Orion is based in Castleford/Leeds and was formed October 2008 under former name Matter Theory. The line up comprised of the current instrumental members but with a different vocalist. With this line we performed numerous local gigs and also took part in some studio recording along the way. By late 2009 arguments arose over vocalist Matt and so was replaced by current vocalist Sam. After this change in line up the band has been going from strength to strength, coming second in a battle of the bands competition in March 2010. In June, the band name was changed to Orion to reflect the new sound the band has created. Early December saw the departure of vocalist Sam and introduced Mitch Ward who brought an heavier more raw sound to the band
