Seizure is a Thrash Metal band with elements from Death and Black Metal. Composed of James Esguerra, who also plays drums for Mass Hypnosia, Chester Ramos who mainly plays drums for Power Abuse among other bands, Dom Estrella and JB Caparas who both previously played in a Doom/Sludge act. Formed in mid-2019 at the Punk dominated province of Bulacan, these maniacs founded the band to establish something darker, aggressive, grittier, relentless, and fast to come out in the vast lands of Bulacan.
Drawing inspiration from Teutonic, Bay area, Brazilian and Canadian thrash mixed with old school death metal and early black metal, d-beat, hardcore punk and NWOBHM. Seizure fused various extreme genres to forge their own signature thrash metal sound to pierce through the already crowded Philippine Metal scene.
Tackling more realistic topic and avoiding (not completely) cliche metal themes talking about the occult, anti religion, wizards and dragons, gore, sex ,drugs and alcohol and talking about rock and roll/metal itself. Not that we don’t like it, but in order to be unique, one must be different. Instead opting for lyrical themes about society, political, reality, history, personal / life experiences, violence and social relevance, war, destruction, doom and misery. Seizure delves into the deep realms of reality and social decay.
