"Aiming to set the bar high with a live behemoth of ampage, backed by a custom light show, SAINTS of DEATH are pushing forward to take on the biggest stages and crowds and win over fans who enjoy headbanging to such bands as Black Sabbath, Lamb of God, Overkill, Motorhead, and Pantera.."

Originally starting out as a Motorhead tribute band, Vancouver, BC’s SAINTS of DEATH is a four piece that has taken the reins to write original material with a double bassist attack and set themselves apart from the pack with their unique heavy sound of thrash, doom and hardcore metal.
Inspired by the Mexican folklore of Santa Muerte (Spanish for Holy Death), SAINTS of DEATH is fronted by vocalist and eight string bassist Twan Holliday, a giant standing nearly 7’ foot tall who can also be recognized for his acting credits in some well-known Hollywood movies and pro wrestling (credits below). Holliday is joined by four string bassist Juan Helluva, guitarist Ashley Blue and Christopher James on drums to complete this ferocious line up.
Taking their experiences from past bands (Snaggletooth, Strapping Young Lad, Farewell to Freeway, Tides of Honor & more), these veterans of the Vancouver debuted their self-titled EP on September 25, 2015 and hit the road on a series of follow up tours! Getting great reviews with both online sources as well as physical press the band quickly climbed to the top of the west coast local scene.
After almost 2 years of slumber, the band has a brand new line up and has finally recorded their first Full-Length Album (2nd release) entitled "Ascend to the throne"! The band embarked on it's first international tour of Mexico Nov 2018 and has since returned two more times to play multiple festivals with acts such as Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), ELO, Dave Evans (Ex - ACDC), Neil Turbin (Ex - Anthrax) and many more successful acts.
