WESTFIELD MASSACRE's music could be described as a bridge between American Modern Metal and the more traditional European Metal. With aggressive growls, high soaring vocals melodies, impossibly fast drums, classically-inspired passages and harmonized guitar leads, the band claims influences as diverse as IRON MAIDEN, PANTERA, DREAM THEATER, R. WAGNER, SLIPKNOT, LAMB OF GOD, RACER X, W.A MOZART, GOJIRA, J.S BACH, HELLOWEEN, NICOLO PAGANINI and MEGADETH. The group aims to make their Orchestra-infused modern heavy metal accessible to fans of all music genres, something that grabs the audience upon the first listen.
Despite its short life, WESTFIELD MASSACRE has been featured with very praise by the most important heavy metal websites in the world, such as Revolver (US), Metal Hammer (Germany and Greece), Metal Injection (US), Roadie Crew (Brazil), Blabbermouth (US)Whiplash! (Brazil) and others. The band is set to begin its first string of dates in Southern California and Nevada beginning in January 2015. "
