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.

Riffs Not Riots Charity Gig In Vancouver, BC

The Riffs Not Riots show was an effort by the Vancouver metal community to showcase local talent while emphasizing that while we love our violent music, we don’t condone violence in our streets. The show was a way of protesting against the riot that devastated Vancouver shortly after the Canucks’ loss against the Boston Bruins in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The MetalUnderground.com-sponsored event took place on July 13th, 2011, at the Fortune Sound Club, strangely located in the heart of Chinatown. Proceeds went to Canucks for Kids Fund, a nonprofit charity run by the Vancouver Canucks NHL organization. The crowd was a mixed group, ranging from hipsters to an old guy in a fishing cap (he had to be at least 60 or 70) who rocked out until closing. Somehow, the anti-riot theme of the show toned down the moshing as most of the audience just stood and soaked up the tunes. More...

Metalunderground.com Presents: Riffs Not Riots

Metalunderground.com is thrilled to announce that we will be taking part as a sponsor in an upcoming charity event dubbed "Riffs Not Riots" on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 in Vancouver, Canada.

Metalunderground.com is joining forces alongside Etnies, Cariboo Brewing, Emerica, Abort Magazine, The Invisible Orange, 99.3 The Fox, Scratch Records and many others to bring "Riffs Not Riots" to the people in an effort to support the victims of the recent riot that took place in Vancouver. The proceeds from the event will go directly to the Canucks For Kids Fund - a nonprofit charity run by the Vancouver Canucks NHL organization.

On the evening of June 15, 2011 a riot broke out in the city of Vancouver following the team's loss in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins. The riot and following looting impacted over 60 Vancouver businesses which suffered millions of dollars in damages and losses. Many courageous and innocent civilians also came under attack from the roaming mobs for taking a stand against the rioters and defending the city in which they live and love. These citizens placed themselves in front of shop windows and others left vulnerable to protect those who could not protect themselves. It is these people that "Riffs Not Riots" aims to thank and appreciate. More...
