One of the hardest hitting metal acts out of Connecticut, Currents brings together some of the most talented musicians from their area. Formerly known as We Came As Plague, in 2009 they reformed as Currents and added Patrizio Arpaia on vocals to bring the band full circle. The band is described as having ‘earth-shattering vocals, monstrous breakdowns and melodic riffs’ while encompassing that ‘Connecticut groove’. Currents is full of technicality, from striking the perfect balance of songs that make you head bang to beautifully crafted melodies that are infectious to say the least.
Hayato Imanshi initially started off Cyclamen whilst he was living in London as a studio project. After recruiting some other members, it became a full touring band and toured the UK in 2011 with Aliases and Chimp Spanner. However, the live lineup was quickly disbanded after guitarist Olly Steele left to join [band]Monuments[/band].
