History

Three Germans and an Italian diehard thrasher get together in 1992 and refuse to believe for a second that thrash metal is passe. Following David Büttner's departure from the fold, the Bavarians' guitarist and backing singer takes over the microphone taking the band even more into thrash territory. The Megadeth influences are overt. The band has two MCDs: Airraid and Artful Killing.

Reviews

ARMISTICE - HOT ON THE TRAIL - BLACK ARROW
The follow up to the Airraid promo CD, the 'German thrash metal Attack' of Armistice is back, via a deal with Black Arrow Production, with a full length which incorporates the compositions present on that aforementioned promo. Right from album opener Airraid Siren the band establishes its thrash credentials with a track very reminiscent of the Kill 'em All-era Metallica albeit with some punkish vocals here and there. The band slows down with a Black Sabbath cover (why?), but the thrash of Metallica/Megadeth/Holy Terror is Armistice's bread and butter. Complimented by a good sound, the quartet's tight arrangements should only endear them to fans of the genre. - Ali "The Metallian"
