It’s the beginning of a new year and a new feature for the site. We would like to showcase a different heavy metal band as often as possible that fans might not be aware of that we believe you might like.
We would like to spotlight great bands that might not be as in the public eye as say, bands like Metallica or Judas Priest. Bands deserving of recognition that might need some help. Young bands, veteran bands, and all bands in between. It doesn’t matter the subgenre, whether it’s traditional metal, death, thrash, doom, black, symphonic, power, or whatever type. If we deem a band is worthy of you guys checking them out, they’re in. And we welcome your suggestions too. If you know of bands that would fit the bill, let us know.
For the inaugural Featured Band – January 2nd, 2021 we have MESSIAH!
Messiah is a Swiss death-thrash band originally formed in 1984. The band ran for a decade but split up in 1994. They reunited for a single show in 2003, but nothing else became of it. Finally, in 2017 the group reunited again and began playing select shows, thereafter they began working on a new EP, which was released in 2020, then a brand-new full-length, Fracmont, which was released in September 2020. To date, Messiah has released three EP’s and six full-length albums.
Messiah packs a powerful punch with their devastatingly brutal blend of death and thrash metal. Their most recent album, Fracmont is such a great album that will literally melt your face off.
