Assaultica: Thrash metal demons
The Junior Spies: Sort of like Crass playing the Super Bowl
Super Terrific Action Team: North American Keg Metal
Assaultica: Thrash metal demons
The KMX Band: Sort of like DMX the rapper except a metal band.
The KMX Band: I've noticed that sometimes, when people write really long paragraphs in the 'Band details' section, it makes the band seem more important, because someone is writing a lot about them. The KMX Band is one such band. These fellows should certainly seem important. Why should they seem important? You'll just have to watch.
Assaultica: Possibly the second most ridiculous metal outfit in Philly (and only the second most because the person writing this is in one of the other bands listed here), Assaultica know how to shatter your ear drums in style.
Big Stall: Lock up your wives. Lock up your daughters. Lock up your parents. Lock up your aunts. Lock up your uncles. Lock up your evil twins. Lock up the creepy old uncles that your family doesn't talk to anymore. Lock up the non-evil twin that you already locked up in your cellar. And make them all listen to Big Stall.
Godless A.D.: While they are the only band on this bill that does NOT describe themselves as 'Comedy Metal,' you should still take them seriously. And even though this is their first gig, these metal veterans are more seasoned than a box of croutons.
Vektor: onceived in December of 2002 by front man/guitarist David DiSanto, Vektor quickly gained popularity amongst the Phoenix metal contingent for their unique mix of technical, speed thrash and progressive influences. Vektor created a wave of interest with their self released demo Demolition (2006) and their two track demo Hunger for Violence (2007). After four years of local and regional performances as the opening act for such national acts as Testament, Hirax, Iced Earth and Municipal Waste, Vektor hit the road for their first national tour alongside label mates Exmortus in support of Black Future in December 2009 through January 2010. They also toured the US in Juneâ€“August 2010 on their own as well as a west coast tour in February of 2012. Their debut full length album, Black Future, was released on November 17, 2009 on NY's Heavy Artillery Records. The band released their most recent album, Outer Isolation, on November 22, 2011 on the Heavy Artillery label.
RUMPLESTILTSKIN GRINDER: Formed in 2002, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER had several underground releases, including a split 7-inch and a live album, before signing with Relapse. Their studio debut, Buried In the Front Yard, was released October 2005. Blabbermouth called the record, â€œa dynamic thrash album with roots in crossover, a musically talented cast, and loads of tongue-in-cheek cleverness.â€ The band would keep busy with additional split recordings, Speed N Spikes Vol. II (2008) and Urine Trouble/ Nothing Defeats the Skull (2008) before getting back in to the studio for their second full length, Living for Death; Destroying the Rest also released by Relapse January 2009. The band supported Absu for a 22-date US/Canadian tour April 2009, a tour with Deceased in 2010, and have been performing regionally since.rnrnRUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER currently features bassist/vocalist Shawn Riley, guitarist Matt Moore, guitarist Ryan Moll, and drummer Patrick Battaglia
