Artist Profile


Toronto, Ontario
In the iceclad realm of Canada, where the land, the sea and sky converge; four young men step forth from scarlet mists to propagate their scourge. As the sun begins to rise on 2016, VESPERIA have already met with international praise and repute by the primal incantation that is their vast and resplendent sound.

Established in 2012 by lead vocalist/ bassist Morgan Rider, VESPERIA have ascended at an unsettling velocity. Having conquered the entirety of their native Canada, won the 2015 Wacken Metal Battle, unabatingly releasing distinctive material and now featuring some of Canada’s finest musicians, VESPERIA is poised to subjugate the Earth.
