Atrophy (1988-1990, 2015-present) is a Thrash Metal band from Arizona, USA.
itting in line with the sounds and styles of Exodus and Forbidden, Atrophy would feature Brian Zimmerman (vocals), Chris Lykins (guitar), Rick Skowron (guitar), James Gulotta (bass) and Tim Kelly (drums) to release Socialized Hate (1988) and Violent By Nature (1990), the second lacking the spark of the first but nonetheless coming across as more varied. The band split up soon after, however. But in 2002 Skowron, Gulotta and Kelly would re-unite as Head Circus. The band reformed in 2015 but, at time of writing, has yet to release.
