Age Of Evil

January 30, 2010 by  
Filed under Spotlight Bands

The vintage metal sounds of yesteryear are alive and well in the modern metal generation.  Don’t believe it?  All you have to do is check out Age of Evil –  the fast rising quartet out of Scottsdale AZ,  for the supersonic proof.  Keeping it all in the family the band is comprised of two brother tandems-singer/rhythm guitarist Jeremy Goldberg (age 19) and bassist Jacob Goldberg (18),  joined by lead guitarist Jordan Ziff (18) and drummer Garrett Ziff (20).  Friends and blood brothers since childhood the foursome have a natural chemistry that leads to the perfect recipe for metal mayhem. 

And look out metal veterans, Age of Evil is rapidly becoming a metal outfit that can do battle.   This is especially evident by their simply ferocious six-track EP, “Get Dead” which will give music fans a one way ticket to the future of metal.  Ready for the ride?

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with the band prior to their recent performance at Showcase Live in Foxboro, MA supporting Hail! On the 2nd night of a brief Northeast run.
