The Shredderverse, a new musical project featuring five musicians known as The Shredderz and their manager Lydia, has been unleashed upon the world. After a chance encounter with The Devil Himself, the band made a deal for multi-dimensional superstardom backed by the power of darkness. However, their rocky journey was filled with misadventures, including a dangerous business relationship with Mr. D that landed them in his fiery lair. Following some deal-altering discussions, The Shredderz have been released and invite fans to join them on their mission for fame and fortune.
The Shredderz comprises Raz, Vincent, Weasel, Donny, and Nigel. They are marking their newfound freedom by opening their virtual world, The Shredderverse, with the release of their trademark single, “Shredderz,” featuring Testament’s Alex Skolnick, and sets the tone for the band’s debut album, due out this summer. In addition to Alex Skolnick, The Shredderz have enlisted other notable guest musicians, including Gary Holt (Slayer, Exodus), Derrick Green (Sepultura), Brandon Ellis (Black Dahlia Murder), George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob), Dan Lilker (Anthrax, Nuclear Assault), Taina Bergamaschi & Jessica DiFalchi (Crypta), Dave Davidson (Revocation), and Jessica Pimentel (Brujeria, Orange is the New Black).
