Metal Queen Management is pleased to announce the addition of CONFLICTED to the family of internationally renowned, prog/power metal label Nightmare Records.
CONFLICTED’s much anticipated debut album, entitled NEVER BE TAMED (Nightmare/Sony/Red), will be released internationally, in CD and digital formats, on April 12, 2011.
Formed in Toronto, Canada in 2008, CONFLICTED produce a truly unique, category-defying, genre-expanding modern progressive/power metal sound via a combination of seasoned technical ability, a fervency for volume and a passion for power.
CONFLICTED is fronted by the astounding four-octave vocals of singer JASON ORTON, who consistently delivers pitch-perfect tones rich with both ferocity and emotion. In perfect contrast, neo-classically influenced guitarist MARK OWEN possesses a fiery, virtuosic stranglehold on the fretboard. Rounding out CONFLICTED are the symphonic atmospheres created by RON DE COSTE’s masterful keyboard work, the complimentary melodic undertones of bassist JOHN KOLODZIEJ, and the precision percussive onslaught of Drummer COREY STOLL.
CONFLICTED are best known for delivering stunning must-see live performances. Their rising popularity and reputation culminated in them being named Best Metal Band at the 2010 Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMAs), as well as earning three prominent awards at ImageFM Radio’s 2010 Annual Independent Music Awards (Male Vocalist of the Year, Guitarist of the Year and Progressive Single of the Year).
CONFLICTED will be touring throughout 2011 in support of NEVER BE TAMED.
Current tour dates include:
Mar. 19 – The Hardball Cafe, 8750 Hwy. 25N, Milton, ON
Apr. 16 – Rockpile Bar and Night Club, 5555 Dundas St. W., Etobicoke, ON – CD Release Party
