After just weeks of rehearsal the band had a set together and decided to start their reign of terror. They got an excellent response at their first shows and decided to enter the Battle Of The Bands competition at the Whittles Pub in Oldham, around 50 bands entered the competition and The Threat came out on top with a extreme performance in the final round this won them £1000 cash and some recording time. Since the start the band has been doing shows here, there and everywhere to get their name out there.
Now the band are set to release their debut "Tectonic Movement" very soon, four tracks of pure brutal metal with some jazz and funk thrown in. This will be available to buy online on Itunes and their website etc. The band are also set do do some acoustic shows around the U.K and should be recording some of their acoustic material in the future.
Keep your eyes open for The Threat in your area. These guys are intense.
