Rabid Assassin is a Horror Themed Drop-Tuned Heavy Metal band from south central PA. Formed in 2013 by veteran Epiphone Endorsed shredder guitarist, Thane Farace on Vocals/ Lead Guitar and fellow musicians Chad Bedsaul- Rhythm Guitar, Dan Delaney- Bass & Corey Brooks- Drums. Rabid Assassin quickly set out on a path of PURE MAYHEM sharing the stage with Metal Greats like "RAVEN, GENERATION KILL (Featuring Rob Dukes of Exodus), METAL MIKE (of Halford & Painmuseum), REVERENCE, MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO, RESISTANCE, SPREAD EAGLE and more"..... after cutting there teeth in the Mid-Atlantic region for a year, they went into the recording studio with world renowned producer DREW MAZUREK to record their debut CD "Eliminate The System" Being strong believers of the constitution of the United States Of America, they exercised the 1st amendment "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
This band is killing it vocally and musically -this may be too political for some but one of my favorite bands of all time is Megadeth and they have a very political and historical musical history.
"I hate" is a song about just about anything that may come to mind
religion , others minding their own business. phony and dishonest people, liars, thieves, hypocrites , lazy -ungrateful people, etc, etc.
"In for the kill" has a nice groove riff throughout and good lyrics all and all this is a good album and if it offends someone I say freedom of speech is what I am all about. We all have thoughts and ideas not all agree on and we don't always have too, but the world is full of ideas some good and some not so good.
"Everybody" is sure to offend everybody to some degree , nothing personal but they say what they feel and again this is a good song to groove too "Everybody, everybody --everybody I hate you all" "I am not prejudice & I have no shame , it's every fucking body that I hate the same"
Clearly this picture shows they don't hate their fans , good luck to them with this album.
