|In early 2010 the Metal world witnessed the birth of Reverence, co-founding by (guitarist/songwriter) Bryan Holland and (vocalist/songwriter) Todd Michael Hall, these two musicians hatched a plan to form a new power metal band.
Bryan, best known as the guitarist for NWOBHM legends Tokyo Blade. After several tours and releases, the latest being a Live CD and DVD, it was time to move on… "After Tokyo Blade ended I knew exactly what I wanted to do, the hardest part is finding the right pieces to the puzzle. Then I happened upon Todd's myspace page on New Years Eve and I knew right then and there I had found the perfect voice and writing partner."
Todd Michael Hall gained notoriety as a 4 octave metal vocalist through performances and recordings with the band Harlet in the late 80's and 90's but is best known as the vocalist for Jack Starr's Burning Starr, Todd appears on their latest cd, entitled Defiance and has graced many festivals and stages throughout Europe.
When the subject of the rhythm section came up Bryan knew just who he wanted. Enter, Frank Kruckel, who has been playing on the stage since the 90's with Overloaded, Mindcandy as well as Tokyo Blade . Bryan insisted, "I couldn't see myself doing another band without Frank in it.
the drummers seat, "I have been friends with Steve 'Doc. Killdrums' Wacholz for ages and always wanted to do something serious with him but the time was never right until now!" stated Bryan. Steve is one of the founding members of Savatage and Crimson Glory. Steve played on the band's first eight studio albums and numerous world tours.
Pete Rossi and Tony Rossi were the last peace's of the puzzle. Pete and Doc have know each other and jammed together for years.
