Beyond Forgiveness is a Symphonic Metal band from Colorado Springs, US. Reformed in 2014, the group is on a focused quest to embody the full meaning of the label “symphonic”, through the composition of lush classical orchestras, choirs, and operatic vocals colliding with heavy and aggressive metal.
After a period of composing original music and working through the process of finding the right lineup, the band found traction in 2016 with the current lineup including founding members Greg Witwer and Richard Marcus on guitars and heavy vocals, Sean Rogers on Drums, and Talia Hoit as lead vocalist and orchestral composer.
The band released its debut EP, The Ferryman’s Shore, in February 2016. Boosted by favorable reviews from reputable critics and airplay on internet radio stations, Beyond Forgiveness produced an intro video for Youtube and an official music video for the song, Dust to Dust. Right on the heels of the EP, the band performed a short tour in Europe as well as in the Colorado area an the band’s full length album, The Great Wall followed, with a release in the fall of 2017 and another music video for the song, Sanctuary.
In the spring of 2018, the band added bassist Jim Lasselle to the lineup, and Beyond Forgiveness is currently composing their second full-length album for an expected worldwide release in the spring of 2019 via Sliptrick Records.
