Over the course of a metal band’s long crusade, the lineup often changes. Singers especially can make a crucial difference in sound, marking different eras or sometimes even completely different styles of music. Today host Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) salutes singers, some infamous and some lesser-known, whose appearances helped launch the efforts of bands including Anthrax, Faith No More, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Kataklysm, Exodus, Candlemass, Arch Enemy, Cannibal Corpse, and more!
For dozens of photos of Bay Area thrash metal pioneers Exodus and Legacy/Testament, featuring original singers Paul Baloff and Zetro Sousa, check out the acclaimed MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Shots From the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter, by Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew, by clicking HERE.
