Cut Throat was formed in 1997 by a group of talented, hard-working musicians. Tired of being told what type of music they should play, Cut Throat decided to go against the pervasive Grunge grain to play the hard rock music they love. Their defiance has paid off. After only a short time, they are taking hard rock and metal to a new generation. This all-original band has developed a strong local following, despite the recent lethargy of the L.A. music scene, by delivering it's signature hard-hitting, energetic live performances. With the release of their self-titled, debut CD, along with a strong internet presence, Cut Throat has sparked international attention from both fans and magazines, fanzines, labels, and music-based websites. Cut Throat's current line-up is led by vocalist Sean Okin, whose raw vocal ability contributes to the band's distinctive sound. The guitar team of Darwin DeVitis and Ken Snyder each bring his own unique guitar style to this hard-driving mix: speedy, yet melodic with a heavy twist. Bassist John Anderson and drummer Ramsay Bisharah provide the solid, rhythmic foundation on which the music is built. Cut Throat has shared the stage with some of rock's heaviest hitters, including Yngwie Malmsteen, Warrant, Sebastian Bach, Slaughter, W.A.S.P., Tesla, L.A. Guns, Bullet Boys, Love/Hate, Flotsam and Jetsam, Babylon A.D., and Gilby Clark. Even amongst such proven acts, Cut Throat's talents have not escaped the rock media. The Unscene, a web site dedicated to promoting up-and-coming unsigned bands, named Cut Throat Band of the Month in August 1999. Rock City News awarded the band 'Best Metal Band' in Los Angeles, also in 1999. Cut Throat has what it takes to bring hard rock to a scene hungry for music that is loud, heavy, and straight from the gut.
