Biography

MACE, the Seattle area Thrash band that debuted as a trio on the ‘Metal Massacre V’ album and Northwest Metalfest. MACE at that time, contributing the track ‘Marching Saprophytes’, comprised of lead vocalist and drummer Vence Le Rose, guitarist Dave Hillis and bassist Kirk Verhey. Verhey would take over the lead vocal position in time for 1985’s debut ‘Process Of Elimination’. Shane White departed before the second album and MACE drafted drummer David Kopler. MACE shared the bill with a number of acts including SLAYER, ANTHRAX, METAL CHURCH, The CIRCLE JERKS and Seattle heavyweights, The ACCUSED. Known for their live shows that would on occasion, lead to borderline riots, their influence is still felt today even as far away as Germany and Japan.

UPDATE on MACE:
Legendary co-founders of thrash metal Mace are back!

After a brief, 23 year vacation from the Thrash scene, the guys have decided to lace up the combat boots for battle one more time. These guys shared the stage with the biggest thrash bands of the mid 80’s including Slayer, Anthrax, Death Angel, Metal Church, The Circle Jerks, The Accused and many more.

Last week the band quietly leaked the info that they were getting back together and from the Northwest, they fired a shot that could heard around the world. Bands, promoters and even record labels, some as far away as Germany started talking about Mace. There is a huge amount of excitement in the Mace camp and these guys are locked in with laser focus and ready to melt some faces, just like they did over 2 decades ago.
For added excitement, Tommy Niemeyer from The Accused made the new Mace logo…he doesn’t do that for just anyone and it kicks ass!
