Invicta formed in the beginning of 2008 when guitarist/songwriter D-J and singer Schii combined their talents and influences. Melodies and harmonies reminiscent of Alice in Chains and Alter Bridge fuse with guitar riffs in the styles of Mudvayne and Between the Buried and Me. Breakdowns in the vein of August Burns Red and It Dies Today mesh with softer passages similar to Incubus and Switchfoot.
Invicta Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Invicta.
The Nashville-based progressive metal band “Invicta” (featured in an edition of Unearthing The Metal Underground) has announced the debut of a new music video (see below) for the first single from a new album, due out in January of 2013. Along with the music video for “The Peripheral Sound,” the band also announced the addition of two new instrumentalists to the band in an exclusive interview with MetalUnderground.com’s Frank Serafine.
The band’s first album, “Split by the Sun,” was recorded in Cleveland by acclaimed producer Tony Gammalo (Chimaira, Drowning Pool, Misery Signals) and the band has since undergone several lineup changes with regards to their drummers, bassists, and second guitarists. Now solidified, the band looks to break through to a larger audience with an even more progressive sophomore release, detailed by vocalist and co-writer Mike Schii.
