Shattered Metal band out of Tampa, Florida area and founded in 2014 is very hard to describe. The type of metal they perform is a mix of Hardcore, Thrash, Death Metal and a old school yet has a new and unique twist. Everyone in the band are veteran musicians and bring that special dynamics to the band that makes us so unique.
their first cd called “PRIDE” was released October 4th 2017 which was delayed from a setback of losing members, and having to copyright their songs & band name before completion. Shattered has shared the stage with many national acts and looking for our big break in the industry. Not signed with a record label at the moment, you can find their Music on most media sites and can purchase in their web store.
