NEWS: MOD ClassicTK welcome us with “H8”!

When things didn’t go according to plan for a  M.O.D. Method of Destruction reunion, original members Tim McMurtrie (aka “The RIFFMASTER”) and Ken “ANGRY CORPSE” Ballone, the bands unmistakable legendary ferocious rhythm section took things into their own hands and created a new band. The result is Thrash band MOD ClassicTK who released the official music video for the title track of their last month released debut EP “H8” just a few hours ago. The EP sees Marc Rizzo (ex-Soulfly, ex-Ill Niño), Michael J Romeo of Symphony X fame and Thom Hazaert all adding guest appearances.


When talks of a 30 year reunion failed, Kenny and I decided we were going to do this ourselves. We found a sick, shredding-throat vocalist in Donny ‘The DRP’ Polinske, formally of SORE & PRIMER 55, and asked my old friend James Demaria of Heathen & TOXXIK to smash down some drums and here we are over 34 years later, Donny is also the owner of Force 5 Records which put out the band’s first EP H8.” says Tim McMurtrie.

He adds, “This EP had me turning the power switch back on, putting my mindset back into the thrash classic sound that we helped to originate in the underground scene back in the 80’s. The crossover genre of Punk, Metal & Hardcore is what we bring back to the table on this 5 song banger. Together with Kenny’s undeniable bass tone and my riffing we sound like we never stopped playing together. Adding Donny and James to this EP broke down all the barriers put in front of them. They crushed this thing and people are noticing what’s transpired. And with all the amazing tracks laced from the guest appearances of Michael J Romeo, Marc Rizzo and Thom Hazaert, this thing is truly what our true fans wanted since 87.
