Virtually born to thrash, Diamond Plate were formed in 2004 in the Chicago suburb of Worth, Illinois. Though simply teens when the music group came collectively, the trio’s audio was rooted in the traditional thrash metal audio from the ’80s, borrowing from experts from the genre like Metallica and Anthrax to greatly help revive the audio decades later. Comprising guitarist Konrad Kupiec, vocalist and bassist Jon Macak, and drummer Jim Nicademus, Gemstone Plate slice their tooth with a set of self-released EPs, 2008’s Mountains of Madness and 2009’s Relativity, creating themselves as an up-and-coming pressure to become reckoned with in the thrash revival. This year 2010 they authorized on with Earache Information and began focus on their full-length debut. In addition they made a significant decision to expand their lineup, and in 2011 Mario Cianci became a member of Diamond Dish, adding another acoustic guitar with their shred assault. The recently minted quartet’s debut recording, Generation Why?, premiered that same 12 months.
