Caducus is a four piece melodic metal band based out of Louisville, KY. Compared to bands like In This Moment, Lacuna Coil and Flyleaf, they are grabbing the Louisville music scene by the throat. Their debut EP, String Me Up, is gaining buzz with radio play and press across the globe. Their first single and title track, String Me Up, hit the airwaves in November and made instant waves. In fact, WIRR 103.5 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada named Caducus in their top 30 female fronted metal bands worldwide, and also their May 2015 band of the month.


    Singer and primary songwriter Michala Bouska is no stranger to the music scene, and she definitely leaves a lasting impression on every person that crosses her path. Along with guitarist Chuck Stoess Jr, drummer Chuck Hedrick and bassist Chris Dodd, their music can be described as eerie, beatiful and powerful. Caducus is working hard to be heard by everyone, everywhere. Their live show can only be summed up by their lyrics, "Once we begin, there's no safeword."


"Hands down, the best melodic metal to come out of the midwest in years"

- Richie Ray, Producer

"...such a strong arrangement of music, it pulls you in like nothing ever felt before."

- Jason Thompson, The Vacant
