Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth and Hades guitarist Dan Lorenzo form The Cursed
In the Eighties, many New Jersey–based metalheads witnessed the emergence of two bands that rocketed out of the metal underground, Overkill and Hades. Now, the leaders of each band—Overkill singer Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth and Hades guitarist Dan Lorenzo—have joined forces in a new band, The Cursed, who are readying the release of their debut full-length, Room Full of Sinners, on May 22 via the Screaming Ferret label.
Along with bassist Job the Raver and drummer Mike Cristi, the group spent much of the spring and summer of 2006 writing and rehearsing new material. “Leven Als God in Frankrijk” brings to mind vintage Motorhead, while the album’s first single, “Evil, in the Bag,” wouldn’t sound out of place on one of Black Sabbath’s early Seventies classic albums.
