Heavy Metal from Orlando Florida
5 BILLION DEAD come to battle as THE NEW AMERICAN HEAVY METAL claiming dominion over the Southern music scene. Just one listen, and you can immediately tell this is not your run of the mill, average metal outfit. No trends. No Gimmicks. Only quality, substance, innovation, and the intangibles rarely found within today’s music. Punishing rhythms, blistering musicianship, dynamic vocals prowess, and dominating live performances have thrust 5BD to the top of the mountain, setting the standard, conquering each city one by one.
Sounds like Old School Metal
Of course, we are huge Metal fans ourselves and were influenced by the “classic” Metal bands. With that said, each member of 5BD grew up in very different circumstances and environments, creating a mix of very unique styles and influences. For those looking for a list of influences, here would be a short few: Pantera, Sepultura, Anthrax, Meshuggah, Slayer, Soulfly, Fear Factory, Testament, Exodus, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden are some of our favorites.
