Mary and the Black Lamb are a Gothic rock band from Ontario Canada. Lead singer Lindz Riot and guitarist Nixon Cutz formed the band in the autumn of 2007, naming it because they felt like they didn't fit in well with old bands, friends, and family, like BlackSheep. After gaining the members Jordan Caverly to play bass, Matt Kelly on keys, and the crazy Scott Brindley to play drums the band went on to make their debut album "As The City Sleeps". Since then they have gone on to make an acoustic EP and have a second album on the way.
