Self-admitted Heavy Metal and Comics fanatics and fronted by U.S. born singer Anthony Stephen, FRENZY has successfully created a fresh approach to the traditional style accompanied by great lyrics focused on comic books and graphic novels such as Daredevil, From Hell, The Killing Joke, Silver Surfer, X-Men, and others. This band truly is the perfect union of Heavy Metal and Comics, combining the “larger than life” and epic aspects of Heavy Metal with those of the Comic Book classics, as well as the urban culture common to both worlds. Those elements together form the FRENZY universe.
The graphic artwork of Mike Mora (Heavy Metal Magazine) and Javier Pastor (Evil Rite) on Blind Justice (complete with 16-page booklet in comic book style) is the perfect match for this music, resulting in a holistic listening experience.

"If your pulse quickens when you hear albums like Back for the Attack, Thunder in the East, or Love you to Pieces, then Blind Justice is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and stir your imagination.

"There's something true and honest about Frenzy's heavy metal that really gets through to me. It doesn't sound like they bent over backwards to clone the sound and style of early 80's metal...it just comes naturally to them."

"This is 80s to the bone, with songs spending about half the time in a double bass frenzy of the fastest that Judas Priest and Dokken had to offer, with the other half being more traditional mid paced stuff akin to Accept or Iron Maiden. Energetic and raucous."
- Lair of the Bastard
