Sentinel Beast Recording New Album

Reunited '80s Sacramento, California thrash band SENTINEL BEAST has issued the following update:

"SENTINEL BEAST is currently in the studio recording our second album. We hope to have this album finished by April, showcasing our European tour that month."

SENTINEL BEAST was formed in Sacramento in 1984 by Debbie Gunn, Mike Spencer (bass), and Scott Awes (drums). During this time, the axes were played by Greg Williams and Jerry Fraiser, later to be replaced by Barry Fischel and Mark Koyasako. Discovered by Kerry King of SLAYER, the band recorded and released the influential "Depths of Death" album, on Metal Blade Records, in 1986 and the band later went on to open shows for the likes of SLAYER, EXODUS, MEGADETH, MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND, and others. The band broke up when Mike Spencer joined FLOTSAM AND JETSAM as the replacement for Jason Newsted when the latter left for METALLICA. Debbie Gunn departed for Chicago shortly after to front ZNOWHITE, then relocated to Europe to join the all-female thrash pioneers, ICE AGE.

SENTINEL BEAST has returned with the belting vocals of Debbie Gunn, Kenny Eckhart and Dana Lindstrom on guitars, Nic Atomica X on bass, and the fresh drum attacks of Scott Fuller.

Wow Sentinel Beast are reunited!?! That's awesome! Debbie Gunn is such a great vocalist, I listened to both SB and Znowhite for months without realizing she was a chick haha. I like Znowhite and Ice Age better than Sentinel Beast but hey I can hardly complain can I.
