Vice is a Manchester-based Metal band, formed from a shared vision to breathe fresh life into the music World and to display our diverse collective tastes and influences through our music.
Our brand of head banging, hair swirling, blistering modern Metal is full of powerful riffs and hooks, time and tempo changes, coupled with an energetic, passionate show and a high standard of performance and musicianship.
Our songs have the feel of powerful anthems with strong Melodies and Hooks! We are influenced by bands like Machine Head, Meshuggah, Lamb of God and Dream Theater and combine a blistering guitar attack, powerful virtuoso rhythm section and stinging Vocals. 2016 culminated in our debut performance at the Mighty Bloodstock Open Air and we have shared the stage with Artists such as Sepultura, Skindred, Hellyeah, Absolva, One Machine, Tim (Ripper) Owens, Blaze Bayley, and Babylon Fire, receiving fantastic feedback from fans, as well as critical acclaim from the likes of Get Your Rock Out, Planet Mosh, Manchester Rocks, The Moshville Times, Metal Temple and Rockfiend Publications. 2018 has seen us play HRH Metal, Hammerfest X and Amplified Festival along with our first European tour in Belgium.
We have built a very strong reputation as an exciting, quality live band and our debut album ‘The First Chapter’ was released in April 2017 to overwhelming acclaim from critics and fans alike.
Vice is Tom (Aki) Atkinson, Lead Guitar/Lead vocals, Aiden Lord Bass Guitar/Backing Vocal, Connor Summers, Drums.
