SHVRIKEN started in 2016 with vocalist Shawn Talacero and guitarist Dave Orat playing metalcore and nu-metal covers. After various lineup changes, SHVRIKEN eventually solidified when bassist RR Porminal and drummer Jose Perpetua joined the stride.
SHVRIKEN has come to be known for their extended-range guitars, groovy riffs, and energetic live performances with theatrical and orchestral backing tracks added to the mix.
SHVRIKEN brings fire to their shows with their distinct, Japanese Sengoku Era-inspired outfits. With their sound forged from the influence of international acts such as Meshuggah, Periphery, Veil of Maya, Kadinja, and Born of Osiris, SHVRIKEN’s sound is a mix of modern metal with a slight hint of progressiveness.
