New Jersey birthed heavy metal in the United States in the early 1980’s and it all started in a stall in the Route 18 Flea Market with Jonny Z and Marsha Z, where they sold rare records and Imported vinyl, picture discs and rock rags from around the world. This tiny little record shop soon became infamous for being the only place stateside where you could find the heaviest and hardest music from the farthest reaches and your own backyard.

Rock N Roll Heaven became the Metal mecca and anyone interested in this new underground wave of music known as “Heavy Metal” needed to pilgrimage to Rock N Roll Heaven at the flea market the only place to buy pins, patches, demos, and more it was the hub for news to find out what was happening anywhere in Metal. The shop owners began throwing concerts in local skate rinks and clubs, because no one else would put together a metal line-up.

Rock N Roll Heaven became a second home, only home for many, for one historical group the original Fans of Metal – aptly named The Old Bridge Metal Militia, a group of working class, hell raising teens from blue collar Old Bridge, NJ.

These were the most loyal group of fans any band has ever had – Metallica, Slayer, Raven, and many more young fledgling soon to be metal titans made their way into the hearts, homes and refrigerators of the OBMM before anyone even knew they existed and it was the unity of Rock N Roll Heaven and the OBMM that birthed Megaforce records and essentially Thrash as we know it today.

Megaforce went on to put out Metallica’s first 2 albums and made way for Testament, Overkill and paved the way for CraZed Management the Zazula’s management firm that nurtured Anthrax for 13 years and Ministry in the height of their fame plus many, many more.

After many years, OBMM & the Zazula’s are teaming up once again. Holding this fundraiser concert for the victims of Superstorm Sandy, Metal is now giving back to the community.

ED TRUNK (THAT METAL SHOW) will perform Master of Ceremonies duties with special guest hosts and an all-star jam to be announced.  With a now confirmed line-up of ANVIL, RAVEN, THE RODS and LORDS OF MERCY this evening is poised for a metal pounders delight.

ROCK N’ ROLL HEAVEN and OLD BRIDGE METAL MILITIA ask all attendees to bring canned goods or non-perishable food items for a food drive which will benefit local area soup kitchens and shelters.to thrash metal.

This is an event to benefit the victims of Superstorm Sandy, which wreaked havoc on the Jersey Shore and on the lives of its residents. Superstorm Sandy has left dozens dead and thousands homeless – making it the worst storm in the region’s history. This is a 100% non-profit event.

Prominent in the early Extreme Metal underground as one of the first Death Metal bands, they are also one of the most influential artists alongside Death and Possessed.

TO HUMANS Featuring JEREMY LOMBARDO Releases EP

(Apple Valley, CA) – TO HUMANS, a new alternative rock project featuring drummer Jeremy Lombardo (son of world-famous metal drummer Dave Lombardo), released a brand new self-titled 5-track EP. It is available via their official Bandcamp page. TO HUMANS also features lyricist/vocalist/guitarist Danny Toranzo and bassist Ace Anderson.

TO HUMANS: New Alternative Project Featuring Jeremy Lombardo Releases New Self-Titled EP

Drummer Jeremy Lombardo states,

“When we perform, we’re definitely not your average indie rock band. We definitely all have a connection to each other when we perform live. There’s a certain spirit that we all feel and we try our hardest to impress and share that emotion and spirit that we feel with our audiences.”

Jeremy adds,

“The new EP is essentially a compilation of some of our earlier songs that the band wrote a long time ago, mixed with a couple newer songs that we wrote shortly before entering the studio. Most of our songs start as a freeform jam fused with Danny’s ideas that eventually morph into what you’ll hear on the EP.”

TO HUMANS formed in 2011. They have performed several shows at venues including the legendary Whisky A Go Go, The Roxy, The Viper Room, The Wire, and more. The band cites Portugal the Man, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Circa Survive, Arctic Monkeys and others as influences.

TO HUMANS will be performing at two shows in California this April.
4/12 Upland, CA @ The Wire
4/27 Hollywood, CA @ Amplyfi
