Formed in 1997 out of former Hatebreed members, Death Threat's hardcore metal sound lands somewhere between Sick Of It All's aggressive approach and Napalm Death's thick sound.
1998 saw the release of their debut album, Last Dayz, on Stillborn Records. Quickly making a name for themselves with their popular live shows, the band traveled the East Coast wich eventually led to them signing with Triple Crown Records. Their next album, Peace & Security, came out in 2000 and was followed by more touring, including a memorable stint with Buried Alive. They returned to the studio in 2001 and by the spring of the next year, they had recorded For God and Government and it was released on Triple Crown Records. Before the dust could settle, they had already left for Europe to play with Agnostic Front and The Distillers to restart their grueling touring lifestyle. The next year, a split 7”/cd with Over My Dead Body led to a co-headling tour between the two artists. After much touring, the band recorded Now Here Fast in 2004, and followed up with Lost At Sea in 2009 on Reaper Records, and a split 12” with Rude Awakening in 2012 on BBB Records. Death Threat is still active after over 20 years, and a definite staple in the hardcore/punk scene.
