Juggernaut (1984-1993, 2014-present) is a Speed Metal band from San Antonio, Texas, USA.
tarting off their debut recording, Baptism Under Fire (1986) under the membership of Harlan Glenn (vocals), Eddie Katilius (guitars), Scott Womack (bass) and Bobby Jarzombek (drums), Juggernaut's style touched on progressive technical thrash and speed metal. Critics often complained that the songs came across as disjointed, as if they were trying too hard to be different. After the release of the second album, Trouble Within (1987), featuring Steve Cooper on vocals, bassist Scott Womack recruited new members, including guitarist Denny Shoup and continued playing but not recording, except for a local compilation, until disbanding in 1993.
In 2014 Juggernaut reformed under the membership of Scott Womack (bass; ex-Kamakazi), Harlan Glenn (vocals; ex-Defiant, ex-Kamakazi), Eddie Katilus (guitars) and Miguel Morales (drums; Ancient Cross/ex-Jessikill) but have yet to record.
Footnote: Bobby Jarzombek would go on to bigger things, joining bands like Arch/Matheos, Demons & Wizards, Fates Warning, Halford, Painmuseum, Riot and Spastic Ink.
