Final Drive / Bio

Southern Groove Thrash Metal, Final Drive, a heavy metal band from St. Louis, Missouri, delivering fast-paced, high-energy, infectious auditory assault. If you like Pantera, Clutch, Slayer & AC/DC, you should love Final Drive.

A singular focus on getting asses out of seats, Final Drive brings to the stage an aggressive and precise attack of blunt force hell raisin' beer drinkin' Heavy Metal. After extensively touring on the DIY circuit and performing at over 200 venues Final Drive is a live experience you do not want to miss.

“Dig Deeper” represents the hard work, dedication, sacrifice, belief and focus on the future of Final Drive”. On their 5th studio album, Final Drive took new approaches and new collaborations that have proven to yield some very powerful music. Tracks like "The Last Time" & "Life Decided" show the band making efforts in melody, while "Built to Break" and "This is How" solidify thrash elements and aggression. After touring for 2 years on Final Drive’s last effort LIFESWORK, the band is bursting at the seams to bring DIG DEEPER to the stage and to their beloved Metal Family. “We owe our fans this record, they made it happen, they supported us and it’s changed our abilities to present this album to so many more”.

Final Drive successfully funded “Dig Deeper” on Kickstarter this past Nov/Dec confirming their strong foundation with their fans. Releasing an album free from contracts, outside control and the struggle that most newly signed bands face, has given Final Drive the power to achieve their dreams in the DIY way they’ve always known. “We do this for ourselves and for our Metal Family, nothing else matters”.

The first single from DIG DEEPER, “This Is How” is the mission statement, and sets the tone for the rest of the album. Having collaborated with producer Charlie Bellmore (Jasta, Kingdom of Sorrow, Kings and Liars) their sonic power has been pushed to their absolute best. “Final Drive Will Hook You Harder than the Candyman” proclaims MetalSucks writer Phil Boozeman.
