OSKOREI, the San Francisco Bay Area metal band featuring Cody Souza the 17-year-old son of former EXODUS frontman Steve "Zetro" Souza on bass, is putting the finishing touches on a new three-song demo with producer Vincent Wojno (TESTAMENT, MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR). The tracks being recorded are "The Furious Horde", "Breaking the Shield Wall" and "The Final Litany".
OSKOREI which means "the furious horde" was founded in 2003 by band leader Blake Peterson and his drummer Corey Lee. At the time they were 16- and 17-year-old high school students (respectively) from Walnut Creek. By 2005, the band had its sound and direction well in hand.
A friend of the band's father grew up with a certain Bay Area thrash metal legend and he promised them to arrange a meeting with Steve "Zetro" Souza. Zetro really liked what he saw, but more importantly, was impressed with what he heard. He decided to take this band under his wing, to help them along, to do whatever he could with his knowledge, contacts, and motivation. At first he got them a couple of shows, then he got VIO-LENCE soundman Mike Anderson to help them record a self-titled demo. When the band started looking for a new bass player, Steve suggested his own son, Cody Souza. The band tried Cody out, and he earned his current spot with his own talent.
