MORDRED To Play Reunion Show In New York City

Reunited San Francisco Bay Area funk-metallers MORDRED have announced that they will be playing a live show in New York City to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their original lineup. The show, which is scheduled for April 22 at Don Hill's, will have the "explosive" support from New York City's own ARSON CLASS and SHOWGUN. A second gig in Brooklyn, New York has yet to be confirmed.

MORDRED's lineup for the reunion show will be as follows:

Scott Holderby - Vocals
Gannon Hall - Drums
Danny White - Guitar
Art Liboon - Bass
DJ Pause - DJ/keyboards
Jim Sanguinetti – Guitar

BNRMetal.com says: Initially part of the San Francisco thrash fraternity of the eighties, MORDRED starting making a name for themselves by incorporating funk influences to their sound, then quite a novelty. Most of "Fool's Game" (1989) is pretty much thrash (save one song), but the follow-up "In This Life" (1991) is where the new influences (aided by the rap-style turntables of Aaron Vaughn) really come to the fore, giving the album and band a very distinctive style. By the time of the "Vision" EP (1992), internal friction within the band developed, leading to the departure of longtime vocalist Scott Holderby. With new vocalist Paul Kimball, the band released "The Next Room" (1994), a slightly toned-down release compared to their previous efforts.
