This locally forged supergroup—which includes former members of Mellow Bravo, Township, Bang Camaro, the Dirty Truckers and Cult 45—raged onto the metal scene last year as a force to be reckoned with. The quartet scored Metal Artist of the Year at the most recent Boston Music Awards, and they bludgeoned the competition with a dark horse win at the 2016 Rock & Roll Rumble, playing a finals set so fierce that drummer Dave Jarvis destroyed his bass drum. Heavy metal is the head that wears the crown.
