Vermithrax was formed by JR Jameson (Nunslaughter, Mercenary US, Icarus Witch) and Chris "Croy" Roy (Reading Zero, Emancipation Syndicate) in 2012 to revive a past love for the more heavier, driving metal that they grew up on. Joined by guitarist, Scott "Hagz" Haggerty (ex-Order Of Nine) and later, Tom Donaldson (Future Tense, Mercenary US) on bass, they started writing a piece of metal lore that became their debut 5 song EP, Vol.1 and has continued to this very day. Vermithrax has already started to pummel the metal scene with the likes of Queensryche, Metal Church, Iced Earth, Overkill, Evergrey, Sabaton, Lizzy Borden and more! They have recently added Steve Beachem on guitars to the mix and are hitting the scene with a vengeance.
While recording the new full length, what they have brought forth is a vicious serpent-like winged beast of biting riffs, soaring vocals and screaming leads that will soon be unleashed on your village.
Currently in pre-production on their new LP, it is already shape-shifting into the perfect musical killing machine. Join the Vermithrax Army on Social Media and help spread the plague!
