<p align="left" class="style1"> I N F I D E L is one of the most exciting rock bands playing today. Their fast, heavy, songs can not be ignored by anyone in the crowd. Each one stands on it's own, but fits within the whole of the set almost as chapters in a novel.

Formed in 2004 by Bryan Shiflet and Jason Goad as a more of a project than a band, the chemistry between the dynamics of Bryan's off-time riffing with Jason's louder than life skin beating laid the foundation for what would be much more of a musical endavor than either one expected. After 6 months of writing and jamming, the duo began booking shows in Austin, San Marcos, and San Antonio as INFIDEL, catching the eye of veteran Austin musician Tanner Swain. Soon Tanner would be playing bass for INFIDEL, and with Tanner on board filling in the gaps, laying down the low end, and as another vocalist, INFIDEL was a complete full fledged 3 piece band.

Since then, INFIDEL has nurtured a growing and loyal following. They are currently in the studio tracking for their as yet untitled debut album due in late 2008.

Their poetic blend of rock, metal, and punk is abrasive, yet melodic and intricate. This cacophony of energy provides the soundscape to their dark yet positive and enlightening subject and lyric matter. Infidel's music is heavy, melodic, inspirational, defiant & at times epic. It will seduce your soul, but tear your head off, often times, in the same riff.
