The Opacity / Bio

Mark Andreotti (guitars/vocals) and Tom Vilela (drums, guitars, vocals) branched away from Oakhurst's grunge band "Brain Jerky" to form an evolved project, breeding amalgamations of thrash, grunge, post punk, jazz, neo-classical and neo-impressionism. The Opacity also features the talents of bass dominating Chaz Schaffer and the metal guitar sorcery of Sir Andy Demasters with synthesizer-legend Justin Goodrich.

A band that takes several musical approaches to create an obscurely sanguine, rough and protruding sound that takes the listener to myriad themes as opposed to a singular motif; music telling a story with the accompaniment of aggressive to serine melodic curves - touches of contrapuntal methods, as well as chromatic lines used in jazz changes.
