  1. Wrought

    Wrought is a band based in the town of Fayetteville, Arkansas; it was formed on Halloween of 2004, but played its first venue on March 22, 2005. Wrought's merging of vocals, solos and rhythms over a southern-metal hump has proven to be popular with heavy metal fans. The release of their eponymous EP in the summer of 2005 caused a surge in popularity that was followed by their first full length release, both of which were completely self-recorded, produced, and promoted. After generating a dedicated legion of followers during its run from 2005 through 2008, the band went on indefinite hiatus from late 2008 through most of 2009 because two members, Eric Halsell and Jay Hollingshead, departed to pursue other interests. Guitarist Dan Robinson spent nearly six months attempting to find replacements for the original lineup. The unfortunate breakup of another Fayetteville band, Rise to Ruin, left drummer Chap Huskinson and bassist Sam Kazery looking for a new home for their talents. In early 2009, the two bands merged to re-form Wrought. After several months of practice, Wrought played again live for the first time after their hiatus at a private party for close fans and friends at George's Majestic Lounge on Dickson Street in Fayetteville. The new lineup was well received and the band will play its reunion performance, dubbed The Wresurrection, on September 5, 2009.
