Risen from the ashes of past indifferences...Despairagon lives!!!
Despairagon is comprised of lifetime fans of heavy metal and thrash, and have culminated years of material and ideas into a new creation. The band started with Adam "Van" Vanover and Rick Cox, former members of many different local metal acts including: Degrade, File 13, After The Eighth Day, and Decadence of Divinity, which spent over two years writing and conditioning a newer form of harder thrash.
After carving steel into steel, the two have added Josh "Angelgrinder" Dickinson to provide an onslaught in vocals, and Drew White, an erratic, energetic bass guitarist to the fold. The only thing left to do now is to bring in another great guitar player, to reach harmonic heaviness on a whole other level, which the band is currently auditioning for.
"The songs are melodic and completely driven, in the veins of 90's thrash, hardcore, grindcore, and heavy fuckin metal. The lyrics are both disturbing, but emotionally gripping, and driven behind Angelgrinder's aggressive style. Despairagon is the mix of heavy grit, and technical style that sounds nothing like anything else right now." -quote from Rick Cox.
