Painting The Massacre first began in 2009 under the name Blood of the Damned. After kicking up some dust in the local San Antonio scene they soon switched their name to Painting The Massacre in 2010 while they recorded their debut album The Evers Endeavor. PTM has played numerous shows and tours at nearly every venue in and around the south Texas area, namely in San Antonio and including the Thrash and Burn Tour, Project Independent showcase, plenty of national acts and other great shows, but getting there has been a long road.
PTM is the joining of members from two bands. Blood of the Damned originally began in Germany with guitarists Marcus Garcia, Danny Abbott, and drummer AJ Logan. After playing in the German local scene for a few years, they relocated to San Antonio in search of new members. After a year of searching, Singer Chris Whelchel and Bassist Andres Montemayor from SA local band Vengeance Upon Thee joined the band.
Since early 2009, they have been climbing the local metal scene and released their debut album, The Evers Endeavor, to finish off a busy and exiciting 2010. Pushing the album and their live show in 2011, PTM was busy playing all over San Antonio and venturing to out of town venues throughout the region, while building a local fan base and a type of brotherhood with fellow SA local metal bands. Nothing makes us happier then to play to a pumped up crowd with a great lineup of talented bands and we are proud to say that we have accomplished that many times over with the help of the ever growing south Texas Metal scene. In mid 2012 after a packed schedule and coming off a Texas tour original vocalist Chris Whelchel stepped down from the position of Frontman and Vocalist for personal reasons. He will be missed onstage and off and his contributions to PTM are more then appreciated. However this machine does not plan on stopping . We are auditioning vocalists and will settle for nothing less then the same high standards we hold ourselves to. Expect a lot more in the upcoming years from Painting The Massacre, including a EP release with new music and an ever expanding merchandise selection and much more!!!!
