In The Presence Of Wolves



Parius is a Melodic Death Metal band (think Black Dahlia Murder, Lamb of God, Dethklok, etc.) from Philadelphia, PA. They formed in early 2011 and quickly began writing songs and playing shows. They played their first show, a 10 minute set, only about a month after forming. The original lineup featured current vocalist Louis Thierry, guitarists Ryan Rauch and Valera Godin, bassist John Stank, and drummer Joe Coates. With this lineup, Parius released their first 5 song demo, “Demo-n” and another 3 song demo both in 2011. However, guitarist Valera Godin followed by drummer Joe Coates soon had to separately leave the band. Fortunately, guitarist George Fenton soon joined as well as drummer Ian Staab. This is now the current and likely final lineup of Parius. Parius played many successful shows over the course of 2012-2013 and continued writing new songs.

They are currently in the studio recording these new songs, as well as re-recording some songs from the 2011 demos to be featured on their upcoming, debut album.
