Artist Summery: Brick Bath is an anger-fueled sonic assault. Their musical stylings could be compared to a combination of Pantera, Machine Head, Godsmack and Testament. Heavy, downtuned, fist to face, aggressive power-groove thrash metal featuring solid songwriting, stunning musicianship, and creative lyrics with undeniable hook laden grooves.

Band Bio: Since the bands inception in 1996, Brick Bath has been one of Southern Californias major contenders within the power-groove/thrash metal community. Formerly known as Epitaph, the band quickly gained public interest, which caught the attention of Chainsaw Records president, Woody Barber. The band worked out an agreement with Chainsaw Records and went directly into the studio to record their debut album entitled Scarred. Shortly after mixing the record, the label folded, leaving the band to wonder what was going to become of all their hard work. To keep the bands energy positive and not dwell on the demise of Chainsaw Records, they decided to go on tour. Playing to packed houses and enthusiastic audiences night after night, they co-headlined shows with such National acts as Stuck Mojo, Testament, Forbidden, Flotsam and Jetsam, Crowbar and Exodus.

After much soul searching during their road-weary days, the band opted for a facelift by changing their name to Brick Bath in 2000. Frustrated with producers and engineers that couldn?t find the sound that the band heard in their heads and wanted to achieve on tape, Brick Bath built their own recording studio. They recorded a fresh, new album that captures the agony and ecstasy of becoming the band they were meant to be. Pushing themselves to new limits and defining the Brick Bath sound. Self produced and engineered by guitarist Eric Meyer, they unveiled their stunning debut album, I Wont Live the Lie. This record is about hitting the breaking point when you don?t feel anything anymore. Whatever pushes you to that point, whether it?s anger, frustration, or depression, when those feelings take over, that is...I Won?t Live the Lie. explains guitarist, Eric Meyer.
Their debut release on Pavement/Crash Music (release date: March 12th, 2002) received rave reviews and features in such major publications as CMJ Loud Rock, BW&BK, Metal Maniacs, Metal Hammer, Roadie Crew, Ball Buster and Chaotic Critiques as well as many other well known metal websites and E-zines all over the world. In October of 2001, Brick Bath had two songs featured on the White Knuckles Extreme Sports DVD titled ?Slednecks Trilogy? which was released through Trinidad Entertainment and distributed by Image Entertainment.

Brick Bath proved they have marketability in college and commercial radio by ranking in the Top 5 Most Added to radio their first week out with 70 adds and showing chart activity on Album Networks Aggro Report, CMJ Loud Rock and FMQB. The band is also consistently in regular rotation on Music Choice and XM Satellite Radio.

The band headlined four successful US tours in 2002 and 2003 playing small to moderate size venues, which also included appearances at the Milwaukee Metalfest and the Abrasive Rock Festival in WA.
Pavement/Crash Music released Brick Bath?s second CD titled REBUILT in the US, Canada and Europe on March 25th, 2003. The band went back out on the road again for another US tour for a solid three months and tripled their audiences in many major markets.

The bands third full-length CD for Crash Music, titled American Currency (distributed in the US by Caroline) is set for release on August 9th, 2005 with a US/European tour to follow.
