Bio
"Looking back while moving forward". That's probably the best description of the loud, aggressive sound that TRUENT creates, drawing influences from 70's hard rock all the way into modern day metal bands and everything in between. There is an incredible amount of skill and talent to be found in TRUENT, each member possesses incredible skill on their respective instruments and have a knack for songwriting not normally found in bands their age. Their debut 4-song EP 'House of Cards' is now complete, give it a listen!

I had asked Micheal Watson(drummer) for some info:

My brother and I have played together for years but have only recently formed a complete band. We decided to post an ad on Craigslist to see who we could find and surprisingly enough, that's how we found the rest of our band. I didn't really expect to find anyone around our age group with the talent that these guys have but we got lucky somehow. Brenden  is our rhythm guitarist  who we played with for about a month or so before we found Trevor, our singer, who knew of a bassist, Gabi, that was interested in playing with us. We showed them songs that my brother and I had worked on for years and they liked what they heard and we've just kind of went on from there.
