The Accused

Formed in 1981 in Oak Harbor, Washington by bassist Chibon Batterman, Dana Collins and guitarist Tom Niemeyer. John Dahlin was the vocalist from 1983-1984, when the addition of Blaine Cook (frontman of Seattle hardcore punk group The Fartz) caused the band to progress towards a more heavy metal-based sound. The band dubbed their style, distinguished by Blaine's unusual choking-sound vocals, buzzsaw guitars, dark metallic riffs, and rapid-fire drumming, Splatter Rock, and recorded five full-length albums between their inception and 1990s hiatus.

Formed in 1981 in Oak Harbor, Washington by bassist Chibon Batterman, Dana Collins and guitarist Tom Niemeyer. John Dahlin was the vocalist from 1983-1984, when the addition of Blaine Cook (frontman of Seattle hardcore punk group The Fartz) caused the band to progress towards a more heavy metal-based sound. The band dubbed their style, distinguished by Blaine's unusual choking-sound vocals, buzzsaw guitars, dark metallic riffs, and rapid-fire drumming, Splatter Rock, and recorded five full-length albums between their inception and 1990s hiatus. The Accused regrouped in 2003, playing live shows in the Seattle area, and then recorded the album Oh, Martha! . This comeback record landed on Revolver magazine's Top Ten albums of the year and Writer's Lists from Metal Maniacs magazine. However, that line-up was short-lived. In 2005 3 members left and formed another band , Toe Tag. . Current collectors are seeing copies of these rare/out-of-print U.S. made CD's fetch prices upwards of $400.00 to $500.00 each on popular auction website eBay. The Accused is considered to be an important progenitor of the crossover style that bridged the gap between thrashcore and thrash metal, later influencing grindcore and some crust punk bands. « hide
