BAND'S HISTORY

OUR STORY BEGINS IN 1993.  PAT AND BRYAN HAVE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE THE 5TH GRADE AND UPON ENTERING THEIR SOPHMORE YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL THEIR INTEREST IN MUSIC GREW MORE.  IT WAS AROUND THIS TIME WHEN BRYAN HAD BOUGHT HIS GUITAR.  KNOWING THAT PAT ALREADY HAD ONE THEY DECIDED TO LEARN TOGETHER.  LATER ON THAT YEAR PAT DECIDED TO ASK A FRIEND HE MET THROUGH THE HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND TO ADD ON TO THE GROUP.(THAT WOULD BE MIKE).  AT THIS POINT BOTH BRYAN AND PAT WERE PLAYING GUITAR SO WE WERE NOT REALLY A FULL BAND YET. AND MIKE ONLY BRINGING HIS SNARE DRUM AND HIGH HAT TO OUR FIRST PRACTICE DIDN'T HELP OUT EITHER.  WE WERE HORRIBLE. YET, WE DIDN'T GIVE UP HOPE. WE ASSEMBLED IN PAT'S GARAGE A WEEK LATER, FULL DRUM SET AND ALL. AFTER A COUPLE LESSONS AND CONSTANT PRACTICE, WE GREW ACCUSTOMED TO OUR INSTRUMENTS AND EACH OTHERS PLAYING STYLE. SOON AFTER WE WERE FOLLOWING THE PATH OF ALL THE BANDS WE LOVED AND HAD DISCOVERED THE FUN OF PLAYING COVER SONGS. THE FIRST COVERS WE LEARNED WERE METALLICA'S "FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS" AND NIRVANA'S "BREED".  AS TIME WENT ON, WE LEARNED MORE COVERS AND JAMMED ON MINI ORIGINAL PIECES FOR A WHILE. BUT TO DUE TO OTHER THINGS HAPPENING IN OUR LIVES, NOT TO MENTION LACK OF BASSIST AND SINGER, WE SLOWED DOWN. WE PLAYED ON AND OFF FOR THE NEXT YEAR OR SO BUT CAME TO A COMPLETE HAULT OUR SENIOR YEAR. BRYAN BOUGHT A BASS AND HOOKED UP WITH A COUPLE OF FRIENDS TO FORM THE BAND ORACLE. ORACLE ONLY LASTED FOR THAT SUMMER. BY THE FALL, WE SLOWLY STARTED TO PRACTICE TOGETHER AGAIN. BETWEEN COLLEGE AND WORK, WE PRACTICED ON THE WEEKENDS FROM TIME TO TIME. BY NEXT SUMMER, DUE TO PAT AND HIS GIRLFRIEND SEPERATING AND BRYAN'S GIRLFRIEND GOING OFF TO COLLEGE IN SOME HICK TOWN FAR AWAY, WE WERE ABLE TO PUT MORE FOCUS ON OUR MUSIC. AT THIS TIME, PAT DECIDED TO RECRUITE STEVE INTO OUR BAND AS OUR SINGER.   NOW THAT THE BAND WAS ALMOST COMPLETE BRYAN DECIDED TO PLAY BASS AND SING BACL UP IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE BAND.  THERE WAS ONLY ONE PROBLEM NOW....STEVE COULD NOT SING. AFTER A COUPLE MONTHS OF HOPING THAT HE WOULD GET BETTER WE FINALLY DECIDED THAT HE WOULD HAVE TO GO.  WE BELIEVED THAT HE KNEW WHAT WE WERE UP TO CAUSE EVERYTIME HE WOULD TALK TO ONE OF US HE WOULD TELL US HOW MUCH THE BAND MEANS TO HIM.  SO SINCE HE MADE IT DIFFICULT TO KICK HIM WE DECIDE TO FAKE A BREAK UP.   SINCE BRYAN WAS AWAY AT COLLEGE WE HAD TO DO THIS OVER E-MAIL.  WELL ONE WEEK LATER IT WORKED.  THE BAND  HAD "BROKEN UP".  WELL NOW THAT WERE IN SEARCH OF SINGER BRYAN DECIDED TO TAKE THE JOB UNTIL WE WERE ABLE TO FIND SOMEONE ELSE.  WELL WE NEVER FOUND SOMEONE ELSE SO BRYAN BECAME OUR PERMANENT SINGER.  NOW THAT THE BAND FINALLY WAS COMPLETE, WHICH IS KINDA FUNNY CONSIDERING NO OTHER MEMBERS WERE ADDED,  THINGS STARTED TO MOVE FOR US WE STARTED WRITING OUR OWN SONGS.  COMING UP WITH THE MUSIC WAS EASIER NOW.  AND IT WAS AROUND THIS TIME WHEN BRYAN BROKE UP WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND.  THIS LATER INSPIRED BRYAN TO WRITE LYRICS FOR THE BAND.  NOW THEY HAD THERE FIRST SONG COMPLETED CALLED "THE ANGER WITHIN"  THIS WAS QUICKLY FOLLOWED UP WITH OTHER SONGS LIKE "THOUGHT YOU WERE THE ONE", "FINAL FAREWELL" AND THE BANDS FAVORITE "MY DESTINY" WHICH WAS HELPED WRITTEN BY A FRIEND OF BRYAN'S.  NOW WITH THE BAND'S MOTAVATION OF ACHIEVING THERE DREAMS, NEW SONGS IN THE WORKS, AND  NOTHING HOLDING THEM BACK, NOT EVEN THAT ASS HOLE COP WHO TRIED TO STOP THEM FROM PLAYING,  NO HAVEN IS READY FOR THE NEXT STEP.  THE QUESTION IS ARE YOU READY FOR NO HAVEN?
