River's Edge Bands & Artists
Musical Inspiration: Metallica, Machine Head, Trivium, Battlecross
Talion was formed in 2011 by drummer Bill Simmons and guitarist/vocalist Nick Fischer. After playing occasional shows in 2012, the band added guitarist Steve Rippe in early 2013 and became very active in the local music scene, playing over a dozen shows in 2013 alone. Talion have opened for nationally touring acts Exodus, Battlecross, Avatar, and traveled to Cleveland, OH in August 2013 to open for Havok. Dillon Kortz was recruited to play bass in early 2014, followed by the departure of Rippe later that same year. After a brief hiatus, Talion returned to release their One Man War EP in April of 2015 at a well attended EP Release show. After spending time with Ezekiel Kaplan as an interim guitar player, Mike Szemanski was added on lead guitar in late 2015.
