What better way to celebrate their 30th Band anniversary as by diving deep into their own history, spanning three decades of an incomparable Metal career – from the humble beginnings in the early 1980s with their debut attempt »Prayers of Steel« and back then calling themselves AVENGER, through the flourishing 90s that peaked in their 1996 classic approach »Lingua Mortis«, all the way to the most recent years, which also featured RAGE coming in third at the “Bundesvision Songcontest” in 2009, carving a quarter of a century in stone even more so!..
Bill Kelliher is known as the rock-solid foundation of a band known for its constant reinvention and refusal to bow to expectations. Bill's roots in hardcore punk and thrash metal, combined with years of putting passion to work, forged a signature sound that would ultimately become the backbone of the sludgy, psychedelic and progressive riffs that are Mastodon.
