Point 08 was founded in 2011 in New Bern, NC by childhood friends Derek Hyde and Albert Morris. The band took a hiatus, and with the addition of Eddie Stancil on vocals and guitar, and Jeremy Joyner on drums, returned to the scene in early 2013. Coming from varied musical backgrounds, the members of Point 08 wanted to bring a different sound to todays music scene. With most of todays metal scene being bombarded by hardcore and screamo, they decided to take a different approach, leaning toward traditional metal. With clean, yet growly vocals, driving guitar riffs, intricate basslines, screaming leads, and in-your-face drumbeats, they bring a sound not often heard in todays metal scene that combines the raw intensity of modern metal with the soul of metal music from days gone by.
