“This five man outfit from Norfolk, Virginia delivers a great mix of hard rock/ metal. Before this untitled debut, they already released a 4 song demo “Let It Rust” !

He really goes loose and sings, yells and shouts until he drops ... This allows ATWB to profile itself as better than just "a copy of ..."

Als voorganger op dit tittelloze debuut brachten ze al de 4 song demo cd “Let It Rust” uit! De muziek beukt lekker en is een beetje een mengeling van een heviger Skid Row met Avenged Sevenfold, maar het is zanger John Ferreira die er een ietwat ”

Q: Do you guys play proms?
A: Well... we play all original music which isn't typical for what people want from a band that plays proms. Also proms are geared towards dancing. We aren't considered a dance band. However, we would never rule out a chance to play in front of people!
