Since 2009, Firestarter '82 combines the influences of '80s power thrash, NWOBHM, NES tunes and countless other sub-genres to create an epic powerhouse of '80s-influenced heavy metal. Firestarter '82's line-up was completed in late 2011, and in early 2012, we exploded onto the stages of West By West Music Festival; thus marked the beginning of our journey to rock your worlds, one lick at a time!
Since then, the band has stoked the fires in crowd-goers at multiple venues throughout the Austin music scene and currently continuing to spread its trail of flames to neighboring cities, such as College Station and San Antonio! Sooner or later, we hope for the tongues of our whirling inferno to be felt around the globe! Without you, we are but ashes in the gale.
