Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
It all started when I was put in touch with Stu Marshall of Death Dealer through Bruce Boullet (former guitarist of my legendary band Racer X). Stu wanted to hire me to sing some songs for his Empires of Eden album and possible other solo projects. So he sent me a group of songs and after working on them for a bit I realized that we were making a really strong connection and that's really how the band started. We went to working on tunes through correspondence, be he lives in Sydney, Australia and I in Lake Tahoe, California. We put together what I think is a great album. Stu and Clay T flew here from Sydney and we did shows at the Whiskey a Go Go and up here in Lake Tahoe also doing a number of videos and photo ops. Released the album in May 2016 and just recently vinyl release with CD inside.

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music.
It a heavy metal stew of all the great bands we learn from the past i.e. Black Sabbath Judas Priest and of course bands that we have all put together mainly mine Racer X and Stu's bands as well. Of course when you start mixing those things you hopefully have a new vibe all together.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums.
Cause I'm broke,and if you're a true metalhead this is true metal.

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
We've released our flagship album Blasted to Static and all of the press has been good for a minor few who just are in the new metal genre.

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Done only a few live shows being we are trying to get promoters and the label to fund tours overseas or here in the states. We are hoping with release of the second album will get more activity in this area.

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We not only can do Blasted to Static music but music from our other bands as well being we come from many different bands in the past. You can expect some Racer X to be thrown in the mix.

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Writing songs right now and getting ready to put together our second album.

Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
ITunes, Spotify, Amazon… And you can go to blastedtostatic.com to order vinyl and/or CD.
