HUMUNGUS


Jack Bauer (vocals) - Peyton Gregory (guitar) - Joseph Granger (guitar) - Wayne Pompey (bass) - Robby Scarce (drums)

 Founded in 2010 in Richmond, Virginia, HUMUNGUS are traveling between traditional Heavy Metal and Thrash. The influences are thus also aptly stated with EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, WHIPLASH and numerous other bands of this direction. An American band with American influences - what should go wrong for fans of this genre? Old School Thrash is the slogan! In 2011 they left the world their first demo with two songs and their first release on the local Forcefield Records label. This was a 5-song EP titled "Drinkin' a beer". The band set off on their first East Coast tour. Since then they have done several tours and played at several big festivals. A 7" single followed one year later and finally the debut album "War band" was released on their own in 2015. This album was re-released on KILLER METAL RECORDS in summer 2018. Nine songs are on "War band", which emphasize the direction of the band in terms of style. The band around singer Jack Bauer presents himself fresh and witty. At the present day, not too many bands indulge in a HUMUNGUS – Balls Katalognummer/catalogue number: KMR-CD042 Veröffentlichungsdatum / release date: 13.12.2019 Band/band: HUMUNGUS Titel/title: Balls Format/format: CD/digital Spielzeit/playing time: 39:12 min Stil / style: HEAVY METAL Herkunft / origin: USA style that was unquestionably born over thirty years ago. Free from modern influences, HUMUNGUS present themselves as if they came from that time. With "Raptors in the pit" one week after the release date the foretaste of the second album was released as a video. The videos show a similar humour as the label colleagues MEGA COLOSSUS celebrate. Also check out "Drinkin' a beer" and "War band". Since the last album was released two new members have joined HUMUNGUS: Joseph Granger (rhythm guitar) and Wayne Pompey (Bass guitar). The album was written and produced by Peyton Gregory. The songs were mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering. The album artwork was illustrated by Steven Yoyoda.
