Die Happy  

Die Happy was formed when the core of the Christian speed metal band Vengeance Rising (all but vocalist Roger Martinez) departed, in order to explore a different musical direction. Die Happy has an 80's thrash/power metal feel to it, with a vocalist that might remind one of Jag Panzer's Harry Conklin, and in fact at times the band itself sounds vaguely similar to JP circa Ample Destruction. Apparently their followup strayed farther from their original thrash roots, incorporating some funk/groove influences to their sound.
