18 years and over
Among the youngest bands ever to storm the metal genre, Death Angel has come to be known as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the thriving Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene in the early 1980s, an era when one could catch Cliff Burton (Metallica) at the front of the stage at Ruthie’s Inn banging his head to Death Angel’s inventive style, and speedy, complex arrangements.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD (Roadrunner Records)
There's a reason fans have come to their shows wearing Viking helmets and brandishing both real and plastic swords. Born out of a love for pure metal, weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, 3 Inches of Blood have been slaying the infidel and defending the faith for nearly eight years.
BATTLECROSS (Metal Blade records)
"...a mix of Black Dahlia Murder-esque savagery and Testament-live precision." Revolver Magazine "Tightness, conciseness and stellar riffery" -Metal Sucks
REVOCATION combines the energy of old-school thrash metal and the twisted musicianship of death metal. In May 2008, Revocation self-released their debut full-length CD 'Empire of the Obscene.' It highlights each band member’s individual talents and showcases their ability to write memorable songs, while still maintaining complexity and aggression.
DIAMOND PLATE formed in 2004 in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. DIAMOND PLATE unknowingly arrived at the right time, just as thrash-metal was beginning to make a huge comeback worldwide. Due to the ferocity of their music, coupled with a revived hunger for thrash, DIAMOND PLATE quickly established themselves as one of the top forces in the emerging U.S. thrash metal scene.
