From Toronto On, Canada. Derryl Vi started playing guitar since 1996 and hasn’t looked back after hearing his first early Metallica and Iron Maiden albums.
In 2014 VI was formed with a focus of heavy riffing with melodic tranquility. After 2 EP’s, their debut album “The Art of Violence” was released in mid 2017 with exposure in Europe and South America. Prior to VI, Derryl has had the honour to open for bands such as Devildriver’s “Thrash and Burn Tour”, Revocation in 2009 and was one of 7 guitarists to be featured on Shredders of Metal.
The band is currently set to release their second album “Chaos Immortal” in early 2019.
It’s a privilege to join Solar Guitars and be among with musical heroes such as At The Gates and The Haunted. I can’t wait to release the next album using these tools of sonic destruction.
