Origin: Chicago, IL, USA
Genres: Progressive Metal, Thrash Metal


Chicago's Aftermath made some noise in their early days with an ultra-speedy crossover style as heard on their 1987 demo Killing The Future. Some years later they mutated into a more technical thrash metal act and set about recording their debut album, Eyes Of Tomorrow. Scheduled for a 1990 release, the band unfortunately signed to Big Chief Records just before that label's demise, forcing a four-year delay in release that resulted in the band missing the thrash boom and losing their momentum, though in actuality Eyes is an accomplished album, a lost technical thrash gem somewhat in the mold of Anacrusis. A few years later came another shift in direction to a more prog/alternative band, and more legal problems, this time being involved in a court case with none other than Dr. Dre over the use of the name Aftermath. Dre won that case, and the band eventually changed name to Mother God Moviestar, releasing an album in 1998. The band went quiet after that, until 2014, when the original lineup came back together to play some shows. Eyes Of Tomorrow got a re-release on the cult Shadow Kingdom label, and the Killing The Future demo is finally getting a CD release in October 2015.
