ARTILLERY was forged in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Successfully fusing abrasive brutality, precision and strong melodies, with the bracing guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights, ARTILLERY stands among Europe’s oldest and most important exponents of thrash metal.
