Stone Vengeance  


Stone Vengeance may be one of the first African-American metal bands, and may well be the only such band playing Christian thrash (the Christian angle is understated). The band formed in 1977, settled on the present trio membership by 1983, and were prime movers in the fertile SF Bay Area metal scene of the mid-eighties. Fame and fortune eluded them, but they have persevered all these years on their own terms. Their discography is a bit disjointed, as it's not clear which albums are compilations or reworkings of earlier material. As heard on 1998's To Kill Evil, the band seem most at home playing pre-thrash speed metal, but not without flair and diversity, with punk, 70's rock, and funk making their presence felt throughout.
