Mass Terror / Bio

Mass Terror is a hardcore punk band that was formed in 2007 in Los Angeles, CA by Thorr Viernes (vocals/guitar) Neil Martes (drums) and Jeff “Roach” Nunez (Bass). Mass Terror came out of the ashes of DTOX from Tecate, B.C. (Mexico). Thorr & Neil are blood brothers, and had resided in Baja California, Mexico & played in bands (Man Destroys Himself, Restos Mortales, Head Rush, Obscenidad), in the Mid 90's & early 2000's…

After many Tours, and Recording (DTOX) demos in Mexico City with good friend Kike Salazar (RIP), Tijuana & San Diego sessions in 2004 - 2005, Thorr & Neil decided to move back to L.A. to start a new, more heavier punk band, that’s when they met Jeff Roach at a Conflict show in Hollywood, and got together soon after to take out songs from the previous (DTOX) demos, songs like: Punx Unite, Riot Today & Racist People Suck!

Soon after Mass Terror got their first U.S. gig in Hollywood, @ the famous Knitting Factory, then M.T. went on to playing a slew of shows in Backyards, Local Bars and Venues for the next couple of years... In 2008, Mass Terror recruited Kyle (Temple of Dagon) on 2nd guitar.

In 2009 Mass Terror got the opportunity to record a Full Length Album in Tijuana, MX. And from this came their 1st album release “Break the System!” with 16 tracks! Hitting targets and issues like global corruption, nuclear war and mass extinction! The new record was released under indie label Opcion Sonica USA/ Punx Life Records. Mass Terror went on to promoting Break the System! By playing shows up and down the west coast with bands like: UK SUBS, Resistant Culture, Ass Rash, Verbal Abuse, Attitude Adjustment, Total Chaos, Clusterfux + many more…
M.T. also released a couple of Music Videos on YouTube.

In 2010, Jeff Roach decided to part ways with the band and Johnny X (Humachine/Social Conflict) was recruited on bass, Max Paul (Shot Out Hoods) was also recruited on guitar for shows in Southern California. In 2012, Eddie Lopez (Dr. Jack/ Head Rush) took bass duties and Josh Parten (Kill Kops) took on 2nd vocals.
