Old-school US thrash metal vets (guitarist/vocalist) Scott Owen [SUBVERSION A.D., ex-ELIMINATE, ex-HIRAX, ex- PIRANHA], (drummer) Joe Cangelosi [BROOKLYN MILITIA, ex- ELIMINATE, ex- WHIPLASH, ex- KREATOR, ex- DEATHCORPS] and (bassist) Rich Day [ex- WHIPLASH, ex- PRIMAL SCREAM, ex- DEATHCORPS] have formed what is sure to a bonafide thrash metal assault task force. They already have material recorded for a demo that is tentatively scheduled for release at the end of this month. Scott and Joe offered these comments about their recent departure from ELIMINATE (led by ex- DARK ANGEL vocalist , Don Doty) and their upcoming future with UNCIVIL WAR:

Joe Cangelosi: “I just wanted to let people know we parted ways with ELIMINATE because we wanted to play original music and not DARK ANGEL covers and we wish them the best. We need to do what’s good for us”.

Scott Owen: “I’m excited to work with such seasoned musicians. The original music is flowing and will be unleashed soon. It’s nice to be in a band with brothers and have camaraderie again. I’m excited for the future!”. 

With over a century of combined experience between these three established musicians in the US thrash metal scene, I would be hard-fucking-pressed not to get excited about this band. Be sure to stop by their Facebook artist page , check it out and give them a “Like”. Some wars are necessary. So are some bands. Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!

I grew up in northern California during the 1980s and have been an AVID heavy metal fan since 1982. Having experienced the Bay Area thrash metal scene first hand, thrash metal will always be at my core, However, I am also a huge fan of death metal, doom metal, traditional heavy metal, stoner rock/metal and old-school black metal. If it concerns any of those sub-genres, (to borrow a quote from Christopher Walken in 'THE KING OF NEW YORK') "I want in on it!!". Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!
