Death First

Death-First-7-3 Even though with a name like Death First it may seem like it, this band is more than just metal. Or at least that’s what they’d have you believe. Based out of Buckley, Death First has listed influences as far ranging as Dylan, Beethoven and Radiohead, but when it comes right down to it these five dudes shred â€" there’s no way to deny it.

Check out the band’s contribution to 104.9FM the Funky Monkey’s From the Monkey’s Garage Vol. 2 â€" which features “Bleed the King” â€" one intense, guitar driven burner that seems to have everything a song could possibly need to make agro dudes and construction workers everywhere bow their heads in appreciation.

Before you blow out your eardrums on the Fourth of July, check out Death First the night before at Hell’s Kitchen.
