Mizon / Bio
Mizon is a four-piece group from Denver, Colorado. They have an original sound and have been compared to bands like Tool, Soundgarden, The Deftones and Chevelle. Originally forming as a four-piece in 2007 they garnered little attention playing only a few shows with this lineup(Justin-Vocs Taylor-Guitar Derek-Bass Morgan-Drums). In 2008 bass player Derek Reicks moved away to start a family. While searching for a replacement they met guitarist Matt Austin and decided to add a second guitarist. Chad Falletti was selected to replace Derek Reicks on bass. Now as a five-piece their sound was stronger than ever.
In 2009 they selected 8 Houses Down to record their first demo. The demo consisted of four tracks (To be good, Narrow minded soldier, Wound and Interlude) and made it to a few radio stations helping the band gain some local attention.
In 2010 Taylor would leave the band citing musical differences. Over the course of the next few months they would try out many guitarists finally selecting Steven Garza in late October. With the lineup back to normal they were ready to make music again but Matt Austin surprisingly decided to leave the band citing musical differences as well. Left scratching their heads they decided to move on as a four-piece rather than painstakingly search for another guitarist.
In September 2011 they were invited to be apart of the Project Independent Metal showcase. In an effort to promote their band during this competition they decided to do a one-track demo choosing the song "Not Here". They choose Ahrue Luster formally of Machinehead now with Ill Nino to produce and record the demo. Out of 350 plus bands selected nationwide the band finished 60th. The band was disappointed they didn't make the third round but proud they cracked the top 20 percent in the nation.
In 2012 the band is planning to gig and gig some more. They hope to have a 10-12 track concept album completed late 2012 or early 2013. Keep an eye out for future shows though, they are soon on the horizon.
