C-Nathan and Al started off in a band called OVERTHROW, after a few years and a few member changes it was Chad on bass, Chris and Al on guitar and Nathan on drums. We did that line up for about a year. The singer quit and Al took over on vocals we got Tyler filling in on guitar. We recorded a couple songs (thats why the vocals are diffrent on the Steadfast comp then on the CD). THat lasted for a couple of months the music wasn't coming together as planned so Al went back to guitar, Chris on vocals. It didn't sound like OVERTHROW so we killed all of those songs and started CHALICE. F.L.Y.-Why did you form the band? C-Most of us have been involved in music for most of our lives .This was an opportunity to start a band that we all got into musically and lyrically. F.L.Y.-What is the bands major influences? C.-We all have different influences but the main ones are Carcass, Edge of Insanity, and Bolt Thrower. F.L.Y.-What is the scene like down there in Florida?
