Shattered Systems

Shattered Systems is a five piece Progressive Metal Band formed in Tucson AZ, but now resides in Los Angeles California.

Formed in Fall of 2009 in Tucson AZ, Shattered Systems is a band that intends to make a permanent imprint of their sound in the Progressive Metal genre with incredible skills and musicality. Starting off covering 80's Metal and Progressive Metal songs, Founding members Avelino Ramirez (Keyboards) and Nathaniel Dominguez (Guitars) were in need of some serious musicians capable of performing the demanding technical and co-writting skills they needed.

Performing many shows at various great venues including The Rialto Theater, Mesa Arts Center and The Rock, they began forming their sound over years of experimentation with the genres. Along the way, discovering bands such as Dream Theater, Animals As Leaders, Haken, Lost In Thought, Dream Evil and Helloween, the inspiration began to unfold and the band switched from covers to only performing their own songs.

They spent a lot of time writing their music and looking for locations with a demand for Progressive Metal.
As the evidence of the location weaknesses for their genre increased, they began to realize they needed to be proactive. Understanding all three of their musical intentions they relocated to Los Angeles, California for Musicians Institute for the knowledge to write better and better music and to find their last two missing pieces of the puzzle which include a bassist and vocalist .

On November, 1st of 2012 their first official single entitled 'Introduction' Embarking their first set stone in the music industry. Now with 85+ minutes of written music ranging from the blazing speed to the beautiful, they know it will leave an emotional impact on the future listeners, Shattered Systems is now working on releasing their Debut Album very very soon!!!

Now with the new addition to the band (Lucas) Vocals and (Brady) Bass, the Progressive Metal band will now be able to start fresh in the heart of Los Angeles CA.
