Nightsider / Bio

- Nightsider is an experimental Power Metal band featuring oddities such as the electric mandolin and electric violin.
- Nightsider was formed in 2009 and ran till early 2012 with Wesley Matulis (violin (electric/acoustic), composer, electric mandolin, vocals) and various combinations of Davis Merker (guitar, composer), Dan Cogar (vocals, drums, lyrics), and Kevin Edge (rhythm guitar, keyboard, lyrics). Due to the fact that all 4 members were in the Navy, it was pretty much impossible to get any significant work done.
- Nightsider dissolved in late 2011 (though the members would still remain friends) and would remain inactive until March of 2012 when Wesley Matulis revived the band as his personal project.
