Violent Transitions started in the late 90's as the brain child/labor of love of Tom Ashbrook and Dave Kingry. Tired of the rap and hip-hop that permeated the air-waves, they longed for the resurgence of the original metal and hard rock of the 70s and 80s.
Working in the home studios of Tom and his brother, they wrote and recorded their first 4 song EP 'Change is Hard'. Shortly after, they record...ed their first full length release, the self-titled album 'Violent Transitions'. Internal strife then broke up the band for a number of years. Tom and Dave again re-united, and after working through a series of musicians, have a core group ready to hit the trail putting on shows for hard rock fans everywhere.
