In today’s underground metal scene, it’s easy to get lost in a dense fog of endless breakdowns and big hair. As the genre gains popularity, there seem to be fewer exceptions to these traits in an overdone, over-saturated market. BESIEGED is one of the exceptions.

Hailing from Michigan’s tri-cities, BESIEGED is an explosive force in underground music; they do exactly as they please, with complete disregard for fleeting trends in the scene. Drawing upon an extremely vast array of influences, the five members of BESIEGED have created their own devastating sound, combining melodic metal with the more punishing elements of hardcore, while staying true to their passionate musical vision.

With several national tours already under their belts, BESIEGED aren’t just turning heads – they’re grabbing skulls.



Michigan’s BESIEGED have announced the departure of vocalist Mattie Montgomery from their line-up. Montgomery, who joined the band earlier this year just in time to record vocals for the band’s debut album Atlantis, has left on amicable terms to pursue other musical endeavors.

The band released the following statement:

“Mattie Montgomery, our vocalist, has decided to pursue musical goals that are differing from those of the rest of the band. Mattie has been a great addition to BESIEGED, and, more importantly, he has been a great friend to all of us.”

In the wake of this departure, BESIEGED are currently looking for a vocalist. Anyone interested in possibly taking on this role can find more information at:
