Newly reformed act Metadox (featuring former members of DesDemon) has checked in with the following press release about recording new material and gearing up for live shows:
"In this day and age, it's hard to find musicians willing to make the best decisions and have the patience to do things the right way. New York’s revitalized Metadox is one such band. Composed of some powerhouse players from the New York metal scene, the band is poised for it's re-emergence.
"Metadox was formerly signed to Metal Mayhem Music, however a deal went south and the band was put on hiatus by founder and songwriter Frank Tosi. Frank co-founded DesDemon and pursued his talents with DesDemon. Metadox’s past success is well documented, sharing the stage with Dragonforce, Kamelot, Katatonia, Moonspell, Therion, God Forbid, Between the Buried and Me, Epica, Sonata Arctica, Daylight Dies, as well as countless others bands in the NY, NJ, CT area scene.
"After the demise of DesDemon, and a well needed respite, Frank Tosi felt now was the right time to give Metadox the chance it deserves with some truly high caliber musicians.
"Frank Tosi is joined by former DesDemon bandmates, Ronald Porcelli, Mike Marrone, and long time friend Bob Neal from Stamford CT. Vocalist was cast by posting an open call on all social media and metal news sites, which Metadox received a flourish of replies. After a short search, the band choose former Livesay vocalist Geoff Rose. Geoff brings a traditional metal vocal styling with a fresh modern approach.
"Metadox have begun pre-production recordings. The new and originally written material has taken on a new life and fire, forging something really exciting!" More...
Frank Tosi, the driving force behind New York’s DesDemon, has resurrected his band Metadox after the demise of DesDemon and also announced an open call for a vocalist.
Originally established in 2001, Metadox signed with Metal Mayhem Music and opened for the likes of Dragonforce, Kamelot, and Moonspell. The band then imploded prematurely during studio recording sessions in 2006.
Frank Tosi comments, “Metadox deserved a lot more than what was afforded at the time. I'm a little older now, I have more knowledge, contacts, and I'm a much better musician now. As much as I will always love and cherish the good points of what DesDemon became, I know Metadox will be much more appealing to a broader spectrum of metal fans.
"Metadox is currently holding vocalist auditions globally. If interested and have the passion and the vocal range similar to: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, King Diamond, Huntress, Slayer, or Firewind, then contact us. We are looking for someone who is seasoned, dedicated, have similar interests, able to front a band, and write quality lyrics.
