CONFLICTED Join NIGHTMARE RECORDS

February 14th, 2011

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

More information on the release of NEVER BE TAMED, including audio samples and pre-order info, can be found at Nightmare Records

CONFLICTED – Award Winnings

December 14th, 2010

ImageFM.ca announced their 2010 annual awards winners! CONFLICTED walk away with the following three awards:

CONFLICTED’s Song Victor Victoria – WINS Best Progressive Metal Single of the Year

CONFLICTED’s Lead Vocalist Jason Orton – WINS Best Male Vocalist of the Year

CONFLICTED’s Guitarist Mark Owen – WINS Best Guitarist of the Year

ImageFM.ca 2010 Awards will be presented during an online party on January 8, 2011 starting at 7:30 p.m.

CONFLICTED were also named “Best Metal Band” at the 2010 The Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMAs).

CONFLICTED have risen to become one of the most revered and “must see” live acts in their region, having headlined many of their own shows, plus having opened for international touring artists, all to stellar audience reception.  The responses from music insiders have been emphatically and overwhelmingly positive.

Fronted by the gifted and talented Jason Orton — a professionally trained, 4-octave range vocalist — he brings what one would consider a Halford-esque tonality, intensity, and vibrancy to CONFLICTED, with vocal and stage performances that have been widely critically acclaimed.

Orton, in the opinion of many, is poised to become the next metallic singing superstar hailing from Toronto to achieve world recognition, in league with Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and James LaBrie (Dream Theatre), the latter of which Orton is often favourably compared to.

CONFLICTED’s epically orchestrated and powerful, theatre/arena rock — one that expertly blends modern and classic elements to create a musicality distinctively their own — is skillfully and dynamically delivered by ROBERT MARK OWEN (guitar), JOHN KOLODZIEJ (bass), COREY STOLL (drums), and RON DE COSTE (keys), all of whom themselves are skilled virtuosos with years of experience which resonates both live and in the studio.

CONFLICTED are currently playing live shows in support the forthcoming release entitled “Never Be Tamed”.

Please join CONFLICTED at Rockpile this Thursday, December 16, 2010 on at 8:30 p.m. with Warmachine and Mind Mechanics. 5555 Dundas Street West (at 427), Etobicoke. $10. All Ages and 19+ Show. Doors at 7:00 p.m. Please respond and circulate this event on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=144793098892191#!/event.php?eid=135357563187821

Below is a link to CONFLICTED’s video of the song “Fallen”:
