Video footage of DEATHRIDERS — the power/thrash metal band led by former ANTHRAX singer Neil Turbin — performing on July 21 at the iconic Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California can be seen below.

According to a press release, “at a recent DEATHRIDERS rehearsal at Hollywood’s Swing House Studios, the band sounded fast and heavy with strong old-school ‘Fistful Of Metal’ vocals which caught the attention of Steven Tyler (AEROSMITH, ‘American Idol’). In an even further testament to the ‘molten-metal’ performance given by the band even at a simple rehearsal, Tyler who had been listening outside the studio, came into the rehearsal room unannounced and stayed to watch the band perform their track ‘Give ‘Em Hell’ and was [seen] headbanging along the whole time.”

DEATHRIDERS is currently recording its full-length debut, “The Metal Beast Is Alive”, at Blue Pacific Studios in Los Angeles.
