Shredding Riffs + Powerful Vocals + Hypnotic Beats

Metal + Opera

About Oryad

Oryad is a melodic metal ensemble of classically trained musicians and rock veterans that deliver an intense marriage of metal and classical music. They weave the literary, gothic, and mythical imagery of various traditions into classical homages and pure electric shredding.

Soprano and pianist Moira Murphy brings her international operatic stage experience to lead their unique sound. Joining her is Matt Gotlin-Sheehan on drums, in addition to a cast of musicians that has included Luca Grieman, Natalie Rodriguez, Adam Sanders, and Kyle Wilde.
