Fueled by an insatiable urge to create and collaborate, heavy metal’s latest incarnation seeks to challenge all that we believe to be true with their new project Disciples of Verity (DOV). Featuring such heavy-hitters as Corey Glover (Living Colour), Corey Pierce (God Forbid), George Pond (Negative Sky) and Greg Antine (MADJUL), this all-star band is unleashing an onslaught to the senses with a new sound that can only be described as “a new breed of crossover Metal”.

The band formed just over a year ago after mutual projects brought the foursome together. With Pond as the common denominator, having played with each of the artists throughout his career, his songs with Antine were quickly embraced by the others and work on their debut album Pragmatic Sanction started immediately.

Over the next eight months, DOV feverishly cranked out eight heavy, hook-laden songs with one distinct element—their infectious, melodic grooves. Ranging from Hardcore, Metalcore and even Active Rock, the band knew that their debut would be like nothing else in the industry and brought in a veritable “who’s who” of the hard rock and metal industry to up the ante.

Platinum-Selling and Grammy-Award winning artists including Morgan Rose (Sevendust), Phil Demmel (Machine Head), Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy), Tara McLeod (Kitty), Mike Antine (Majul) JJ Sammataro (Negative Sky) and solo artist Joe Gareri made special guest appearances on the CD, making it one of the biggest metal collaborations to date.

“I had a few of these amazing artists in mind while writing this material,” said Pond. “I know this sounds a little crazy but it’s true. I picked the song each player would play on according to what I thought would best suit them. I am such a fan of all of their work and each guest did such a great job and brought so much dimension to this record.”

Pragmatic Sanction was produced by Pond and Charlie Berezansky (Vexas) at Rival Sound Studios in Barnegat, NJ with additional production by Jay Muench and Corey Pierce. Engineering was provided by Muench at GORGRIN studios in Toms River, NJ, Pond at Spidersound in Jackson, NJ, Berezansky at Rival Sound and Corey Lowery (Seether) in Atlanta, GA.

A true labor of love by some of the best musicians and professionals in the industry today, Pragmatic Sanction is not only a testament to DOV’s creativity and ingenuity but finally a project worthy of posing the question “Am I a seeker of truth or simply a Disciple Of Verity?”.
