Black Mass is a Three-Piece Thrash Metal Band formed in early 2012. With influences ranging from 80's Thrash Metal and Death Metal bands, "Black Mass" has formed to bring back the true Thrash Metal sound. Their love of the 80's Thrash Metal era, combined with OSDM bands such as Death, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse are two very big influences, among many others, that inspired this band to create their own style of Thrash Metal.
The line up consists of:
Brendan O'hare - Guitar/ Vocals
Cristian Azevedo - Bass / Vocals
Yianni Tranxidis - Drums
In late-August/early-September, Black Mass recorded their debut album at the BrickHit House in Hyannis, MA with Sound Engineer Sean Fitzpatrick titled "The Second Coming" with original artwork/album design by Graphic Designer/Artist Adam LoRusso.
Ever since their formation in May 2012, Black Mass has been playing shows all over New England (MA, NY, RI, CT, NH) with bands such as Vektor, Razormaze, Abnormality, Skull Hammer, Led to the Grave, Pathogenic, Lich King, and many more.
Their debut album "The Second Coming" was released on February 18th 2013 as a digital copy, and soon to be released as a digipack format.
