Eightfold Path started in early 2002 as a conceptual project, with a focus on the writing process of the music evolving on a psychological and spiritual level rather than being structurally arranged in a traditional sense. We compose from the heart, taking influences from life, people, cultures, and experiences. Staying away from a particular genre or style allows any type of person to show interest in the sound, finding at least one element they can truly connect with. Eightfold Path's members come from all musical backgrounds, creating a striking blend of metallic rock flowing with assaulting guitar riffs, memorable choruses, and crushing breakdowns. The music comes in many shades, infused with a surprising blend of atmospheric textures, soaring vocals over beautiful guitar harmonies and smooth bass lines, and a driven backbeat that accents tightly yet easily goes haywire once the pounding rapid-fire double kick drum decides to rear it's' ugly head. Without drawing a comparison, we are influenced by incredible musicians such as ZAO, Faith No More, Glassjaw, Vision of Disorder, At the Gates, Depeche Mode, and Radiohead, just to name a few. Eightfold Path is best experienced in a live setting, where the amazing energy and interaction between the band members can pour directly out onto the audience. A spark is lit instantly, shown by the crowds' excitement and reaction. Offstage, each of the guys strives to make this band their life and future, using previous experiences and training in music theory, production, recording, engineering, promotion, marketing, knowledge of the scene and industry to push things forward. We welcome the trials ahead of us with arms wide open. If you are drawn to what you see and hear, join us on our path. One love, respect, and hope for peace and a better tomorrow in the cold, dark years we currently live in... -Mikey 8FP Eightfold Path is: Matt Harvey - Vocals Shane McDougal - Bass Mike Kilun - Guitars Shaun McInnis - Guitars Andrew Soule - Drums.
