Usurper

Chicago's Usurper has been grinding it out since the early 90's, when the band was formed, initially as a side project. Their style heralds the best of underground 80's metal, evil and mean, but for prime influences, one need look no further than Celtic Frost. Usurper has nailed the cult Swiss band's sound to a T, from the crushing mean guitar tone to the death grunts that Tom Warrior made famous almost twenty years ago. These guys clearly aren't about innovation or complexity in their music, but their unabashed enthusiasm for all things metal is to be commended, and Twilight Dominion simply crushes. They finally decided to call it a day in September 2007.

Recent album: Lords Of The Permafrost, released on March 22, 2019.
