Vio-lence was formed under the name Death Penalty in 1985. They quickly
changed their name to Violence, and then the two-tiered logo with hyphen
forced the name change to its permanent form. The original lineup was
Jerry Birr on vocals, Phil Demmel and Troy Fua on guitars, Eddie Billy
(brother of Testament's Chuck Billy) on bass, and Perry Strickland on
drums. This lineup appeared on the Eastern Front (Live at Ruthies) 2LP
compilation in 1985 with the song "Gutterslut". Eddie Billy left soon
and was replaced by Dean Dell, and this lineup recorded a rehearsal tape
that was released as a demo.
Jerry Birr (later to appear in Enemy Mind) was replaced by Sean Killian
on vocals, and the band recorded their first official demo, before Troy
Fua left and was replaced by Forbidden Evil founding member Robb Flynn
in early 1987.
The band re-recorded all the songs on their first demo for a second one,
in 1988, with minor lyrical changes, and new song titles, for their
\"Mechanic Records demo\" in 1988. This label released their debut,
Eternal Nightmare, later that year. A tour with Testament and Sanctuary
followed, and then another tour with Voi Vod, followed by a second
album, Oppressing the Masses, in 1990.
One track, Torture Tactics, was deleted off the album due to its
offensive lyrical content, but then was released as the title track of a
1991 EP. Another tour, this time with Defiance, followed. The third
album, Nothing to Gain, was recorded in 1991 but constant record label
problems delayed its release.
At this point, Robb Flynn left to form Machine Head, and was replaced by
Ray Vegas on guitar, and Perry Strickland was replaced by Mark
Hernandez on drums. A final demo was recorded in 1993, before the band
Vio-lence reunited for Thrash of the Titans, a benefit for Chuck Billy
and Chuck Schuldiner, in August 2001. The lineup of Killian, Demmel,
Vegas, Dell, and Strickland played a 64 minute gig, which led to further
shows in the Bay Area. Ray Vegas was replaced by a returning Troy Fua,
and for one gig, Phil Demmel, who was unable to attend, was replaced by
Steve Schmidt. Phil also helped out Machine Head as a second guitarist
for a few gigs, with Machine Head bassist Adam Duce returning the favour
for a gig at Dean Dell's wedding in 2002!
The band has officially split up, with Phil Demmel concentrating exclusively on Machine Head.
