Good & Evil
A Sullivan County based band formed in 2001 by brothers Joe and Kurt. The band consists of four musicians, who collectively have ten years experience. The first two years were spent developing material and perfecting their sound. By 2003 they were ready to hire bass player, Ken Decker, who brought his talent for bass playing into the mix. And by 2004 they began debuting their new material in various venues across New York State. In March of 2005, lead guitarist, Geoff Allen, was added to the bands line up. Joe composes all of the bands material, which has a very original slant on the classic thrash metal style. Their music gives new life to the thrash metal of the 80's and 90's with powerful vocals, killer harmonics, and chest pounding double bass. The band is aspiring to bring a renewed face to the metal scene. They believe that there is still a place out there for the old school metal, and the steady growth of their fan base shows that there are people out there that would agree. People between the ages of 10 - 50 are taking notice of them and their music. Their debut album Good and Evil was recorded by Kol Marshall, Music Producer, Recording Engineer. Kol has recorded such bands as King Diamond, Ministry, and Mercyful Fate. After finishing up their five days in the studio Kol said, 'They are certainly one of the regions finest up-and-coming metal acts and will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with.' Dean Sternberg of Pure Sweet Hell, and formerly of Into Eternity said, 'You guys are killer,' after he was given a demo from a friend that attended one of their shows. Most recently their music has been compared to that of Iced Earth and Testament in a review that was done by Nikos Parastatidis of Behind the Veil e-zine. Joe, Kurt, Ken, and Geoff continue to work on promoting the band, making music, and growing their following. They all agree that the dream is worth the sacrifice and the work, and they are hopeful that one day it will all pay off.
