Steve DiGiorgio     Bass (Sadus) *
Dragonlord, sometimes written as DragonLord (occasionally confused with a Spanish power metal band Dragon Lord due to similarities in names), is a North American black metal band. Dragonlord was formed in 2001 as a side project by Eric Peterson and Steve DiGiorgio of Testament and Steve Smyth of Nevermore. It is a result of Eric Peterson's interest in darker music, and not being able to do that with Testament he formed Dragonlord. The band is notable for having a unique sound that combines elements of black metal (screeching vocals, keyboards) with some thrash guitar influences. Also the band is among the rare examples of symphonic black metal in United States (at least, with a big name for themselves). Lyrical themes vary, either about the rage of a dragon (hence the name), death, war, lost love, Satanic or otherwise 
anti-religious themes (most common in black metal), or a combination 
of a few.
DiGiorgio later left the group and was replaced by former Testament bassist Derek Ramirez. 
Lyle Livingston plays keyboards for the band, and Jon Allen is their 
drummer. They have released two CDs, Rapture in 2001 and 
Black Wings of Destiny in 2005.

Carnivore Metalgrafia

Petrus Steele (R.I.P. 2010) Vocals, Bass
Louie Beateaux     Drums
Keith Alexander (R.I.P. 2005) Guitars, Vocals *
Marc Piovanetti     Guitars **
Carnivore was an American crossover thrash metal band formed by Peter Steele (later of Type O Negative fame), and was formed out of the ruins of the Brooklyn hard rock group Fallout. They released two albums: "Carnivore" (1985) and "Retaliation" (1987). The band broke up not long thereafter, and Peter Steele formed Type O Negative. The first Type O Negative album, "Slow Deep and Hard" was partially composed from material originally written for Carnivore. Despite being disbanded for over 15 years, there have been several reunion shows that have taken place over the years. One of the shows was at Wacken Open Air 2006, where they had an 1,25 hour setlist.
Original Carnivore guitarist Keith Alexander died in a biking accident on July 11, 2005.
The first album is more traditionally metal-sounding, drawing inspiration from Black Sabbath and 1970s Judas Priest, while the second has significant hardcore-crossover influence. Both are fit neatly into the speed-thrash genre, however. The lyrical themes include nihilism, anti-religious sentiment, a mockery of racism, intolerance, and general human stupidity, a heap of cynicism, and explicit tongue-in-cheek depictions of gore and despair. For example, this line from "Ground Zero Brooklyn" sums up the band fairly well: "I shit my pants as I wait for the reaper!". Song titles like "Jesus Hitler", "Race War", and "God is Dead" are also representative.
Carnivore reunited in 2006. The last reunion was 1996 when original
Carnivore members Louie & Marc joined Pete for a short week-long tour
from NYC to Milwaukee.
Guitar tech John Watson played in Blood of Kings, and was later a guitar
tech for Type O Negative.
The sound can be described as New York thrash, with lots of punk
overtones contrasting with epic doom passages.

Terrorizer Metalgrafia

Oscar Garcia  Vocals *

David Vincent  Bass
Anthony "Wolf" Rezhawk  Vocals **
Katina Culture  Guitars
Tony Norman  Bass, Guitars
Born from the ashes of Majesty in 1987, they broke up in early 1988, so the debut LP was recorded posthumously in '89, because Shane Embury (Napalm Death) worshiped old Terrorizer demos so much that he brainwashed the Earache boss. Jesse once remarked in an interview that Oscar had already forgotten half the songs, so they recorded the album with only one guitar. Pete Sandoval was already working on Morbid Angel's Altars of Madness, so Oscar and Jesse went to Morris Sound to record in the same place; then David Vincent ended up filling in on bass because Garvey was in jail. The LP was recorded and mixed in 8 hours!
Terrorizer was one of the first bands that producer Scott Burns got to work with, where the sound on this album would later be known as the "death metal production". Because of his work, he later went on as being a well-known death metal producer.
Jesse and Pete reformed Terrorizer in 2005. Jesse died in Holland in August 2006 (shortly after the release of the combeack album) allegedly from diabetes worsened by his rumored alcoholism, thus ending the reunion of Terrorizer.
In 2009, the band had reformed once again, this time with David Vincent also returning and Resistant Culture guitarist Katina Culture as Jesse's replacement.

Heathen were formed in 1984 by guitarist Lee Altus and drummer Carl Sacco. Even without a bassist, this lineup played a single gig, on April 21st, 1985. Then, Jim Sanguinetti left to form Mordred and was replaced by Doug Pierce on guitars. Sam Kress, who was a better songwriter than vocalist, was kicked out in late 1985 and David Godfrey of Blind Illusion was asked to join. Bassist Eric Wong was added in early 1986, and the "new" Heathen's first gig was on February 6th.
They recorded the "Pray for Death" demo in April, 1986, and then Eric Wong was replaced by Mike "Yaz" Jastremski from Griffin in mid-1986. This lineup recorded the first album. Carl Sacco was replaced by Darren Minter on drums before the beginning of the US tour in 1988, sometime in January.
After the US tour, all Hell let loose, and David Godfrey left, to be replaced by none other than Paul Baloff (Exodus). They recorded a demo in October, 1988, and then Yaz left and the band broke up, before being reformed with Manny Bravo on bass and none other than David Wayne (Metal Church) on vocals. Wayne was in for only a few days before David Godfrey (now known as David White) returned. A demo was recorded in March 1989, and an album, "Fear of the Unknown", was planned for 1990 release. It was partly recorded, but then scrapped due to monetary problems. Most of the songs made it onto the 1991 Victims of Deception album, with the notable exception of "Nothing You Can See".
That album was recorded in 1991, with Blind Illusion bassist Marc Biedermann helping out but not being officially a member of the band. Randy Laire joined for the following tour. Randy was killed in a car accident in June, 1991, and Ira Black was quickly summoned to replace him for a planned tribute EP of cover songs, which was never released, as Doug Piercy left and Ira Black. After a brief interval with Jason Vie Brooks on bass and Thaen Rasmussen on guitar, Heathen broke up in 1992. (According to Dave White, this era of the band was "forgettable".)
Doug Piercy, Lee Altus and Darren Minter all moved to Germany. Doug began a career racing cars, while the other two joined the band Die Krupps.
Heathen reformed for one show, Thrash of the Titans, on August 11th, 2001, with the lineup of David White (no longer Godfrey), Lee Altus, Ira Black, Mike "Yaz" Jastremski, and Darren Minter. The reunion stuck, and the tribute EP was re-recorded and released as a full-length with several demos from the Victims of Deception sessions. The band has since decided to continue working on and releasing new material, as well as tour.
The David White/Godfrey story: David was born a White after his biological father, but used his stepfather's surname, Godfrey, in school for issues of convenience. Upon reaching adulthood, he began using the White name, but his bandmates convinced him to use Godfrey on the Breaking the Silence album so nobody thought Heathen had switched singers. On Victims of Deception he was listed as David Godfrey-White, and has since officially become David White in professional and personal life.
Terry Lauderdale filled in the vacancy left by Ira Black for Heathen as a favor on tour from 2005 to 2007.

RIP: January 31, 2002, stroke
Gary Holt Guitar
Rick Hunolt Guitar
Rob McKillop Bass
Tom Hunting Drums
Steve Souza (Zetro) Vocals **
Exodus was founded by Tom Hunting and Kirk Hammett (later departed to Metallica, having written only some material for the debut album). The band did not release any Hammett-era albums, just two demos (1982 and 1983).
Tom Hunting also did vocals in the very beginning. According to Carlton Melson the first line up was: Hunting, Melson, Hammett and Agnello.
Steve "Zetro" Souza had left the band after about six years with them (1986-1992) due to lack of commitment. Exodus continued playing shows without him until they broke up around 1994 due to behind the scenes issues and changes in musical tastes.
A late 90s comeback with Paul Baloff back in the fold proved to be short-lived, producing only the "Another Lesson in Violence" live album, before a more permanent reformation came about in 2001. After Baloff's tragic death in early 2002, Zetro returned to Exodus and performed on the comeback album, "Tempo of the Damned", before unexpectedly leaving again on the eve of a South American tour in September 2004. Matt Harvey and Steev Esquivel performed as guest vocalists until Rob Dukes was recruited as the new frontman.
Interestingly, Les Claypool of Blind Illusion and Primus, who was a schoolmate and friend of Kirk Hammett's, was asked to join the band as a bass player in 1980, but declined, citing a taste for free-form jazz at the time.

The album peaked at #82 on the Billboard 200.

The album was originally titled A Lesson in Violence,
but had its name changed when a suitable cover idea could
not be found. An advance cassette copy of the album (with
the original title) was widely distributed through the
tape-trading network upon the record's completion late in
the summer of 1984, creating an immense underground buzz
prior to the official release of the LP. The release was
delayed, however, due to problems with the artwork.

Megadeth (Essential Albums)

Dave Mustaine - Lead Guitars, Vocals, Piano
Chris Poland - Lead Guitars
David Ellefson - Bass, Backing Vocals
Gar Samuelson - Drums, Timpani
Megadeth was formed in late 1983 when Dave Mustaine (formerly of Metallica) threw a potted plant through the window of David Ellefson's apartment because Ellefson was practicing his bass too loud. When the band was formed Dijion Carruthers was their drummer and Greg Handevidt on guitars. They quickly replaced Carruthers with drummer Lee Rausch, recorded a demo and secured a few gigs in the San Francisco Bay area in February, 1984. Handevidt was fired for incompetence (he later formed Kublai Khan) They quickly found second guitarist Kerry King (Slayer), who played Megadeth's first three gigs: February 15th, 18th, and 19th, of 1984.
The band name was selected from a term referring to a million casualties, as a result of Nuclear Fallout. It was coined in 1953 by RAND military strategist Herman Kahn. The extra "a" was dropped by the band. The name Fallen Angel was considered, as it was the name of a short-lived Dave Mustaine/Matt Kisselstein (bass) project in 1983.
King left later that month when Mustaine wanted him to choose between Megadeth and Slayer. Then, Chris Poland was brought in, and more gigs were played, starting on April 15th, 1984. A demo was recorded with this lineup, and then Lee Rausch left (he would later that year show up in Dark Angel), and was replaced by Gar Samuelson. This lineup recorded the first two albums.
There were troubles with Chris Poland. He was replaced with Mike Albert for part of the 1985 tour, and was finally fired in 1987, for stealing Mustaine's guitars and other transgressions (read the lyrics to "Liar" for a somewhat biased but not entirely untrue account), and Gar Samuelson left as well (his parting wasn't entirely amicable either). Chuck Behler came in immediately, and several guitarists were tried out, including Jay Reynolds of Malice, who played a few gigs on the 1987 tour, before giving way to Jeff Young. This lineup recorded So Far, So Good... So What, but after a subsequent tour, both Young and Behler were fired.

Anthrax (Essential Albums)

Neil Turbin Vocals (1982-1984) *
Scott Ian Guitars
Dan Spitz Guitars
Dan Lilker Bass *
Charlie Benante Drums, Percussion
Joey Belladonna Vocals **
Frank Bello Bass **
Anthrax was formed in mid-1981 by guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Lilker. They found the name in a biology textbook and claimed it because it sounded sufficiently evil. Vocalist John Connelly joined, as did drummer Dave Weiss and a bassist named Kenny Kushner. Kenny was replaced very early on with Paul Kahn, who was found insufficient as well, so Danny Lilker took over on bass, and Greg Walls joined as second guitarist. Then Connelly and Weiss left, being replaced by Greg D'Angelo on drums, and after a series of vocalists (including Scott's brother Jason Rosenfeld), they found Neil Turbin.
This line-up gigged frequently locally, featuring original songs like "Satan's Wheels" (a song about drugs), "Hunting Dogs", and more, and also covers by Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kiss, and more. The lineup recorded a NWOBHM-sounding demo in July, 1982. Greg Walls left in the summer of 1983, and his replacement was Bob Berry for a few gigs.
Then, Dan Spitz (formerly of Overkill) joined the band, replacing Bob Berry. With Dan, second demo was recorded. In September, Charlie Benante replaced Greg D'Angelo on drums. This lineup recorded the Soldiers of Metal 7" single, produced by Ross the Boss Manowar (The B-side of this single has one of the old demos with Greg D'Angelo on it, the only "official" recording with Greg!).
This demo got them a recording deal with Megaforce records, for which they recorded their debut album, Fistful of Metal, in late 1983. It was released in January of 1984, and a US tour followed, during which tensions grew between Danny Lilker and Neil Turbin. Danny Lilker was let go, and he formed Nuclear Assault with John Connelly, before moving on to a variety of other projects (Brutal Truth, Hemlock, Holy Moses, and more).
Frank Bello (Charlie's nephew) joined on bass, and then finally Turbin was fired in July of 1984 very near the end of the tour. The last few dates featured Matt Fallon on vocals, but he was very temporary. In late 1984, the band appeared as a 4-piece, "The Diseased", with Scott on vocals. They performed a few punk covers, including "See Nothing, Hear Nothing, Say Nothing" by Discharge. A recording exists. Then, Joey Belladonna was found, and an EP, Armed and Dangerous, was recorded, with some old Neil Turbin stuff added to fill out the recording (two live tracks from early 1984, and the songs from the old 7"). Joey's debut was February 27th, 1985. Later in 1985, Scott and Danny Lilker appeared on the Stormtroopers of Death album "Speak English or Die". An Anthrax album, Spreading the Disease came soon, and US and European tours followed.

Metallica (Essential Albums)

James Hetfield Vocals, Guitars (rhythm)
Kirk Hammett Guitars (lead)
Cliff Burton Bass (R.I.P. 1986)
Lars Ulrich Drums
Metallica was formed by Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield in the fall of 1981. Ulrich (who originally went to the US to play tennis) had, during that summer, met Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records and had secured an appearance on an upcoming compilation called Metal Massacre but had no band. He quickly found Hetfield, who was playing in Leather Charm at the time, and one day in December of 1981, they recorded the rhythm tracks to a remake of a Leather Charm song, "Hit the Lights." Hetfield tracked all guitars and bass on this recording, except for one of the solos which was performed by guitarist Lloyd Grant in January 1982, and the song appeared on Metal Massacre in February.
Permanent guitarist Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) was brought in in February of 1982, and a bassist, Ron McGovney was found. Ron (who also designed the famous Metallica logo) was James's roommate, and James taught him to play bass, so that the band could play live. This line-up re-recorded "Hit the Lights" for the second pressing of Metal Massacre. The first live show was on March 14th, at Radio City Music Hall in Anaheim. James did only vocals, and Dave was the single guitarist. The band at this point had several rehearsal tapes floating about, but then in response to one of those being pressed to vinyl by Bongus Loadus Records, decided to record their first demo, with the Grant version of Hit the Lights and two covers. This demo was first given out at the March 27th, 1982 gig at the Whisky, when they opened for Saxon. A vocalist named Sammy Dijon, of the band Ruthless, was in for a few rehearsals but no actual gigs (so do not add him to the former members section!).
Two more studio demos were recorded in 1982, one in April and one in July. On April 23rd, 1982, guitarist "Damien Phillips" (real name: Brad Parker) played one gig, before quitting, because Dave wouldn't let him do duelling leads. James took over as second guitarist live from then on. Extensive live gigging occured, including one show at Lars's high school on May 25th at which the final attendance was zero. On May 28th, Jef Warner was on vocals, but this show seems to have been a glorified rehearsal. He sang only that one gig. Also, Tygers of Pan Tang vocalist Jesse Cox was considered, but he did not accept.
A live demo was recorded on November 29th, 1982, on a road trip to San Francisco. This road trip would prove useful, as the opener for Metallica on November 29th was a band called Exodus with Kirk Hammett on guitar. Also, Metallica attended a Trauma gig, with Cliff Burton on bass, and immediately tried to convince Cliff to join Metallica.
Cliff was convinced to join, on the condition that Metallica move to San Francisco. Cliff's first gig was March 5th, 1983. Ron McGovney was later seen in Phantasm. Problems between Dave Mustaine and the rest of the band arose in late March on a road trip to the east coast. Dave was given a bus ticket back home and unceremoniously released, while Kirk Hammett flew in and the band did not miss a gig. At this time, the band stayed with Anthrax and from what the band has said, it was very tough living, as all their little money went towards the band.
The first album, "Kill 'em All," was recorded for Megaforce Records in the summer of 1983, and after some touring, they cut a four song demo in October. James Hetfield became the vocalist out of necessity and had considered finding a replacement so he could be a full time rhythm guitar player. They contemplated asking vocalist John Bush, vocalist of Armored Saint and later to be vocalist of Anthrax, to join but he declined, deciding to stay with "his buddies band." In the end Hetfield decided to take over vocals once and for all. The second album, "Ride The Lightning," came out in the spring of 1984, featuring riffs from Dave Mustaine and also Tom Hunting via Kirk Hammett.
Work on a third album began in the summer of 1985, and the album, "Master Of Puppets," was released in the spring of 1986. When James Hetfield broke his arm in a skateboarding accident in July, 1986, six weeks of gigs featured roadie John Marshall on rhythm guitar (he would later join Metal Church). On September 25th, James was back. One more gig was played on the 26th, and then on the morning of the 27th, their tour bus hit a patch of black ice and flipped over, killing bassist Cliff Burton. (Morbid aside: he and Kirk had switched bunks just a few hours before.)
Master of Puppets 1986
The album's central themes are "Dishonesty" and "Deception".
"The Thing That Should Not Be" is based on H.P. Lovecraft's
short story "Shadow Over Innsmouth".
The swelling bass intro to "Damage, Inc." is based on a Johann
Sebastian Bach piece, titled "Come, Sweet Death". Cliff Burton
studied Bach as a teenager.

Ride the Lightning 1984
Dave Mustaine gets a co-songwriting credit for
"Ride the Lightning" and "The Call of Ktulu."
"For Whom the Bell Tolls" is titled after the book by Ernest
Hemingway, and borrows its subject matter from one passage.
"Escape" is an early (and somewhat misplaced) attempt at
commercial writing. Metallica did not perform this song live
until 2012, when they performed the album in its entirety.
"Creeping Death" is lyrically about the biblical story of the
plagues of Egypt.
"The Call of Ktulu" is titled after a H.P. Lovecraft story,
although the original spelling is "Cthulhu".
01. Fight Fire With Fire
02. Ride the Lightning
03. For Whom the Bell Tolls
04. Fade to Black
05. Trapped Under Ice
06. Escape
07. Creeping Death
08. The Call of Ktulu

Kill 'Em All 1983
The band originally wanted to title the album
"Metal Up Your Ass" but were denied.
The original cover art still exists.
The title "Kill 'Em All" was what Cliff Burton
said after the record company rejected the original
"Metal Up Your Ass" cover. "Just fuckin' kill 'em all"
were his exact words.
Original LP pressings had "Bang that head that doesn't bang"
printed on the back of it. Also, the first few original CD
pressings had it printed on the back.
Bonus tracks on the first Elektra pressing are:
"Am I Evil" and "Blitzkrieg", from the 1984 Creeping Death EP.
"The Four Horsemen" is about the Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse in John's Revelation.
"Phantom Lord" is titled after one of James Hetfield's
pre-Metallica bands.

02. The Four Horsemen
03. Motorbreath
