Country: USA

Description & history: Probably the best of the Bay Area thrash bands of the 80's. Many (myself included) feel that their first three albums were great and their last two were somewhat samey and uninspired. For me, Fabulous Disaster was their best, a thrash classic. Kirk Hammett (of Metallica, of course) was once a member and his work can be found on early demos. Also, Steve Souza was originally the vocalist for Legacy, who are better known now as Testament.Traveler

Fight

Discography:
Title Year Genre
War of Words 1993 LP
Mutations 1994 LP
Small Deadly Space 1995 LP

Band Members:
Name Instrument Years Played also in
Rob Halford Vocals 1993 - today Judas Priest
Scott Travis Drums 199? - today
Mark Chaussee Lead and rhythm guitar 199? - today
Jay Jay Bass 199? - today
Brian Tilse Lead and rhythm guitar, piano 199? - today

Description & history: Rob Halford (of Judas Priest fame) formed this to get his message out. His message: aggression, ferocious industrial rhythms, dark, discordant melodies and a heart of METAL fromed by years of Judas Priest. This is nothing like Judas priest. But it's modern and provocative like Priest was back when. Traveler
