What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Disaster Strike? Mayhem, insanity, mass uproar, carnage, perhaps total anarchy? Well, here is what you get: pure, unhinged, backbreaking, skull-crushing heavy metal. Disaster Strike is a band based on the idea that heavy metal is the most energetic and emotional form of music on the planet. This is not just another metal band; this is a release of pure fury, straight up energy that pours directly from the guts and the souls of the insane humans that create it. This is not a band to be taken lightly, only the bravest of metal legions will hail to Disaster Strike, and they will hail loudly! The only statement from this band is that it is time for metal to rule!!

Originally created by vocalist Jay Sherman, drummer Mike Morrissey, and guitarist Matt Cece, the trio quickly began creating the sound that would become Disaster Strike. Soon, bassist Beto Grillo joined forces to crank the low end, and as time went, the band continued to develop as a metallic force to be reckoned with. Influenced by metal bands of various tastes and forms such as Dimmu Borgir, Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, Pantera, Gwar, Converge, and many, many more, the band developed a sound that relates to all genres of heavy music. There are no boundaries, no limits to what they can do and the band is constantly working to take their sound to another level of destruction.

Out of all this insanity brings us 11 songs of chaos that will bang your head, raise your horns and bring you to your knees. This is of course Disaster Strike’s first release entitled “Deathbomb”, a self produced effort, with a name that says it all. With no names, all songs are titled by number in the order in which they were written. The album title is enough to describe the songs, and the band feels that the music can speak for itself. While Deathbomb is a metallic masterpiece and a healthy debut for this quartet of mental cases, Disaster Strike is poised to continue to bring chaos to the metal world. There is no doubt that this band will break down every wall and every barrier in its way, and show this world that metal is God, and Disaster Strike is its prophet.
