Formed in 1996 in Virginia, USA, ORDAINED quickly established a strong and loyal following by playing all original Metal and a theatrical stage show. Being banned from performing in their home state of Virginia for 2 years forced ORDAINED to take their show on the road to other states. Riots, fights, arrests, broken bones, hotel room raids and mayhem ensued with ORDAINED packing clubs up and down the East Coast, USA. ORDAINED returned to Virginia with their balls to the wall sound and show and started releasing a steady stream of Metal. ORDAINED was voted by the fans Number One Metal Band in Virginia in 2004 and 2005. ORDAINED has (so far) 7 albums, numerous compilation appearances, a DVD/Home Video, radio airplay on 6 of the 7 continents, interviews in magazines from dozens of countries, movie appearances, awards and plenty of scars. ORDAINED is the Undisputed Champion Of Heavy Metal.
