Black Martyr / Bio

Hailing From the Detroit, MI area, Black Martyr (formerly Feast of Diamonds) is a high energy heavy/thrash metal band.
It all started when singer Joe Hunt Met ex-bassist Neil Tortonesi at a school event. The two were interested in starting a band and shortly after that started jamming. Later Joe Hunt moved away to Newport Mi, where he met Troy Johnson, who also shared an interest in being in a band. The trio jammed for a while and played at a battle of the bands at Metro South church, they won second place and a recording session (which we be happening soon). Afterwards they were approached by lead guitarist Chris Redmond. He took interest in them, and shortly auditioned to join the band. It was a success!! Shortly after terror struck, Neil left the band, ushering in new bassist Emilio Flores. Until further complications ushered in new bassist Caleb Bilbrey. The band was off and running. Their sound is like Avenged Sevenfold and Black Veil Brides meets Metallica and Megadeth, Modern but thrashy.

Although their image is dark and gloomy, Their onstage presence is full of unseen energy!!!!!
A show you would never regret!!!
