directory of local bands
Frosty on Drums, Carl Westwood on Bass, Craig Bate on Guitar and Lee Foster on Vocals. After numerous gigs and making the semi finals in the west midlands battle of the bands competition the pressure became to much Carl and he left in June 2004. Fortunately another band called Idlerage had just lost there drummer, and were having problems replacing him so Richard Sewell joined the band to help out until a replacement was found. Rich was the guitarist and vocalist for Idlerage and took to the Bass like egg to flour!! He has enjoyed it so much Rich became a permanent member of the Zombie line up. In November 2007 Craig made his fairwell appearance on stage at JBs Dudley and has since been replaced by friend of the band, John Osborne on Guitar.

KILLING FIELDS Bristol City FM Album Review 2007: Something nasty is stiring in the suburban sprawl of the West Midlands, the dead have risen and they have brought electric guitars. Zombie Xtras are perhaps one of the most intresting new band from the UK I have encountered this year. Using the doomy, shouty riffing of the likes of Type-O-Negative, Rage Against The Machine and Danzig as their starting point they have honed their sound into a powerful blend of killer riffs, blugeoning beats and fantastic songsmithing that just demands to be heard. Their new self finaced mini album 'Killing Fields' has to be THE unsigned metal release of the year so far. This band deserve to be huge, check em out and help them get that way
