BULLDOZER

Reunited Italian black/speed/thrash metal band Bulldozer will be visiting the U.S. for a rare tour dubbed "40 Years of Wrath."Their debut album on Roadrunner Records, The Day of Wrath, was released in 1985, so not quite the 40th anniversary of that, but the band has been around since 1980. Not surprisingly, a bunch of the band members are new since they first reunited in 2008, but original member Alberto Contini aka AC Wild is still the frontman, along with original member Andy Panigada on guitar. Virginia's Deceased, Missouri's Ares Kingdom and the much newer South Carolina band Demiser -- all bands who play a mix of thrash and other metal genres -- are along for the old school ride. The NYC show is at Saint Vitus on 11/11 and all dates are here:
