Ruthless Vision was born when two friends Brian Tomczak (drums) and Mark Sobot (guitar) joined forces to write heavy rock tracks. When keyboardist Jim Asta arrived on the scene, the band aimed to become a notable Chicago based industrial rock band. Simran would later join, adding vocals and lyrics. Finally, Maximillian, a musician well-versed in multiple instruments joined the band to play bass guitar.
What sets Ruthless Vision apart is their combination of heavy guitars, electronic undertones and sultry female vocals. Furthermore, each member is involved in the songwriting process, giving each song a unique flavor. Ruthless with their sound, one and only with their vision.
