Averted is a UK Metalcore/Prog Metal formed in Southampton by Jamie and Merlin in April 2018, it started as a side project for them to explore the techy side of metalcore. They co-wrote a few songs before they started looking for other members and were joined by Logan and Syhem in 2019, and Alex in 2022.
In June 2019 they started writing their first EP "Silenced", as all members of the band live in different cities the whole process was done remotely in their respective home studios and the 6 songs were completed in a few months.
In October 2019 they began to record their debut EP with producer Jack Stephens (Bloodshot Dawn, Mask of Judas) which was shortly followed by shooting a video with Sebastian Taguiang. The EP was then self-released by the band in May 2020.
