Sadistic Ritual, w/
Nemesis is a 3 piece Thrash band, hailing from Charlotte, NC. formed in 2008, Nemesis brings you fast, raw, and loud, relentless Thrash Metal! They started out under the name Ravage back in early 2008, then eventually changed their name to “Nemesis”, and kept it since then. Throughout the years, Nemesis has gone through a few different bassists and played many shows within North Carolina and Virginia. Now they have a strong line up and hope to keep it that way. Thrash after death!
The killer street thrash band, known as “Reign”, was formed in 2013 in Chicago IL. Fusing death metal rhythms, progressive song layering, old school thrash riffs, and a punk attitude, Reign is a sonic force to be reckoned with.
Throughout 2013 they built an underground following, gained a reputation for high energy shows and toured the Midwest (without any recorded material!). In 2014 REIGN released a single, “New World Order”(DEMO). In early 2015 Reign released their first self-produced EP “WMD” and began a small scale national tour, playing dates on the West Coast and Midwest.
Savagery formed in early 2011. Our influences include lots of 80’s Thrash and Hardcore. We exploded on the Chicago metal scene with our first demo release entitled “Bullet Belt Invasion”. A six song punk thrash hybrid that first gave us recognition in our city. The following year we released “Strictly confidential”.With this release we cemented our place in the Chicago metal scene. This three song demo showcased our new skills in riff making and was far more technical and complex than our first demo. In late 2012 our lead singer and guitarist was diagnosed with a deadly cancer. The band took some time off while our singer went through treatments and recovered. In mid 2013 we came back stronger than ever with “Hard Merchandise”. The EP includes some of our best known songs such as “Hard merchandise” and “Helpless”. 2015 marked a change in our writing style with the release of “Out of Line”. A four song EP that tapped into more of our hardcore influences. The songs were also written in E flat tuning than our usual E standard tuning. We are currently working on a split with another local band named Smash Potater. The split will include three songs from each band and will be released on November 25, 2016. Our plans for next year include working on our first full length album. Which will be a concept album on our mascot “The Amazonian Woman”. We also hope to play out of state as much as possible to spread our brand of savage thrash to the masses. Some of the big metal acts we’ve opened for include Destruction, D.R.I, Onslaught, Artillery, Heathen, Municipal waste, Warbringer, Bonded by Blood, Striker, Spellcaster, and Exmortus.
