About Speed Theory
Speed Theory was formed in late 2004. These down-to-earth Wolverhampton youngsters have made a huge impact on the underground scene, with their very own brand of melodic thrash metal, that takes the rawness, intensity and, most defiantly, the pace of Old Skool thrash and combines it with the complexity and brutality of modern metal. Having already had numerous high-profile gigs, festivals and tours, with bands such as American Headcharge, Ill Nino, The Haunted, Breed 77 and Panic Cell, (to name but a few), and with more to come. The band has received top class reviews for both their debut album Hit the Dirt, which was released whilst all of the band were still in their teens, and also for their high-energy live performances.
They have received top 5 rankings in both Best Newcomer and Best Unsigned readers polls in Terrorizer Magazine and won Demo of the Year in Metal Hammer as well as cover mounts on Big Cheese and Metal Hammer, where they also had an incoming feature in Nov ‘06. They played Damnation Festival and Bloodstock Open Air festival in ‘07, where they went down a storm. In the autumn ‘07 they had their first headline UK tour and a very successful UK tour supporting Panic Cell. This has helped them secure endorsements from Warwick, Peavey, ESP Guitars and GHS Strings.
In January 2008 they came second in a worldwide competition to tour Europe with the Mighty Megadeth, and ‘08 will also see the release of their eagerly awaited second album, Blood Money, which was produced by the Legendary James Dunkley(Aiden, Soil, The Rotted, American Headcharge, Sabbatt) and is being mastered by Mr. Alex Guadagnoli (Addiction Crew) and released through Ant Hill Records (UK). With two UK headline tours this year, a support slot with TBA, a mini Dutch tour planned for later this year and a full European tour support booked for 2009, Speed Theory are definitely a band to look out for!
