Struggling to liberate the creative thoughts
contained in the heads of three individuals,
Cadence immerged as the reflection of music to come.
With musical influences such as
The Deftones, Incubus, Factory 81, Drowning Pool,
Relative Ash, Foo Fighters, and many other brilliant artists,
Cadence "fuses melody with heavy riffs and rhythmic sounds" (MP3.com).
This Massachusetts-based hard rock band
has taken their roots in the Boston metal scene
and transformed them into a brand new genre,
colorfully referred to by many as "Groove Metal."

"We're not really into genres,
but groove metal does sound pretty damn cool.
I guess it's music that'll get you
up and moving," says Tim, the guitarist for Cadence.
Cadence has grown as a band in the past year
and gelled together into what you see today.
The subtle line up changes since their
formation in 2000 has not dulled
the band's intensity at all,
they are still the powerful force that
lit up the local music scene a short two years ago.


In the summer of 2002 Cadence was offered
an east coast summer tour with Chestrockfield,
Balistic, and Beer Death.
The tour was cancelled in early June before it had started
due to complications with the headliner, Chestrockfield.
Cadence is now intensively writing new music
with hopes to build a larger fan base
and take the world by storm.
