MAY 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH
Mike "Longhair" Annis - Vocals
MATREKIS was developed in October of 2009. The group formed with the goal
of reviving and preserving the sound of roots metal. With influences
ranging from the likes of Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Iron Maiden and
Megadeth, Matrekis infuses power, drive and passion into every song. This
produces an old-school metal sound that blends commanding vocals, heavy
power chords, ripping guitar solos, thundering bass lines, and hammering
drums into a unique variety of songs that leave you wanting more.
