More Info:

Chicago based Aftermath, formed in 1985. They released their 1st demo in 1986. In 1987, they unleashed their 2nd demo entitled 'Killing the Future'. The band pursued a mind-blowing speed and technical brand of thrash that soon set them apart from the pack and in the process made them a pioneering crossover thrash band. The tracks War for Freedom & When Will You Die were both featured on the British 'Metal Forces' magazine compilation LP 'Demolition: Scream Your Brains Out' in 1988. Their appearance on this compilation further expanded the band's international appeal. By 1989, they released the underground classic demo 'Words That Echo Fear'. The band went onto to become a trailblazing progressive/technical thrash band in the years that followed. In 1990, based on the huge international success of the demo, RoadRacer Records (a subsidiary of Roadrunner Records) approached the band for a demo deal. Negotiations eventually broke down and Aftermath signed to Big Chief Records. The label's collapse halfway through the recording sessions led to a long delay in finishing the record. The album the band started to record in 1990 would postponed for 4 years. The experience forced them to issue the album Eyes Of Tomorrow under their own imprint in1994. The reemergence of one of the most original thrash bands ever continued in 2014 with their decision to reunite for several concerts in 2015. In 2017, the band started writing the material for their new album. There is Something Wrong is an 11-song opus recorded by Chuck Macak and mastered by Ted Jensen. A concept record in the truest sense of the word, the album features a mix of old-school crossover thrash and technical/progressive metal, and is a commentary on what is wrong with the world today. A calling out of the masses to wake up and know the real enemy. The music is urgent, and the lyrics challenge the listener to seek the truth. Aftermath signed a deal with Sleaszy Rider and we will release their new album!
