Short Bio:

Brothers Anton and Lewis Patzner of Judgement Day have been bringing their unique, high-energy brand of “string metal” to rabid audiences for over half a decade now. Their innovative style and shredding chops on violin and cello have earned them US and European tours with buzz bands like Mates of State and dredg and guest spots on the albums of heavy-weights from Bright Eyes to Slash. Add to the line-up the heavy-hitting, double-kick-pedaling drummer Jon Bush and an extensive array of vintage effects pedals and you’ve got a highly unique concoction that TheBayBridged.com calls “a distinctly progressive, experimental take on the guitar-less metal band, taking full advantage of the strengths of the strings while pushing the sound in unexpected directions.”

Press Clippings:

[For Peacocks / Pink Monsters]

“I loved what I heard. It’s a mix of progressive rock and classical with strings played through distortion pedals and other effects. It’s very fun.”
-Bob Boylon, NPR’s All Songs Considered

“a masterclass in the seemingly boundless possibilities of signal-processed, electronic string music”
-Strings Magazine

“An album that not only spans genres but does away with them altogether… The new school of classical-thrash has its poster boys.”
- Time Out Chicago

“Soundscapes that are simply stunning in their breadth and complexity.”
- Jersey Beat

“The dense, driving, cinematic music of Judgement Day balances their metal impulses with quiet, melodic passages for a sound that fits both concert halls and hard rock clubs.”
-Soma Magazine

“true artists with actual talent, discipline and drive”
-Reviewer Magazine

[General]

“a distinctly progressive, experimental take on the guitar-less metal band, taking full advantage of the strengths of the strings while pushing the sound in unexpected directions.”
-The Bay Bridged (read)

“Judgement Day has all the makings of a classic superhero: gritty back-story, freakish features, and extraordinary powers. And for a mutant that’s half-string quartet, half-power trio, this triple threat of violin, cello, and drums turns out to be mighty tough.”
- Dina Macabee, San Francisco Bay Guardian (read)

“These songs rock. Hard… It convinces you that youre running through a post-apocalyptic America with a horde of zombies ready to tear your entrails out.”

-www.punknews.org (read)

Press for Anton Patzner

“Bright Eyes’ ‘Four Winds’ belongs to violinist Anton Patzner, whose fiddling literally beats the band. No small feat, considering this jam rocks out like an apocalyptic hoe down.”
- Slant Magazine, Best of 2007, #9 song (read)

“If this bid for accessibility worked well enough on I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning, which debuted in the Billboard Top 10, it seems to work even better on “Four Winds”, thanks to Anton Patzner’s fierce violin work and Bright Eyes’ now permanent line-up.”
- Pitchfork Media (read)

“Anton Patzner shreds his fiddle like the Dirty Three’s Warren Ellis taking on Charlie Daniels.”
- Slant Magazine (read)
