THE DEATH FROM THE WEST TOUR
The Death from the West Tour features bands that epitomize the genres of Death Metal and Metalcore Influences, Short Fuse, Repaid In Blood, and Scylla.
Short Fuse™ is a six piece, Melodic Death Metal act from the San Francisco area who craft their compositions by skillfully combining melodic riffs with powerful driving beats augmented with electronic background scores and savage upfront vocals. One of the hardest working bands in metal, shortly after their formation in the previous year, they released their full-length 2005 debut album, “Hate Brought to this Place Called Home”. The album, which was produced by Juan Urteaga (Vile, Machine Head, Skinlab) with select tracks engineered by Professional Murder Music frontman Roman Marisak and skillfully mastered by Tom Baker of Precision Mastering (Marilyn Mason, Rob Zombie, Nine Inch Nails), kick started the band into full gear the moment it dropped.
No stranger to the stage, they have toured in Europe and across the US capturing the imagination of thousands of fans at festivals such as Mayhem Fest, Summer Slaughter, All Stars, California Metalfest, Locobazooka, Rockin’ Roots, End of Summer Days, Seattle Hempfest, and LocoFest. They have performed with many of the dominating players in the music scene including Anthrax, As I Lay Dying, Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse, Disturbed, Dying Fetus, Fear Factory, (hed) P.E., Job for a Cowboy, Killswitch Engage, Motorhead, Mudvayne, Slipknot, Suicide Silence, We Came As Romans , and White Chapel, along with legends such as Alice in Chains, Obituary, Slayer and countless others. Their performances have been witnessed by fans at prestigious venues on both coasts such as the Shoreline Amphitheater (California), the Tweeter/Comcast Center (Massachusetts) and W. Palm Beach Intl Raceway (Florida). Short Fuse is known for infecting their audience by delivering unforgettable performances that leave their bruised and intense fans bloodthirsty for more!
With an arsenal consisting of screamer and intense guttural vocalist Myke “Death” DiBattista, the eerie leads of Scott “Beef” Chavez, Frank Casares’ distorted rhythm static, low end thud producer Larry Hoang, the relentless beatings slammed by Dan “Zaffle” Hartnet, and Martin Boynton’s insane symphonic spasms, the musical world is being taken by storm. So turn your stereos up, leave the weak behind, and prepare for the impending blood-bath. There is an epidemic hitting your town; the Short Fuse disease is spreading fast!
