Brave biography
BRAVE can trace their history back to 1997, when Scott Loose (guitars) and Trevor Schrotz (drums) decided to form a band, originally called ARISE FROM THORNS. Scott's sister, Michelle Loose (vocals, keyboards), joined the project soon after the formation and the trio started writing and recording music which released a self-titled album in 1998.

Also in 1998, the group expanded, adding Chris Welborn (bass, formerly of DIVISION) and Tom Philips (guitar, formerly of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT).

"Before an Audience of Stars", the band's sophomore album, was released in 1999 - and later reissued in 2001.

In the meantime the members felt a name change was called for since the musical style evolved from the avant-garde style that they had been exploring, towards a more distinct progressive metal sound. So, in March of 2000, the band changed their name to BRAVE.

A year later, BRAVE released their first EP "Waist Deep in Dark Waters" in March 2001.

In February 2002, the 5-piece entered the studio and recorded their full length album "Searching for the Sun" which was released in July. Just after this release, Suvo Sur (violin) joined the band, replacing guitarist Tom Philips. The same year they entered Jaxx's Battle of the Bands and achieved 2nd place among 250 contestants in a 6 month long competition.

In 2003, Chris Welborn left the group and was replaced by MODULUS bass player Ben Kelly (formerly of FORTY DAYS LONGING).

Early in 2004, the first creation from this revamped line-up was released, an EP named "Passages".

BRAVE continues being active on the live circuit as well, and they now find themselves booked as opening act for several renowned acts playing in the Washington DC area on a regular basis.

In 2007, Matt Kozar (guitar, formerly of FORTY DAYS LONGING, BETRAY MY TRUST, and TIME OF THE WOLF) joined the band as the second guitarist bringing the group to six. In May 2008 Brave released their first studio album in four years, "Monuments."

WHY IS THIS BAND LISTED AT PROGARCHIVES:
BRAVE has released 4 productions of progressive metal, mixing raw and heavy passages with calmer melodic moments. The vocals of singer Michelle Loose ties it all together, in a manner which has seen comparisons made to an act like THE GATHERING; and Michelle herself compared to Annie Haslam. This band has been a frequent suggestion for inclusion in the archives, and has been approved by the Progressive Metal te...

Brave Progressive Metal

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Excellent compilation of tunes from this little known band from the USA. Their mix of heavy metal riffs, melodic rock and prog rock is quite appealing and charming. Their music is too varied to pigeonhole it but the constant factors are their excellent musicanship, the tasteful arrangements and the strong songwriting. And above it all, Michelle LooseŽs vocals. She has a great voice and a strong interpretation of the songs. I wish more bands would be as careful about their singers as this one.

I guess the CD has too many variations to mention some highlight. I heard it for the first time from beginning to end without any feel of skipping a single track. None are bad, even if some are better than others dependingo n the listenerŽs tastes. Production is top notch and the band playing is just flawless. IŽll keep an eye on this band. Very promising. It took me quite a long time to get the CD, but it was well worth the wait.

Conclusion: a nice surprise! If you like melodic rock with some heavy guitars to spice it up, a brilliant female singer and an almost perfect delivering from all involved, this is for you. Although there is not too many explicit progressive moments on the record, other than some keyboards and violin lines here and there, I will rate it four stars for its sheer quality.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
