With an array of musical influences spanning Flamenco, Thrash Metal, Progressive Rock, Classic Rock, Grunge, Blues, and Reggae, The Rift forged in 2010 with Ovais Malik, Aris Anagnos, & John Anagnos. Being brothers and long time friends has made the band have a chemistry that is rare and exceptional. Audiences are often shocked to see so much noise comes from only two to three players. With so many different influences the band has learned to blend these genres into their own unique style. After a successful 2018 with the release of Rock Narcotic landing the band on Vans Warped Tour and Next 2 Rock with 95.5 KLOS FM the band has been developing new material for an upcoming album. The group expect to have more material out in 2022.
