Bonded By Blood
At the turn of the 21st century, the Crong had fulfilled their undercover quest for global domination. The masses of the people had been deceived. The complete structure of the world's governments had been nothing more than a coldly calculated scheme for complete and total world domination, aimed solely at one purpose - human genetic encryption. They were the "men" behind the curtains, the ruling elite pulling the strings, and a desperate, dying race. For millennia, the Crong had been banished, deprived, and exiled to earth. No longer able to breed as a cybernetic species, they found that the key to their survival laid hidden deep within the human genetic code. In order to obtain this, they needed to divert the people's attentions elsewhere.
The world's population reduction program had begun. First, there was the calculated collapse of the world's economy. Then war, parasitic plague, and anarchy soon followed. Starvation and genocide spread like wildfires. The age of endless wars had begun. One by one, the world powers disappeared from the face of the planet. Entire nations and continents were wiped out by bombs. The systematic separation and segregation of humans soon followed. Specimens were gathered, placed, and imprisoned in designated sectors for genetic experiments. Most of the remaining humans, no longer able to resist, willingly accepted and welcomed the segregation as "salvation". The Crong had placed out the bait and we took it. An end to war, famine, and pain; a One World Government! Those who resisted faced imprisonment, persecution, and ultimately death as they were labeled enemies to humanity.
Now, here we are, approximately six-hundred years after the bomb, hidden safely in an underground vault. No one knows much about the future on the surface above, beyond what we have already stated, but we are soon to find out. We form part of a skilled tactical group of warriors whose mission is nearly, if not, impossible - to completely dismantle the Crong, overthrow their intergalactic regime over our planet and take back what's rightfully ours! In times of great adversity, the courage of few will prosper over those who conspire against them. Will you survive against those who are Exiled to Earth?
Fueled by Fire
After nearly a dozen personnel rotations, thrash metal outfit "Fueled By Fire" have fine-tuned their sound into an explosive act in the vein of '80s speed demons Slayer, Overkill , Testament and more . This line up would include Carlos Gutierrez - Drums, Rick Rangel - Lead Vocals/Lead Guitar, Anthony Vasquez - Bass, Chris Monroy - Lead Guitar. The group started their humble beginnings in 2002, They immediately recorded their first demo and entitled "Life…Death…and FBF" in April 2004. Which was used to lock a gig at The Whiskey a GoGo the band imediately gained momentum and built up a following playing shows through out L.A. and surrounding areas, and playing along side Metal Heavy weights such as Exodus,Possessed, Exumer, Municipal Waste, Heathen, Hallows Eve, Hirax, Toxic Holocuast, Agent Steel and many more... As their fan base continued to grow, the demand for them to release more material also grew, In May 2006 they recorded their first full length album consisting of nine tracks entitled “Spread The Fire” which was a self financed effort, it was released in September 2006 the album gained world wide attention and also the attention of none other than Brian Slagel founder of Metal Blade Records, who contacted the band only one month after their album was released. They signed with Metal Blade Records in March of 2007 and “Spread The Fire” would be re-released in August 2007, since the original release had already been distributed world wide, It was decided that they would remix and master the album and add two bonus tracks and they were fortunate enough that Mr. Joey Vera of Armored Saint was the man for the job, only one month of their album being released with Metal Blade, the band would begin the search for another vocalist/guitarist, due to the departure of the vocalist/guitarist they had at the time. Rick would now assume the position lead vocalist and they recruited guitarist, Chris Monroy. They soon began to tour with this current lineup, in December 2007 headlining a West Coast tour with bay area speed metaler’s Scarecrow as the supporting act, in addition to playing some gig’s in Mexico, they were soon invited to perform at the”Keep It True” festival in Germany that was followed by a European tour as the headliner in April 2008 and in July 2008 on a full U.S.tour as direct support to M.O.D. The future is bright for “Fueled By Fire” as they continue to build on their fan base and on going touring plans...
