Aversed was formed by guitarist and vocalist Sungwoo Jeong and bassist Martin Epstein as a cover band in the summer of 2009. The band began composing original music in 2010 and recorded their first demo soon after. Aversed was joined by Alden Marchand on lead guitar in 2011 followed by Anthony Medaglia on drums in 2012.
After a year of steady performing with bands such as Ensiferum, Exhumed, and Korpiklaani, Anthony parted ways and Aversed went into a year and a half long hiatus. New life was brought into the band with the acquisition of drummer Jeff Saltzman in December 2014, when Aversed began writing and performing once again. The lineup was completed with the entrance of Haydee Irizarry, whose multifaceted vocal talents brought a new energy and direction to the band. Over the course of the next year, the group recorded their debut EP Renewal while playing alongside acts such as Nile, Sonata Arctica, Tengger Cavalry and Unleash the Archers among others.
Renewal is slated for release on November 1st 2016 on physical CD and across all major digital platforms.
