Hatebreed is an American metalcore band from Bridgeport, CT, formed in 1994. The band released its debut album, Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire in 1997, which gave them a cult following. The band began recording a three-song demo and selling it to locals in 1994. Those three songs would eventually be released on a split 7” single with New York’s Neglect in 1995. They followed that with the highly acclaimed EP, “Under The Knife” scheduled to come out on Big Wheel Recreation in 1995, but then was self-released in 1996. They went out on tour around the east coast/Midwest supporting UKHC band Voorhees. The following year they released Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire on Victory records, then home of some of the biggest bands in hardcore. The album sold more copies than any other debut in the history of the record company. Tours with bands such as Slayer, Deftones, Entombed and Napalm Death influenced their music and brought them to the attention of many non-hard-core fans. These influences were apparent on the band’s next two releases, 2002’s Perseverance and 2003’s The Rise Of Brutality. After the release of Rise Of Brutality, the band took part in the 2004 Unholy Alliance tour in Europe with Slayer, Slipknot and Mastadon. In June 2006, the band went on an extensive European tour which included a performance at the Download Festival in the U.K. Immediately following this tour, they played the main stage at Ozzfest 2006 alongside Dragonforce, Lacuna Coil, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed and co-headliners System Of A Down. The band’s fourth album, “Supremacy” was released in August 2006, their first and only release on Roadrunner Records, featuring new guitarist Frank Novinec. It peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 9 on the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart. The track “To The Threshold” appeared on the album, MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge. Frontman Jamey Jasta contends that the main them of Supremacy is overcoming “feelings of depression, guilt, sadness, anxiety and alienation. “I wanted to show that there is hope, and you have to start with yourself.” “You can’t help other people if you can’t help yourself.” In 2004 it was announced that the band was nominated for a Grammy Awared for Best Metal Performance at the 47th Grammy Awards for their song “Live For This,” which was on the album Rise Of Brutality. The awared was ultimately given to Motorhead for their cover of Metallica’s song, “Whiplash.” Combining hardcore with heavy metal, Hatebreed’s style has been described as metalcore, hardcore punk and beatdown hardcore. They are considered important to the development of metalcore, blending influences from hardcore and punk rock, as well as heavy metal subgenres such as thrash metal and groove metal alongside other bands in the 1990s such as Earth Crisis, All Out War and Integrity and Converge. Band influences are: Agnostic Front, Carcass, Entombed, Killing Time, Obituary, Sepultura, Sheer Terror and Slayer.

Madball is an American New York hardcore band that originated in the late 1980s as a side project of the band Agnostic Front. The band developed after Agnostic Front’s front man, Roger Miret would let his half brother Freddy Cricien take the mic and perform lead vocals during Agnostic Front shows. Madball consisted of AF’s vocalist Roger Miret on bass, Vinnie Stigma on guitar, Will Shepler on drums and then 12-year-old vocalist Freddy Cricien, Roger’s younger half-brother. Madball’s first shows consisted of previously unused Agnostic Front songs. Their first release was the Ball of Destruction EP in 1989. After years of playing shows in the NY area, a second guitarist, Matt Henderson, joined. At that point they had recorded and released the EP, “Droppin’ Many Suckers” for Wreck-Age Records. A year later Roger Miret left and was replaced by bass player Jorge “Hoya Rock” Guerra. The new incarnation of the band was signed by Roadrunner Records in 1994 and released a pair of full lengths; Set It Off in 1994 and Demonstration My Style in 1996. Touring steadily, the band built a sizeable fan base outside their hometown. 1995 saw the band participating in the N.Y.H.C. documentary and extensive interviews were conducted with Freddy as well as a performance on July 28, 1995 at the now-defunct Coney Island High. Along with bands Agnostic Front, Vietnom, Bulldoze, Resistance, H2O and Teamz, they comprise a part of New York’s DMS crew. Cricien and Hoya are also in the band Hazen Street, along with members of H2O and Cro-Mags.

Deicide is an American death metal band formed in Tampa Florida in 1987 by drummer/composer Steve Asheim, and guitarist brothers Eric and Brian Hoffman as “Carnage.” They then hired bassist/lyricst/vocalist Glen Benton and became “Amon,” later changing the band name to Deicide in 1989. Prior to becoming Deicide, the band recorded the “Feasting the Beast” 8-track demo in Benton’s garage and started playing some local gigs in Tampa. In 1989, they recorded their second demo, “Sacrificial” at Morrisound with producer Scott Burns. Benton reportedly strormed into Roadrunner Records’ A&R man Monte Conner’s office and presented him with the demo, saying “sign us, you fucking asshole!” The next day contracts were issued and the band’s name changed to Deicide at the request of the label. As Deicide the band released their self-titled debut album in 1990, which was also produced by Scott Burns. The debut featured re-recorded versions of all six of the “Sacrificial” tunes that got them signed. Both Hoffman brothers played technical solos at fast speeds with overlapping riffs, which gave the band the definitive heavy sound and complex song structures. This lineup remained intact until November of 2004, in the wake of increasing issues between Glen and the Hoffmans, allegedly regarding royalties and publishing. The Hoffman brothers later went on to reform Amon. The band rose to mainstream success in 1992 with their second album, “Legion,” and is credited as the second-best-selling death metal band of the Soundscan era, after Cannibal Corpse. Since their debut in 1990, the band has released twelve studio albums, one live album, two compilations and two DVDs. In November 2003, their first two albums, “Deicide,” and “Legion,:” were ranked second and third place in best-selling death metal albums of the Soundscan era. The band is known for their controversial lyrics, which cover topic such as Satanism, anti-Christianity, and blasphemy. Their lyrics have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticism from religious groups. Taylor Norberg as recently as January 19, 2022, has replaced Chris Cannella on guitar. If voted to win, ROG will release the first Roadrunner Years vinyl retrospective that would include all their studio + live albums on the label from 1990-2001 plus the Feasting the Beast EP. Many of the albums have never seen a proper release on vinyl or would be seeing their debut North American release on the format.
