The Metroschifter began in 1994 as a solo project for Louisville designer Scott Ritcher. Backed by members of Endpoint and Falling Forward, the Metroschifter would produce a gentle blend of melodic indie rock and complex hardcore.
This sound was first captured on their 1994 debut album, Capsule. With the help of Doghouse Records, Ritcher and company would release three additional albums as well as a number of single and splits with various labels. Amidst the hefty discography of the Metroschifter and his 1999 solo record, Ritcher would also run for mayor of Louisville as a Reform Party candidate in the 1998 election. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi
