The Restitution is an ambitious progressive metal band from North Hollywood, California. Striving to stray from the norm of stringing together breakdown after breakdown, the band aims instead to create music that is intentionally cohesive and purposeful. Sonically, the band draws from an eclectic set of influences, drawing sounds from folk, jazz as well as electronic music.
Their music contrasts chaotic and tempestuous riffing with sweet and soft-spoken melodies. Such contrast serves to further emphasize the urgency of their message, iterating an unrelenting hope that stands in the midst of the cruel hardships of life.
Formed in 2005, The Restitution is the brain child of singer\guitarist Michael Wright. In 2011, he added guitarist James Cook to the lineup, and since then, have begun gigging with the help of session musicians and backing tracks. Currently, the band is working on an EP to be released in 2013, which will be followed by a summer tour.
