Metavari is the moniker of American composer and electronic musician, Nathaniel David Utesch. Metavari's dark, cinematic records make extensive use of nostalgic electronics and sampling; a collage of synth-laden melodies, menacing instrumentation and foley sounds. 
 The project was conceived as a full band (2008-2012), but transitioned to electronic music at the release of

Moonless (2015) with Nathaniel at the helm. Metavari is signed to Mind Over Matter Records (distro: Deathwish, Inc. US/EU); and One Way Static Records (distro: Light in the Attic worldwide). An evolving cast of contributing members weave in and out of participation and live performances as life allows, including: Ty Brinneman (bass guitar), Andrew McComas (drums, electric guitar), Kyle Steury (guitar, synths), and most recently Colin Boyd (percussion). Since 2008, Metavari has toured widely in the US; sharing the stage with notable acts such as This Will Destroy You, Maserati, Tortoise, Digitalism, El Ten Eleven, Troller (feat. Adam Jones of S U R V I V E), Alex Cameron, Mexican Institute Of Sound, Titus Andronicus, and Small Black.
