Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Speedrush were formed in 2005 in Athens, Greece with a purpose to play Speed and Thrash Metal the way we felt was right, as we ourselves were firstly fans of this sound. After several lineup changes over the years, the current line up is : Nir-vocals, Nick-guitar, Tasos-guitar, Spiros-bass, Andreas-drums.

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music? 
We play traditional Speed/Thrash metal with both American and European influences like Kreator, Deathrow, Assassin, Slayer, Razor, Destruction etc.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We ourselves as fans of this style we like the material, so if anyone is into 80’s style Speed and Thrash metal he/she could give it a chance.

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
Our debut album “Endless War”was recently released by Eat Metal records on Cd format and by Floga records on vinyl, and apart of that, one promo-cd in 2008. So far we had good response and we are optimistic!

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We love the energy of playing live, we have played gigs both with local bands and also supporting bands such as Razor (Can), Necronomicon (Ger), Legion of the Damned, V.O.J.D. etc

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We try to give 100% of our abilities and we believe in our material, so if someone is looking to promote honest music from fans to fans, he should check our stuff!

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We plan to play live as much as we can to spread our music to the metal world.

Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
You can check the full album on youtube, and if you want to support us you can buy our cd/vinyl/tshirt either through Eat Metal records, or Floga records, or directly from us! Cheers and thanks for the interview!
