As one of the frontrunners of what has come to be known as the “New Wave Of Thrash”, Ohio based VINDICATOR laid the framework for the band during Summer of 2005 as long time friends Marshall Law and brothers Vic and Jesse Stown came together with a singular vision, drawing influences ranging from first-wave Bay Area and Teutonic thrash to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Following the self-release of the band’s debut full-length album There Will Be Blood in 2008, VINDICATOR spent the next year gigging nationally in support of the album with such bands as Raven, Overkill, M.O.D., Hirax, Destruction, Exodus, and Kreator, Exmortus and many others. With the addition of lead shredder Mikey B. Lial, VINDICATOR once again hit the studio in late 2008 to record tracks for a split release with 80’s German cult metal legends Metal Witch. In late 2009 VINDICATOR signed to HEAVY ARTILLERY and began work on The Antique Witcheries a masterpiece of modern thrash metal mayhem sure to please fans of Dark Angel, Testament and Exodus.
VINDICATOR just recently wrapped up their “Coastal Catastrophe” tour and will be announcing more US and Canadian tour dates in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
