Mass Punishments' concept began upon Chris spartan' Honorable discharge from the United States Army’s 3rd Infantry during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After witnessing the horrors and atrocities of war while crossing the Kuwait/Iraq international border and missing his second daughter’s birth, he returned to send his message – As loud and clear as possible. Milos uses combat as a platform, writing powerful rifts and lyrics to set the stage.
milos began their search for the voice for their message. Milos already knew who the lead should be; Erick Laurino, with a resume of ‘Severance’ and’ Mara’ – He had the look and the pipes to match. Brian Donat was also tapped to join, having worked on ‘Conceived’ and ‘War Crime. Donat held a position in Drumcorps qualified to compete in ‘World’s Fastest Drummer". now added to the unit bass player ferg from jackson nj brings powerful riffs to the mix and a heavyer sound ! milos and ferg bring punishment to the table!!!
