Threat Signal’s debut, Under Reprisal, is full of heavy guitar riffs, powerful double-bass drums, and passionate lyrics.

The band â€" lead singer Jon Howard, lead guitarist Kyle McKnight, guitarist Rich Howard, bassist Marco Bressette, and drummer George Parfitt â€" has formulated a sound of old school and European thrash metal with a melodic and unique voice.

The Hamilton band has been writing and recording the CD for the past year and a half and its effort clearly shows with the creation of an increasingly celebrated metal sound.

With production and backing vocals on several songs by Fear Factory’s Christian Olde Wolbers, this rising band has the sound of Soilwork, Meshuggah, Pantera, and Devin Townsend. For fans of those bands, this new sound will pound your ears.

Threat Signal’s intensity and ruthlessness are definitely worth checking out for your own fiendish metal cravings.
