Trash Society

Trash Society was formed in 2002 when 4 fucked up guys met each other to make some noise. After one year of wasting time they decided to kick out the drummer and do some serious music. Another year and countless shows passed by until the band finally found their individual sound - a mixture of Hardcore and Streetpunk. In 2005 the first demo was recorded and earned amazing feedback. Hopefully the next years will be as successful as the last ones...

Insanity

Formed in 1985, Bay Area band Insanity were instrumental in metal's evolution from thrash to death metal. Drummer Bud Mills was a big reason why, as his so-called "1-1" beat presaged the modern blastbeat. The band's sound more than lived up to its name. Not only did it crank thrash up to frenzied warp speeds, it also displayed chops well ahead of its time. Insanity were legendary worldwide in the '80s metal tape trading circuit, with members of Carcass and Napalm Death citing them as an influence.
