Starting in early 2009 in between a rigorous MUNICIPAL WASTE touring schedule, guitarist Ryan Waste began working on a new project entitled VOLTURE. As a longtime fan of bands like MERCYFUL FATE, HEAVY LOAD, and JUDAS PRIEST he thought it would only be approproate to form a proper band in that vein. With only a few rehearsals it quickly became a reality and the electricity of VOLTURE is currently spreading fast!
"Ever since I was a young headbanger, I dreamed of doing a real heavy metal band," Ryan said. "Growing up on JUDAS PRIEST and eventually delving into more obscure NWOBHM bands, I yearned to have one of my own. It wasn't until 8 years ago when I met our vocalist, Brent Hubbard, that I thought this would actually be possible. His natural singing ability floored me upon the first note and I knew we needed to start a band. It's been a long time coming, but I am proud to say we have arrived in full force to shock the world with VOLTURE! In this heavy metal ensemble, I returned to my musical roots as a bass player alongside the phenomenal shredder Nick Poulos on guitar. Joined by veteran Barry Cover behind the kit, we are now stronger than ever."
