AGGRESSIVE DISORDER is a blistering power metal trio that hails from Philadelphia, PA. Proudly waving the flag of "old school" heavy metal, in the vein of Testament, Pro-Pain, Motorhead and the like. Aggressive, uncompromising, driven, intense and diverse, have been used to describe AGGRESSIVE DISORDER's sound. The bands ferociously tight and rabidly energetic live shows have secured AGGRESSIVE DISORDER as a new breed of the old school.
In 2003 Vocalist/Guitarist Bruce Phillips and Drummer Chris Teot folded their project Instigation. As the material they were currently writing was taking a extreme turn. "The new material we were writing at the time was far from what we did with Instigation" stated Bruce in various interviews. With the disbanding of Instigation, the evolution to AGGRESSIVE DISORDER was complete.
In August 2004 the band recorded a two track demo. This demo was produced to plant the seeds of what was to come. Those tracks "Fair Game" and "Reflection" were released in early 2005. The demo was distributed heavily by management and the band. Gaining the band heavy press, and strong radio rotation.
Riding the wave of support. The band entered the studio in March '05 to cut demos. Those demos promptly lead to the band heading back into the studio to record their first full-length album "Aggression Is A State Of Mind". "We just don't want any filler on this album" stated Drummer Chris Teot during the sessions. Needless to say. The two year writing process paid off.
During the sessions the band recruited long time friend Joe Bardi to fill the Bass position. From June to September the band pounded out what would become their debut album. Reaction from fans and press have been nothing less than supportive, as the band quickly sold out the initial pressing of the release.
Fast forward to 2007. As the band begins to write material for their next album, "Aggression Is A State Of Mind" will once again see a new life. In January the album will be re-issued and will also feature five demo tracks taken from the March '05 sessions. One of those demo tracks will be a previously unreleased track "Into The Future". The CD release will be available from the bands web site, as well as in digital formats.
"We all know people want to have it on demand" Bruce comments "So working with Management, we're making the release available as a CD or as a download option as well".
Look for AGGRESSIVE DISORDER's follow up album in late 2008.
