Formed in September 2010, Noveria rose from the ashes of several bands before it, starting with just Brandon "Paco" Ratliff on guitar and and Chris Jackson on drums. In January 2011, they recruited Brandon's long time friend David Carter on bass, and eventually added vocalist Victoria Bowman in October 2011. A few of the songs they play are older, going back to 2005 for two of them, but the three years Noveria has been around has seen a gradual shift in sound to melodic hard rock with some progressive and metal elements. Having just released their debut album "Prologue" in August 2013, they won't claim to be "nothing like anything you've ever heard before!", but they are working day by day at making their mark, having played with national acts like Taproot, Smile Empty Soul, Psychostick, Boy Hits Car, Polkadot Cadaver, and Primer 55. And as cliche as it is to say, this is just the beginning.
