Shredding Riffs + Powerful Vocals + Hypnotic Beats

Metal + Opera

About Oryad

Oryad is a gothic, melodic metal ensemble of four classically trained musicians from Denver 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 keyboardist Moira Murphy brings her international operatic stage experience to lead their unique sound. Joining her is Luca Grieman on guitars, multi-instrumentalist Adam Sanders on bass, and Matt Gotlin-Sheehan (of Hydraform) on drums.
