Music News: Echofist Together Again

From their press release:
In 2007 Echofist was one of the most powerful, explosive, and by far the most original progressive metal band on the Oklahoma City music scene. The collaborative efforts by the five musicians involved weaved a sound and style all unique to their own. Masterfully blending elements of jazz, blues, classical, and modern rock with bone crunching metal tones, Echofist commanded the stage with authority.

Although the project dis-banded in late 2009, their influence is still felt. Currently Joeix Deadboix, known for his theatrics and soulful lyrics, is fronting one of the fastest rising bands in the market with "Ugly Seed".

The architect, or prog-father Roy Limon, continues to create mind blowing compositions as the lead seven string guitarist for the crushing hard-core metal band "Indeed Sir".

Jon Parr, whose chord playing and finger tapping five string bass style added depth to the Echofist sound, also has found success co-forming the highly acclaimed southern rockers "Shotgun Rebellion".

Classically trained keyboardist Carter Cox and English native punk drummer Gor Hudson also have remained active in various projects in and around the area.

After a tribute video to their iconic single "Cut Your Tongue" was created and posted by Gor, the former band-mates began to receive requests and pleas for a reunion. As winter approached in 2011, the schedules began to open up creating the possibility.

Finally the prayers of the OKC metal scene has been answered...

Echofist is together again.
