Past Tense are a five piece Metal Band based in Lansing Michigan.
Most people describe our music as Thrash / Power metal or Traditional Metal. That being said we don’t try to make our music fit any particular style or genre. We simply play what we like. We leave it other people to sort out what genre we “fit” into if any.

We have recorded and released out first original single, Let the Sin Begin, and are hard at work on our first full length release hopefully due by the end of 2017.
Led by Strobel’s blistering vocal delivery, Past Tense goes right for the nether regions with the thundering rhythm section of Matt Noe (drums) and Banzai Ryan (BASS!). Rounding out the aural assault are Tony Garza and Rich Bates on guitar, whose melodic interplay evoke comparisons to powerhouse guitar duos like Tipton/Downing and Mustaine/Friedman.

A former thrash / power metal tribute band, Past Tense began forging a new path for themselves with the addition of veteran vocalist Shannon Strobel. Gone were covers by their metal heroes, replaced by original songs steeped in classic metal tradition with a modern edge.

After only a few years, Past Tense has made a big impression on Lansing’s metal scene.
