Extinction A.D., comprised of frontman Rick Jimenez and ex-This Is Hell bandmates, delivers a fresh, energetic thrash attack, showing true love for the early greats, especially old Testament and Metallica, while dazzling with 2015 power and precision.

Faithkiller was recorded and mixed by Brett Romnes (I Am the Avalanche, Anthony Raneri), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Noisem).

Extinction A.D., live:
Aug 22 - Amityville, NY @ Revolution w/ Suffocation
Aug 26 - Brooklyn, NY @ The Acheron
Aug 28 - Atlantic City, NJ @ Boneyard 

"A blend of early '90s Slayer and Sepultura filtered through a prism of Kill 'Em All. Check out Extinction A.D. if you're in the mood for groovy thrash that explodes with modern energy."

"A 21st-century powerhouse upgrade of Eighties thrash... The best aspects of early Metallica and Testament."
–Guitar World

"Thrashterpiece... Who does Extinction A.D. think they are just hogging all the good riffs like this for themselves?"
–Metal Injection

"Extinction A.D. may very well write the best Slayer riffs that Jeff Hanneman never got around to writing but they're more than a simple re-thrash band... If thrash is a machine gun firing wildly in all directions, Extinction A.D. is a sniper with a laser sight."

"Rick Jimenez is the kind of guy that's in this for life... On Extinction A.D.'s debut full-length, Faithkiller, the sound has gotten thrashier but no less pummeling than Jimenez's past two decades of music creation, only now he's the one speaking out against injustice and corruption."
