ZAMBONI Changes Band Name To NUCLEAR HATRED, In Response To Trademark Infringement Claim
NJ/NY Crossover Thrashers ZAMBONI have changed their name to NUCLEAR HATRED, based on a notification from Frank J. Zamboni & Co, Inc. concerning trademark infringement. The band has repackaged their self-titled debut with the new name, which is now available for purchase and streaming at the link below:
The debut album features the bombastic bass and booming vocals of Chris Butera and the RAMONES-esque buzzsaw riffing guitars of Robert Orr.
The album is also available from CD Baby at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/nuclearhatred, and will be coming to Spotify, Amazon and iTunes in the very near future.

The band began recording their self-titled debut in 2014, with a myriad of issues and time constraints leading to drummer Robert Padilla’s unofficial departure and a plethora of delays. Two years later, the album is finally complete and ready to cause riots in the streets.
Due to the band’s longstanding drummer dilemmas, Orr and Butera have decided to go the route of Agoraphobic Nosebleed by both recording and playing live with programmed drums, proving once and for all that no band is more awful than the dreaded NUCLEAR HATRED. The band is already recording new material for their next release!
Hailing disrespectively from Brooklyn, NY and Wantage, NJ comes the worst band ever to attempt any form of music – NUCLEAR HATRED.
Formed in October 2010, the crossover two-piece began life in the ashes of Butera’s former thrash metal band Obliterator, whom Orr once saw open for Hexen, Mantic Ritual and Rattlehead at The Meatlocker in Montclair, NJ. Butera had a vision for something “so stupid and offensive it had to work.” Fusing a lethal cocktail with ingredients ranging from Carnivore and D.R.I. to NWA and the Wu Tang Clan,the original lineup consisted of Butera, Orr and drummer “Nuclear” Nathan Wolff, releasing the “Blood on the Ice” demo, the “Mother of the Resistance EP,” their live album “Live Stupidity” and finally, “Sucks! The Stupid EP” before Wolff left the band due to career and personal reasons.
The band would perform sporadically utilizing various live drummers from either other bands on the same bill or outright pulling random people out of the crowd before Butera would meet Roger Padilla at an Obituary concert in 2012. Padilla joined shortly after and the band continued playing occasional gigs that they would book themselves, mostly to “help out underground touring bands that were coming though the area and needed a show.” Among these bands were Texas’ Insinnerator and Terrorist, Boston’s Sonic Pulse, Sweden’s Six In Line and Alabama’s Cancerslug. NUCLEAR HATRED would also organize and run the annual “Thrash Bash BBQ” festival – which is in its fifth year currently.
