ounded upon their primary goal to "kick some ass and drink some beer", Shatterpoint formed in September 2001, and immediately began recording and preforming the songs that made up their "Cathartic Attack". Throughout the last year and a half, Shatterpoint has been playing every show they can get their hands on, from rowdy local bar shows, to much larger venues, preforming with such other acts as Behemoth (UK), Amon Amarth, Vince Neil and many others. With the recent release of their first CD entitled Consequences (2003) the band was ready to make their statement in the world of heavy music. Created through a mutual addiction to anger and aggression, Shatterpoint's msuic has been forged with a strong appreciation for music, technique and progression much in the style of the metal bands of the eighties and nineties while managing to maintain their own voice of originality. Lead singer/rhythm guitarist, Shane Drake, was largely responsible for the sound of the band with his rhythms peaking out underneath his versatile voice, along with the support of fellow members Greg Wright (guitar), Chris Zeeman (bass) and Jeremy Baxter (drums).
