There are more than one artist named Genotype: 1. Geneotype is a metal band from Hampshire, IL. Formed in December 2010 by Charlie Esposito (Altered/The Darksiders) and Shaun Combee (Altered/Loki/Left for Dead). Ideas were exchanged and a platform was created. Kadie Kirby (vocals) joined shortly after and because of her background in stage performances and her love for macabre horror films/ femme metal groups she fit quite well with the dark allegro pieces being created. Tony Florio (Axis/Zero Hour) joined the ranks there after and adds the needed "thump" and "growl".
