Hardcore,Punk rock , Metal crossover.

At a time when our country’s future is uncertain, a band called Mad At Sam reminds us of what is like to be an angry, vocal opponent of the system, irate at human injustices perpetrated by those in power. Mad At Sam reminds us of what crossover should be - fast, loud, and to the point.

Mad At Sam is a high-energy metal/punk/crossover band from the east bay area of California.

Mad At Sam formed in 1998 with members of local bands such as Powerhouse, Bad Intensions, Negative Perception, and the Full-Time Killers. The band was originally formed by Rick Fitzsimmons and Gene Jones who recruited Mike Walter on Bass. Mad At Sam started out as a three piece power trio with Gene on drums, Mike on bass, and Rick on vocals and guitar. Eventually it was decided to add Paul Santos on vocals to release Rick to full time guitar playing.

Mad At Sam influences have a wide range of artists. Rick goes back to the 80’s glam rock and metal scene. His influences at the band’s inception were Exodus, Slayer, Metallica, Guns n Roses, and Skid Row. While Gene’s influences were NOFX, Slayer, Terror, Suicidal Tendencies. The two of them conjured up “something in the middle”.

Mad At Sam hit the east bay scene by force and only continued to move forward. In 1999, Mad At Sam was approached by lead vocalist of east bay metal legends Exodus, Paul Baloff. At the time, Paul wanted to join Mad At Sam, change the name and write new lyrics.
