Bio

Lavidius is an Australian heavy metal band from Brisbane, formed in 2008. The band is composed of Nizzy Sheridan (lead vocals), Jon Shedden (lead and rhythm guitar), Jay Hyndman (lead and rhythm guitar), Nathan Stiffel (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Ben Bowen (drums). The band released their debut EP “Prison Within” on September 20, 2014.

Lavidius is considered to be a groove metal band, with elements of thrash and melodic metal. Like many modern metal bands, vocals are primarily screams and growls. The music mixes catchy guitar licks, drums with double kicking and hard rock beats, dark and/or gothic overtones, harmonized dual-guitar and tasteful use of breakdowns. The band has cited being influenced by bands such as Metallica, Megadeath, Pantera, Arch Enemy, Opeth, Mudvayne, Chimaira, Amon Amarth, Devildriver, Lamb of God, Trivium and Five Finger Death Punch.
