Circle of Thorns
Circle of Thorns is a NEW 6 piece Metal/Alternative Metal /Hard Rock band from New York. Virtuoso drummer extraordinaire A.J Pero from Twisted Sister is the drummer for Circle of Thorns. Circle of Thorns also features amazing guitar virtuoso Steve Irons (aka Steve Mironovich). Steve Irons is also the singer as well as the songwriter for the band. Mike Dunleavy is also on 7 string guitar & backing vocals. Circle of Thorns also has two incredible bass players Jimi Brix & Sean Eganz. The sound is gloomy, dark, heavy & metallic. Review from Taste Of Khaos internet magazine blog - .O.k., I'm not gonna lie, what really first caught my eye when I heard and saw COT's page, was A.J. Pero from Twisted Sister, holy shit! Man did I love Twisted Sister! A.J. Pero is one bad ass drummer who has been on the Metal scene for some time, but then again Steve Irons is one bad ass guitar player who has also been on the Metal scene for some time...combine their talents with two shreddin bass players , and you have one hell of a combination! And make no mistake although some of COT's members have been on the Metal scene a while COT's sound is anything BUT dated!!
