Currently a 5 member metal outfit from Orlando/Jacksonville, Florida. In the Fall of 2012 founding members Patrick "PatBlast" Shoemaker (formerly the drummer of Demorior) and Anthony Roman met at Valencia College while going to school for Music Production. Upon the realization that they shared the same affinity of metal music, they recruited musicians Darrin "Derka" Wolfe (also formerly of Demorior) Gary Malone II, and Vocalist Steven "Ziggy" Ziegler for a new band. With a goal to write fun, technical, and inspiring death metal, Emporos was birthed. Containing intricate riffs, sprawling musical compositions, and an energetic stage presence, seeing Emporos live is an absolute must.
