Artist Biography by

Over the course of their relatively secret run through the 1990s, Bayonne, NJ's Balistik Kick released a trio of albums featuring melodic, American-styled power metal along the lines of Agent Steel and Vicious Rumors. Featuring vocalist Joe Adrignola, guitarist Mike Marino, bassist Vinnie Valdes, and drummer Mike Paradine, the band released its eponymous debut in 1993, which after a long pause was eventually followed by 1997's Warhead and 1999's Destroy. Unfortunately, poor distribution from a set of tiny independent record labels guaranteed that the albums vanished without a trace, eventually leading Balistik Kick to disband at the start of the new millennium.
