BLASTED TO STATIC, the new American / Australian kings of shred metal, featuring legendary vocalist Jeff Martin (Racer X / Badlands / Surgical Steel), guitarist Stu "The Hammer" Marshall (Death Dealer / Empires of Eden / Dungeon), bassist Rev Jones (Michael Schenker Group / Steelheart / Leslie West / Gundriver) and drummer Clay T have released official band member interview videos talking about the creation and origins of the band.
The Blasted To Static self titled high energy debut album was released on May 27, 2016 via Metalopolis Records (Germany).
Brace yourself for a vicious onslaught of shredding rock unlike anything you’ve heard in a long time. More explosive than a hailstorm of hand grenades, Blasted to Static delivers a cutting-edge offering that is both refreshingly new, and re-imagines the hallmarks of 80’s guitar histrionics as a sonic hurricane that will blow the roof off.

Blasted to Static represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene.
But for all the high-octane, hook-laden riffing mayhem, the band’s versatility also encompasses acoustic elements and more subtle, understated interludes. “We’re embracing an organic approach with this band,” says guitarist Stu Marshall. “Don’t expect music from a single genre -- Blasted to Static is all about full artistic freedom, so you might even hear echoes of Black Sabbath or Queen.”
