Artillery is one of Europe’s earliest and most important exports of thrash metal, and the band’s contribution to the genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse an abrasive brutality with technicality and strong melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights. Listen to music and watch videos from their latest offering, Legions, now at metalblade.com/artillery.

Artillery formed in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark, in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Since then, the band has gone through numerous lineup shifts and released six studio offerings. The first period of Artillery’s existence gave the world the three classic albums – Fear Of Tomorrow, Terror Squad, and By Inheritance – featuring some of the finest moments of thrash metal Europe has ever put out.
