Posted in groove metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

It has been reported just about everywhere, that Frankie Sparcello (bass guitarist) of EXHORDER passed away on March 22, 2011. This is sad news for the entire Metal world. The loss of Frankie Sparcello only adds to the long list of Metal heros our Metal community has lost in the last two years alone. Metal Odyssey extends condolences to the family, friends, band mates and fans of Frankie Sparcello.

EXHORDER was scheduled to play at the Maryland Death Fest IX, which runs May 26th through May 29th, 2011, at the Sonar in Baltimore. EXHORDER originated from New Orleans, Louisiana, back in 1985. With two studio albums and one “split” live album in their catalog, EXHORDER has always maintained their loyal fan base, receiving the respect and brandishing influence among their peers, regardless of any periods of inactivity. Frankie Sparcello was the bassist for EXHORDER on their 1992 studio album The Law.

EXHORDER Discography On RoadRunner Records:

Slaughter In The Vatican – (1990)

The Law – (1992)

EXHORDER On Split, Restless Records:

Live Death – (1994)

Long Live The Metal Of Exhorder.

Rest In Peace, Frankie Sparcello.

MARYLAND DEATH FEST IX – Take a look at this lineup of Metal bands! Metal be thy name, there is enough Death Metal firepower at this Maryland Death Fest IX to make any fan of Extreme Metal drool for a month! From May 26th, thru May 29th, 2011, the Maryland Death Fest IX will be letting loose at Club Sonar in Baltimore, Maryland. (See links at bottom of post for more info on Maryland Death Fest IX and Club Sonar).

It’s an incredible Metal feat to corral such an impressive amount of Metal bands together for four days! I can only imagine the logistics involved. Metal as my witness, this vast lineup of bands kicks some serious Metal ass. With Metal Legends the likes of Coroner, Neurosis and Cathedral being on the same bill, the influence meter for younger bands will be exploding! Corrosion Of Conformity brings their diverse Metal history to this Death Fest IX and this lineup gets meatier by the Metal minute. Dutch Death Metal all-stars, Hail of Bullets, will be making a U.S. appearance here as well and they will certainly set forth their old school Death Metal proficiency upon the masses.

The legendary Voivod looks to add some potent Thrash with their progressive extremity. Thrash Metal warriors Nuclear Assault are back! Thrash Metal has their pioneering flag bearers at this Death Fest IX without argument. GHOST has been stirring up quite the Metal buzz the last several months, they should fit right in with this Death Metal party just fine. Their brand of old school, Classic Metal with their identities unknown, will only recruit more fans at this amazing event to the dark and evil gospel according to GHOST!
