The driving concept behind Vesuvius (often stylized VSUVS) is not thus of simply hard-working, driven musicians who hunger to perfect and share their craft. Vesuvius is not definitive of a song, Vesuvius is not abbreviated to the talents of four individuals, no; Vesuvius is a collective of art, evidence, and materials whose composite is that a tale of woe, resolve, and overcome, tailored to any listener willing to drown in an ocean of ever-encompassing detail and emotion.
The convocation of the counterparts composing the performance element was not overnight; said lineup had seen many a crowd and shared many a stage before discovering the unique chemistry behind the guise we now share. Billy, Robin, Taylor, and Benjamin have all composed and performed both music and/or other art forms for multiple years under different identities; most notably, the four had shared the stage among two other bandmates under the name Of Burning Empires since the spring of 2012. When said act founded little progress within those years, the four grew hungry, longing for sustainability and hence, took on a new name and form.
Now reborn, long merciless days and long sleepless nights are devoted towards honing the sound and message Vesuvius has set out to achieve.
