Killing Tyranny

You gotta stay true to your roots. I'm layin' it down live in Southern California this summer 2014.
"Songs that are based in today's world" as scary as it is. NO FEAR! Telling it as we see it!

Killing Tyranny plans to hit Southern California like a heavy metal tsunami with a nonstop attack on your cognitive and auditory senses! With a heart stopping barrage of metal to infuse into your systems! Ripping the flesh from your face with skull splitting pin point accuracy! See us it will be well worth your time!

After leaving my hometown of Detroit to chase the dream. I arrived in Covina California in 2000. Hooking up with former members of The Wicked and other well known LA musicians I formed Outraged. After making two CD's playing until 2005. I was approached by former members of Sanctuary to form Ironworks. Ironworks enjoyed a brief stent in the sunshine playing good venues in San Diego until 2010. After a four year hiatus I have chosen to put this project together.....Killing Tyranny is born. Excited we are in studio and plan to have the CD Spewing Treason done by August????


Vuture is a group that defies any metal sub genre, they are simply Metal. Formed in 2016, Vuture worked for two years to create their sound before unleashing it to the world in 2018. Since then they have been devastating shows and furthering their music. Vuture will shock you with their ability to balance pummeling heaviness and hum worthy catchiness all while playing with blistering precision. Comprised of an eclectic group of students, engineers, former and active military, and foreign nationals the music of Vuture is as diverse as its members, and they are constantly combining their different influences into their sound which is uniquely theirs. Check out Vuture and you will not be disappointed…
