Powermad  


Powermad was one of the bands that signed on to Combat Records for their so-called Bootcamp Series, releasing an EP that managed to win them a major label contract, rare for thrash metal bands at that time. The band gained some notoriety by having a bit part in the David Lynch movie "Wild At Heart" (there is a scene with them performing their song "Slaughterhouse"). Anyway, Absolute Power is an decent enough album, though they score points here since they actually have a song entitled "B.N.R."! By the late eighties they were done, but after a successful reunion appearance in Germany in 2007, they decided to put the band back together. With much-respected drummer Dirk Verbeuren hooking up with the band, they now hope to record in late 2011.
