Vile - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.



Since its formation in 1996, Vile has maintained a consistent, although patient, creation and release of high quality extreme metal. Aficionados of American death metal know Vile and anxiously anticipate each release and tour. Vile prefers to put quality over quantity and therefore has often been proclaimed by metal media as one of America's top extreme metal bands. Judge for yourself!

California Bay Area musicians and audio engineers Colin Davis and Juan Urteaga formed Vile in 1996 out of the remnants of three bands: Entropy, Lords Of Chaos and Sporadic Psychosis. They wrote and self recorded the Unearthed demo and were pleasantly surprised by its acceptance among the extreme metal crowd in the Bay Area and internationally. Vile also have George and Alex of Cannibal Corpse to thank for their help is spreading the word about Vile and helping to get them their initial media coverage.

Since the original 3 song demo was released, Vile released the Vile-ation demo in 1997, Stench of the Deceased CD in 1999, Depopulate CD in 2002, The New Age of Chaos in 2005 and recently, in 2011, Metamorphosis has been released as an MP3 album and is to be self released under Vile's own label, Ninth Underworld Records, and licensed in the months to follow.

Vile's musical progression has taken them from Floridian influenced progressive compositions to more recently, European black/death/heavy metal influences where melody and memorable song structure are more prominently displayed.

Behind the scenes, producer/writer/composer Colin Davis has continued to project his goal of building a solid, diverse and high quality range of materials that satisfy a broad range of fans of extreme metal. Each release is intended to stand on its own and to be an offering that keeps the band sounding fresh and modern.

Because Vile's musical composer is also an audio engineer by trade, Vile has always been a platform for his recording skills and is intended to help keep the standards for extreme metal recording high.

Vile books and performs tours to support each release and hopes to include South America and other territories previously un-reached with the support touring for Metamorphosis in 2011 and 2012.
