Vex Red were a band from Aldershot, Hampshire, UK who played hard rock with samples. After several years playing within the Aldershot, music scene, Vex Red emerged as a full band following the addition of vocalist and guitarist Terry Abbott in 1999. Lead by Abbott, Keith Lambert (bass, programming), Ant Forbes (guitar, keyboards), Nick Goulding (guitar, bass), and Ben Calvert (drums) started expanding their true potential. A year later, the band conquered its way into the music world by way of a demo tape competition promoted by Kerrang! magazine and producer Ross Robinson, credited to the works of bands like At the Drive-In, Slipknot, and Korn. It was in the midst of 2000 that Can't Smile, Vex Red's demo tape, emerged as the chosen one, therefore propelling the British squad's career to a wider audience, being signed to Ross Robinson's I Am label. In late 2002 the band were dropped from their record label and parted ways. Terry Abbott has since formed a new band, Septembre, as well as performed as Fears, while some of the remaining members went on to form Scenes. Ben Calvert is now the drummer with Killing Joke.
