Last update/review: August 16, 2002


Back in 1983, a little-known band called Americade arrived on the metal scene, sporting patriotic costumes (befitting their name) and a Van Halen style on their American Metal album. They were not heard from again for many years, up until the mid-nineties, when a second album was released, with a title (americade.com) that seemed to cash in on the then-new Internet craze. The band hasn't been heard from since. Ex-bassist Dave Spitz is the brother of former Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz.
