Squirrelly Arts

Formed in 2008 and hailing from the outskirts of Northern San Diego. Front man, Matt Smith's (Nihilist, Damcyan, Muffhues Studios) intricate, brutal guiater riffs compliments perfectly with Casey Trask's (Ratt Black, CAGE) melodic shredding solos and vice versa. Accompanied by Alex Pickards (CAGE) heavy, rapid bass and the insane thunderous, pounding drum rhythms of Adam West. Having proven their hard work and skill, playing shows with thrash metal legends: Death Angel, Exmortus, Warbringer, Vektor, and Brazil's Nervosa, making them San Diegos new thrash metal kings. Follow the rise of the Monarch as they Go Forth... and Slaughter! Reminding everyone that thrash is alive and thriving giving you reminiscent tastes of Slayer, Children of Bodom, and groove metal godfathers Pantera.
