Originating from the mind of Kai Giritli (guitars, clean vocals) in 2008,
Subversion is a 5 piece melodic tech metal band from Kent in the UK.

Utilising hard hitting frontmanship from Jay Shields, Kai's soaring hook filled clean vocals, guitar riffs that sway from heavy groove to epic melody, and the laser tight percussion of Ben Atkinson; Subversion like to dabble in the arts of odd time signatures spliced with huge thought inducing soundscapes.

"Juddering tech metal blends in with the kind of soaring melodies built for arenas to create a sound that is both wall-shakingly heavy and infectiously melodic. Nailing both ends of the metal spectrum, Subversion do serious damage when they get heavy but manage to still get you reaching for the lighter as they reel it in a bit"
