Oakhaart are a Gloucestershire based metal band, incorporating progressive and technical elements into their unique sound. Formed in 2012 by Ollie and Max Medlow, the band released the hard hitting debut track technological Singularity. Shortly after they acquired bass and rhythm guitar players in Michael Perks and Rob Ives.
Roughly one year later they had completed a 3 track demo boasting theirdebut song, along with the tracks A Darkened Mind and Uproot. Max Medlow (lead guitars) had recorded all of the vocals on this demo, and the band had been searching for a full time frontman since the formation in 2012. Oakhaart started playing live in early 2014, and performed as a 4 piece. Shortly after Sam Shiers (formally of Tempestora) stepped in on lead vocals, and the line up was complete.
Oakhaart played their first gig with a full line up on the 8th of March 2014. Following that gig the band released a new song, The Motives of the Sane, which would complete their self released EP.
