Extinction A.D. takes its cues from legends like Slayer and Testament, injecting those classic sounds with futuristic chops and a legit reverence for the art form.

The band laid down the law in 2015 with debut full-length Faithkiller on Good Fight Music, with lyrics decrying CIA coverups and media fear-mongering, and "the best Slayer riffs that Jeff Hanneman never got around to writing," in the words of MetalSucks.

"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

"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."
