Dublin Death Patrol  

This supergroup/project debuted in 2007, but its history goes back many years prior. Fronted by two of the Bay Area's most well-known vocalists in Testament's Chuck Billy and Exodus's Steve Souza and featuring several friends and relatives (two are brothers of Chuck, and another is Steve's brother), the first seeds of Dublin Death Patrol were sown in the early 80's in their Bay Area hometown (that's Dublin, California, not Ireland!) in a band called Rampage. That band never went anywhere, but even after Chuck Billy went to Testament and Willy Lange joined Laaz Rockit, the memories of Rampage never faded, and so years later the idea came about to round up the gang and see what might develop. And so the Dublin Death Patrol, an concept for so long, became an official band, recording DDP 4 Life in 2007. Not surprisingly, thrash is the order of the day here, but not a tired rehash of old ideas, as these guys sound fresh and invigorated, and of course you can't go wrong with Souza and Billy as co-vocalists. Proof positive that thrash is still a vibrant metal genre, one hopes that DDP is not a one-time project. As of this writing (fall 2010), the band is still active and there have been talks of a new album.
