Pick Axe Preacher / Bio

Aggressive, in your face Detroit Thrash is the best and simplest way to describe this cult mocking heavy metal band! Pick Axe Preacher strips away the fancy bells and whistles that clutter today’s music, and gives you a full force elbow drop to the dome. With blistering guitar riffs, groovy-speed drum beats, shredding bass lines, and vocals that make you feel like you're in military school. What else can you ask for?

Mike Williams, Mike Hopper, Stu Stevens and Jeff Vergiels came together and starting jamming in late 2013. They wrote and recorded their first self-titled EP, along with a Slayer Cover “War Ensemble” with a release date of May 3rd 2014. They also filmed a music video for the hit song “Angels in the Ground”, which was also played on Detroit's 101.1 WRIF Midnight Metal. After its monumental release PXP hit the road hard with gig after gig every weekend, and quickly became a dominating regional band within a few short months. In February of 2014 PXP became an LLC to further their business endeavors. This let to our signing with indie label “Michigan Craft Records” in March of 2015. While doing shows, the parties and fans were epic. So, PXP decided to film all of the craziness which led to a DVD release at Motor City Nightmares (horror movie convention) on April 25th 2015 called “Birth of a Cult”. PXP has also just released a new full length album called “Salem Justice” on June 19th 2015. Which had Shawn Knight from Child Bite (Housecore Records) doing guest vocals on the song “American Christian”. After another epic release PXP is hitting the road again in support of the new album.
