Battleaxe (1983-1984): a Thrash Metal band from Sunderland, UK.


attleaxe first appeared on the 'Guardian Records' compilation album Roxcalibur, which was quickly followed by the single Burn This Town, in 1981. During their short career they maintained the line-up of Dave King (vocals), Steve Hardy (guitar), Brian Smith (bass) and Ian Thompson (drums; Ian McCormack would replace him after their first record). They recorded two albums for 'Music For Nations': Burn This Town (1983) and Power From The Universe (1984). Two albums of British influenced late 80s style Thrash that received little public interest. They had recorded an album titled Mean Machine in 1987 but it was never released. Rumors that they have reformed have thus far proven unsubstantiated. They were not heard from again.
