September of 2005 to be exact. Three people in a middle school guitar class, Albert, Johnathan and Ivan, met and realized their music was similar if not exactly the same. After months of jamming and playing at the school, these guys decided they had something good going. With their early influences like Metallica , Slayer and Iron Maiden and everything that they had learned, they decided to put together a band. Ivan had wanted to play bass before guitar, Johnathan was getting better at guitar, and Albert loved singing his lungs out. So the basis of Armory was formed.Read More...
Freshman year in high school. They realized that they needed a drummer. Johnathan decides to teach his cousin Art how to play the drums so that they could bring him into the band. During ninth grade they had the misfortune of running into one of the most hated people on the face of the earth, Manny. They wanted to be a five-piece and he was into "metal" and was in chorus. So why not bring him in? And they did. Big Mistake. they tolerated months of pure obnoxious, self-centered attitude of a singer who seemed to only make them look worse by the day. So they ditched him. The summer of 2007, Armory records a few rough tracks. One or two originals that have been passed away. But it was a start. they went through a time where practice was very limited due to personal issues.
2008 comes along and Albert decides to part ways with Armory. He still remains a friend to the band, just not a player. So a search began for a new guitar player and possibly singer. We ask a friend of ours, Jay, to come jam with us to see how it sounded. It sounded good and he became the other guitarist and eventually the singer as well. Practicing space was becoming more available to them and ideas were just popping out of nowhere. Thanks to their friend Allen, they were able to get a few more rough tracks up. Enough to get other band's attention and to get invited to gigs.in late 2009 Ivan parts way with Armory due to personal issues, the search went on for a new bassist. With the help of a friend adrian he would play bass for them while they searched for one. Adrian enjoyed playing with Armory so he stood in the band for good
