Lazarus A.D.


Everyone’s tags

Lazarus A.D. is an American band that formed in the frozen tundra of southeastern Wisconsin in the spring of 2005. Dan Gapen (guitars/vocals), Jeff Paulick (bass/lead vocals), Alex Lackner (guitars), and Ryan Shutler (drums), redefine the phrase “alcoholism and aggression” in music. They subject metal heads to furious nights of head banging while drinking venues dry. Have no doubts that Lazarus A.D. is a thrash band, but merely in attitude as their sound is no simple throwback to the 80s bay area sound. They breathe a breath of fresh air into modern thrash with intelligent, memorable riffs, mid-tempo grooves, and high-flying solos.

In a few short years, Lazarus A.D. has accomplished more than they ever expected. In the small city of Kenosha, WI, the fire began to spread quickly. Fueled only by a free three song demo, the guys played as much as possible and landed a big break in the summer of 2006 when they had the honor of being direct support for the legendary Anthrax in Milwaukee. They continued to tour the midwest throughout the summer and fall and finally began work on their first full length album in January of 2007. Recorded and engineered by Chris Djuricic (Soil, November’s Doom, Michael Angelo Batio) at Studio One, and mastered by James Murphy (ex Death, Testament), The Onslaught was a force to be reckoned with.

    E @Woodgod tens razão... Isto nao é thrashcore ... Ou ê thash ou groove metal ou até os dois... Mas nada tem a ver com thrashcore que nao tem nada a ver com uma junção entre thrash e hardcore ou Metalcre como muitos pensam

    Anyway, heard a song and it sounded like bad wrestling music. I'll pass.

    These guys have absolutely nothing do with with thrashcore. Thrashcore isn't thrash metal mixed with modern metalcore garbage. It's an old hardcore punk subgenre that predates this stuff.

    Most people who know anything about this band will know that the guys aren't bothered about subgenres, they love all kinds of metal and just want to play music hey love playing, wether it's thrash, groove metal, metalcore, whatever, it doesn't matter

    You're joking right? It's got metalcore written all over it. The style of plenty of the riffs and the totally queer harsh verse-clean chorus(the title track is a perfect example of this) = metalcore. Don't be in denial.

    don't get me wrong, I actually like some metalcore but it doesn't suit their sound. I enjoy their thrash/groove sound more.

    I love both their releases but damn Black Rivers Flow has way too much metalcore elements.

    The Onslaught and Black Rivers Flow are awesome... The only thing that could make Lazarus A.D. any better is to drop a 3rd album today!
