TRAUMA was formed in 1980, having in their original line-up the iconic Cliff Burton on bass guitar, before joining Metallica in 1982. The band quickly became well known throughout California, playing at all the legendary venues, and their first ever recorded track “Such a Shame” was included on Metal Blade Records, Metal Massacre II album in 1982. Their “Scratch and Scream” (1984) album has long been considered a classic Heavy Metal collector’s item. Shrapnel Records re-mastered and re-released the album in October 2013, and TRAUMA reformed with a new line-up for the album re-release. In July 2014 TRAUMA played at the Headbangers Open Air Festival, furthermore the same year TRAUMA signed a world-wide contract with Pure Steel Records. Their latest effort “Rapture and Wrath” was released on February 27, 2015. The band released a video of one of the new songs, “When I Die”, in February 2015. TRAUMA is currently writing material for a new album and is in the process of securing live touring dates. Check out “When I Die” here:
CHEMICAL BURN craft pulverizing metal, packed with blistering riffs and hammering groove. This crushing brew of heaviness is captured with the Bay Area thrashers latest album “Raining Anvils”, released on August 7, 2015 via MegaSonic. Behind the band’s annihilating approach to metal is a message of finding strength amidst life’s obstacles. After solidifying the newest and strongest line up to date, the fellas in CHEMICAL BURN are pushing for more shows on the road to spread the word of “Raining Anvils” to the Metal masses and new markets on a global level.
