Wrathchild America

 

Wrathchild America was an American Metal band formed in Martinsburg, West Virginia in 1978. They released two studio albums through Atlantic Records, and gained charting success through the Billboard 200. In 1993, they changed their name to Souls at Zero.

 

Wrathchild was formed in 1979, then known has Atlantis, Tyrant and eventually Wrathchild. The band was formed by high school friends, Shannon Larkin, Kevin Keller and Terry Carter. Ralph "Rat" Tillman and Max "Tuck" McDonald soon joined. Wrathchild America were a renowned live act in the mid to late 1980s in the Maryland area when they were known simply as Wrathchild. After years of touring, playing gigs, and hard work, the band finally was signed to a major label in 1988. However, a British glam metal band with the same name, Wrathchild, sued and forced the delay of the debut release. The band amended their name by adding America, but by the time Wrathchild America had their album out, the entire thrash genre was falling to its eventual demise and they had missed the boat. Their subsequent release was far too late and was widely ignored. The band changed their name to Souls at Zero and revamped their stylistic approach.

Jay Abbene: According to a posting on Tartarean Desire, former TOXIK drummer Tad Leger has launched a brand new project called Lucertola (Italian for "lizard"). The group's musical style is said to be a blend of Leger's biggest influences: doom, old Voivod and Italian horror soundtracks (Goblin, Fabio Frizzi). Tad started out recording both guitar and drums himself, but was joined by his old Blackened Sky bandmate Andy Abbene and his brother Jay Abbene (Wrathchild America, Souls at Zero) in early December 2005

Souls At Zero was an American thrash metal band. They were originally known as Wrathchild America. The name change occurred after Wrathchild America was dropped from Atlantic Records in 1993, and was accompanied by a slight change in musical style. Souls At Zero released three albums on Energy Rekords before disbanding in the mid-1990s.
