Defiance

There are 2 bands with the name Defiance: (1) Defiance is a thrash metal band from Oakland, California. While virtually unknown to mainstream metal and rock circles, Defiance is known as one of the classic second-tier thrash bands to come from the Bay Area thrash metal scene. They played a decidedly technical style of thrash originally evoking bands like Testament, though they would later move on to playing in their own unique, more progressive thrash style. They reformed in 2005 and have since release an album entitled The Prophecy in late 2009.

3 Inches of Blood

3 Inches of Blood was formed in 2000 in Vancouver, Canada. Initially playing straight, eighties' style heavy metal in the vein of bands such as Running Wild and Judas Priest, before the addition of heavy vocalist Cam Pipes and the recording of their debut album Battlecry Under a Winter Sun in 2002 on the Teenage Rampage label.

Spiral Tower

The band was formed in 1997. Their name comes from the Psychotic Waltz song off their first album (1990 - A Social Grace). The founding members come from Tragedy Divine, a progressive/power metal band which split up due to musical differences (other former members play in Sacred Steel, a more traditional power/heavy metal band).
Spiral Tower plays Germanic power/speed metal with progressive influences (which are normal as they are influenced by Psychotic Waltz, though they are far less progressive).
