April 2010 saw ALIASES rise from the melting pot minds of ex SikTh guitarist Pin, guitarist Leah Woodward, drummer Darren Pugh, bassist Joe Heaton and vocalist Jay Berast. Following in the spirit of Pin’s legendary legacy, ALIASES are redefining the genre’s boundaries, with a hunger for experimentation and no fear of extremes.

Pin explains: “We are interested only in taking Metal on a new and limitless path, allowing the music and vocals to grow organically and exist outside the common constraints of a single genre.”

Wasting no time, the band set to work on their debut six track EP and in July put out the rough demo track “We Should Never Have Met”, which was received with an overwhelmingly positive response online. This prompted an invitation to play at this year’s prestigious Euroblast Festival in Cologne, Germany where the band stole the show, affirming them as a major force to be reckoned with.

Finding the correct players was essential and the band were willing to go to any length to forge the right line up. Pin continues:“I had searched for three years to find a vocalist since SikTh drew the curtains, first bringing over, only to have deported, a singer from the USA and then finding the awesome talent of Jay Berast in Paris, a long distance situation which works brilliantly. Darren Pugh and bassist Joe Heaton joined from Manchester band Veils and Leah Woodward is a rare guitarist not only having a playing style which compliments my own, but she brings a ton of her own insanity to the mix!”
