Hailing from the hotbed of modern metal talent, Chicago's Diamond Plate are the hottest new band on the thrash scene. Taking influence from the likes of Exodus, Testament and Nuclear Assault, these young metallers are set to take America by storm with the release of their debut album, "Generation Why?"
A young but formidable... three-piece, DIAMOND PLATE made their debut in early 2008 with their ferocious and critically acclaimed, “Mountains of Madness” E.P. At the time, the average age of this three-piece was a mere 15 years old! Thanks to distribution from an indie label and self-promotion through the internet, the young three-piece from Chicago soon began to make a powerful international presence.
After years of writing and playing live as a three piece, it wasn't until DIAMOND PLATE’s deal with Earache that they considered adding another guitar player to help enhance their live show. Mario Cianci officially joined the band in early 2011, and makes his live debut with DIAMOND PLATE in summer 2011.
Now their full debut is about to be released. Produced by Neil Kernon (Cannibal Corpse, Queensryche, Nile), this ferocious offering is sure to cement their place amongst the elite of modern thrash!
