Mad at the World's favorite thrash duo return with what appears to be the final chapter in the life of their beloved mascot Tungar, and with Terminal Dawn, he goes down in flames! BATTLETORN crank the brutality up higher with their apocalyptic thrash; filtering some early '80s hardcore fury through thrash metal unruliness via Marshall stacks. They blast through sixteen shattering songs that recall late '80s UK Earache Records acts as it does some Negative FX/ early D.R.I. style hardcore mania.
Battletorn started off as a trio, born in 2004, in NYC. Originially consisting of Beverly on vox, Omid on guitar and Will on drums, the band met, practiced, created 7 songs and less than a week later, played their first show. Weeks after that, their first release surfaced. By the end of 2005, Beverly left the band leaving just Omid to play guitar and “sing” and Will still playing drums. The first album with the two piece line-up, ‘Terminal Dawn’, was released mid-April, 2007. At the end of the summer of 2007 Omid moved to Nashville, but the 1000 miles apart failed to stop the band. A wild and fun tour of Japan in March 2008 was commemorated with a limited split single with Japanese thrashers M.G.T. on Outlaw Recordings. A new (and last) LP titled “Reflect The Filth” is due out in spring 2009, along with a book with art/photos/stories from the 5 years the band has been together. This will be the last release by the band, but there are plans to tour to support the album and continue to play live shows when possible. (last.fm)
