dinosaur! is relentless not to let genre boundaries pigeonhole them.
It’s A Dinosaur! has been described by fans as "a rapidly growing assault of death metal technicality and mind fucking musicianship.”
