ATTACKER: The Lords of Thunder! .. Formed in the summer of 1983, ATTACKER is one of the first Heavy Metal bands to use the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien as a source of inspiration. An awakening that, eventually, would become the now classic "Battle At Helm's Deep" album. In recent times, the band has enjoyed one the best comebacks to ever occur in many years! The band has now come, quite literally, full circle and is back where they belong. Throughout their career, the band has amassed an incredible worldwide following, thanks to timeless Heavy Metal Classics such as the aforementioned "Battle At Helms Deep", "The Second Coming" and their comeback Classic "Soul Taker"! .
The Donner Party
Celebrating the raucous days of the 1980's crossover thrash metal scene, The Donner Party serves up a high speed, circle pit inciting facsimile for a whole new generation of metal maniacs. Formed in the toxic wasteland of Bloomfield, New Jersey in 2009, the band quickly gained a name in the thrash metal community with the release of their self-financed debut E.P. "The Spawning". It’s a seven song sonic blast of lightning fast riffs and head bashing breakdowns that was glowingly embraced by both critics and fans alike. With their lyrical content divided between socially aware, politically charged vituperation and gore-drenched, splatter movie inspired vignettes, The Donner Party has drawn comparison to such acts as Nuclear Assault, Sacred Reich, Sodom, & Municipal Waste. The band has successfully taken their live act all across the tri-state area, including a slot opening for crossover legends D.R.I. They've circulated thousands of copies of their E.P. to hungry metal fans all over the world; both in-person at live shows and through free downloads on popular social networking sites. Currently hard at work prepping new material, the boys are poised to unleash the next chapter of their legacy and inevitably focus their targets on global domination.
Inspired by the Sunday hardcore matinees of New York’s legendary club CBGB’s and the thrash metal nights at Brooklyn's L'Amours, the band Enrage was formed by childhood friends.
After a brief hiatus, Enrage was surprised to find a renewed interest in the band stateside as well as overseas.
The band regrouped with a new lineup and released "Nothing Stays Buried." Nothing Stays Buried climbed to the Top 25 of the CMJ Loud Rock charts upon its release and was played extensively on various college radio and foreign radio.
This new exposure led Enrage to recently tour Belgium and France. Enrage has also been a supporting act and headliner along the east coast from New York City to Florida.
ENRAGE just completed their European Tour ending the tour by playing the Ieperfest in Belgium. The second EP - Gateways Vol. II (the follow up to Gateways Vol. I) is available now at all online media outlets). Vol. II was mastered by Brad Blackwood.
Gateways Vol. III should be released in September 2017 with a full length to follow!!!
