Shades Of Interpretation was formed by Ryan (theMach), on main vox and rhythm guitar, and Wes (Hauseu) on drums in late 2008. In mid 2009, Gage (theJester) joined the band as lead guitar. Chris (h8ed) joined in late 2010, filling in as bass and eventually adding backing vox.
The band has played with numerous local, regional, and touring bands including Denots, A Balance of Power, Break the Broken, Arsenic Addiction, A Lesson in Chaos, Aghori, Synapse Defect, Ripchain, Ricksha, Still Born, and Fit For An Autopsy to name a few. They have also opened up for nationally known acts such as Powerman 5000, Wayne Static, Polkadot Cadaver, The Suicycles, Incite, All Hail the Yeti, Skinlab, and 36 Crazyfists.
Shades Of Interpretation came out of the darkness of obscurity to abolish the image that current pop culture had imprinted upon the face of metal. This is more than just another metal band, this is the Resistance. This music is more than notes placed together in rhythm, this is the Vaccine. The Shades ask only one question from the XombieX of the world; What's your Interpretation?
