Category VI formed in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in early 2010. The band brings something new to the local Newfoundland metal scene as we are the only band from the city that plays melodic metal and the only active female-fronted melodic metal band in the city! Category VI has performed live in St. John’s several times with other local hard rock and metal bands as well as with touring bands. In 2011 the band released a three song demo entitled VINLAND. FIREBORN is the debut full length from Category VI and features over 50mins of melodic metal, traditional metal, and even a few hints of thrash.
