"Maid Of Gold", a brand new song from VEXT — the new New Jersey/New York-based heavy rock band featuring singer Tommy "Vext" Cummings (DIVINE HERESY, SNOT), guitarist Billy DiNapoli and MUTINY WITHIN drummer Bill Fore — can be streamed using the SoundCloud player below. The track, which features a guest solo by Doc Coyle of GOD FORBID, was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Dan Malloy at Vipen Studios and is described by VEXT as "just a taste of what's to come within the next couple of months."
In other news, Vext joined DEFTONES on stage last night (Sunday, March 10) in Montclair, New Jersey to peform the DEFTONES track "7 Words". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
VEXT's debut EP, "Impermanence", was released last July.
On the evening of September 19, 2010, Vext was the victim of a brutal attack at his home in Brooklyn. Having suffered severe injuries to his skull, abdomen and an open compound fracture to his left arm, Tommy was rushed to the ER. With medical bills soaring above seventy-five thousand dollars, his friends in the music scene banded together to help raise funds.
Enter Roadrunner recording artists MUTINY WITHIN. "We heard that GOD FORBID was doing a benefit concert for Tommy and when we found out why, we immediately jumped on the bill," said MUTINY WITHIN bassist Andrew Jacobs. A few months later, Andrew introduced Tommy to Bill. After seeing Fore perform with the Angel Vivaldi band, Angel and Bill joined this new musical effort and appeared on the aforementioned EP.
