Extinction A.D., comprised of front-man Rick Jimenez and ex-This Is Hell bandmates Pieter van den Berg and Mike Sciulara, as well as Long Island native, Ian Cimaglia, deliver a fresh, energetic thrash attack, showing true love for early greats; old Testament, Slayer and Metallica, while dazzling with 2016 power and precision.
The band formed in 2013 and has been releasing music and touring steadily since, as seen with Unearth, Municipal Waste, Havok, Testament, Exodus, Shadows Fall, From Autumn To Ashes, Toxic Holocaust, Kvelertak, Nuclear Assault, Venom, D.R.I., The Red Chord, Bane, Act Of Defiance, Cro-Mags, Voivod, Vision of Disorder and many more.
Their full length debut Faithkiller was recorded and mixed by Brett Romnes (I Am the Avalanche, Anthony Raneri), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Noisem).
"A blend of early '90s Slayer and Sepultura filtered through a prism of Kill 'Em All. Check out Extinction A.D. if you're in the mood for groovy thrash that explodes with modern energy."
"A 21st-century powerhouse upgrade of Eighties thrash... The best aspects of early Metallica and Testament."
"Thrashterpiece... Who does Extinction A.D. think they are just hogging all the good riffs like this for themselves?"
"Extinction A.D. may very well write the best Slayer riffs that Jeff Hanneman never got around to writing but they're more than a simple re-thrash band... If thrash is a machine gun firing wildly in all directions, Extinction A.D. is a sniper with a laser sight."
"Rick Jimenez is the kind of guy that's in this for life... On Extinction A.D.'s debut full-length, Faithkiller, the sound has gotten thrashier but no less pummeling than Jimenez's past two decades of music creation, only now he's the one speaking out against injustice and corruption."
