BeowülfPosted: July 19, 2009
Beowülf is a crossover thrash metal band formed in Venice, California in 1981 by Michael Alvarado, Dale Henderson, Mike Jensen and Paul Yamada. The group never gained a large mainstream success, but is considered one of the first bands that defined the “Venice Scene” in the 1980s, along with Suicidal Tendencies, Neighborhood Watch, No Mercy, Excel and Uncle Slam, who all played a mix of skate punk, hardcore, heavy metal and thrash. So far, Beowülf has released five studio albums. They split up in 1995, but reformed in 2000.
Next show: August 19, 8:00 p.m. @ The Blue Monkey in Hollywood.
