FROM LAMBS TO LIONS – Hailing from the hybrid rural/suburban landscapes of upstate NY, From Lambs To Lions bring a refreshing sound to the metal scene both home and away. Fast forward through many lineup changes and continued hype crescendo to 2015 where the band, at long last, found a solid group of guys. Hopping on board were bassist and younger brother to Ryan, Colin McManus and ex-I Am Brave guitarists Josh Thornton and Kamilio Oliveras. The close friendship between members has created a family type atmosphere forged from life experience, and industry know-how.

The collective eagerness to spread that message is what drives them to succeed and brave the so called storm.
