  • They have an amazing amount of good songs and albums that no one really knows of. Very underrated band with a tragic history, especially with Mark Reale dying in 2012. I saw them live in July this year in Barcelona and they are still a great live band, even if there are no original members left in the band. Todd Michael Hall has an appreciable stage presence and his voice is pretty much incredible, he may be even the best singer Riot has ever had. Anyway, more people should know about the band and listen to it. Shine on and Riot.
