Origin: KS, USA
Genres: Traditional Metal


This band is billed as either a Manilla Road side project or an outright Mark Shelton solo project, except that the band is named after the keyboardist/bassist, which is a bit confusing. Anyway, the listener should know what to expect -- Shelton has one of the most distinctive voices in metal, and even the music isn't a million miles from Manilla Road, though it's a bit more thrashy, a bit more progressive, and arguably a bit more dynamic as well. Beyond The Boundaries Of Sin was released in 2012 and Manilla Road has recorded two albums since as of this writing, so it's not clear whether this project is ongoing or not. In any case, Manilla Road fans should definitely check out this band.
