Formed: 2007
From: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Last Known Status: Active


Abriosis was formed in the winter of 2007, quickly carving out a sound uniquely their own by mixing elements from whatever extreme music genres they saw fit. Starting with just vocalist, Chris Mathis, and guitarist, Taylor Lipton, Abriosis immediately began searching for a proficient drummer and a bassist who were not willing to compromise on anything less than exactly what the band was looking for.

In July of that same year, they began recording an EP set for release in early 2008,
featuring the four tracks "Memoirs of a Traitor," "Architecture of an Anomaly," "Bottom Feeder" and "They Came like Wolves."

In October of 2007, Abriosis aquired bassist Dan Maidana and continued rehearsing and tightening up songs to prepare for their next studio endevour.
