Sanctuary, formed in Seattle in 1985, was a pet discovery of Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine. He helped get the band signed to CBS/Epic Records, produced their first album, and took them on the road with Megadeth. The band consisted of vocalist Warrel Dane, guitarists Lenny Rutledge and Sean Blosl, bassist Jim Sheppard, and drummer Dave Budbill; after their second album, Sanctuary disbanded, with Dane and Sheppard going on to form Nevermore.

*P.S. Jeff Loomis sent a tape to metal band Sanctuary when he heard they had lost their guitarist. He got the job, but it was not slated to be a long-lasting one. The group broke up two months later in 1991. However, as the ashes of Sanctuary were clearing, Loomis, along with two other members of the group, formed the band Nevermore.

THE ACCUSED AD
If you like hardcore and metal. You have a warm spot for good old days. You probably liked the Accused from Seattle. Considered to be one of the top ten crossover bands of the 80’s. With just one original member the real accused is still plugging along. But the rest of the guys from the band still wanted to play the old songs. So what did they do? Formed the accused AD (formerly known as martha’s revenge),
This time around the accused AD will be playing songs off of the Combat Records Release “More fun than an open casket funeral”. To commemorate the 30 year anniversary of the release.

NWOAHM revival band from Washington Capital.
RivetSkull is an echo from the birth of heavy metal. A reflection of a magical moment in time when heavy metal was born in the 70’s and 80’s. Evolution of the genre? Not happening here. This is the Jurassic Park of heavy metal, the regrowth of that same DNA that created the beasts that first roamed the dark valleys of Birmingham, Leyton, the foothills of the Cascades and the plains of Texas. If you are looking for the next new sub-sub-genre of heavy metal you won’t find it here.
What you will find is heavy, melodic and riff laden music with clear and strong vocals. There is a strong groove with prominent bass lines and tight fitting guitar riffs. The singing will take you back to a day when skill, melody, power and style mattered. Like good metal – you will feel it in your core as much as you will hear it in your ears.
