Seeds Of Perdition
Taking root in early thrash and death metal, and combined with dark, foreboding ambiance, Seeds of Perdition strives to create a more atmospheric style of death/thrash metal. While the trend in extreme music today is towards technicality and virtuosity, Seeds presents a more raw and intense sound that gives a simpler, yet heavier vibe.
Seeds of Perdition formed in Philadelphia, P.A. in 2010 when founding members Daniel Loughry and George Cathers, formerly of Insatanity and Polterchrist, decided to take a different direction from past projects.

With the departure of Matt Frost and Steve Raimer, early 2013 saw the addition of Chris Natalini on vocals. Chris brings in his experience from such bands as Dawn of Correction, Circle of Fear, and Blood Feast. He is also a patch wearing member and leader of the NYDM's Pennsylvania chapter. The band was then signed to local Philadelphia label, Born of Chaos Records. Their debut 5 song EP entitled “From Within” was released end of May 2013.
