The Scrap Iron Pickers were an all-star progressive metal trio, based in the Charleston area, who released one killer CD and had many memorable live shows. Jason “Roadblock” Robinson anchored the band on bass. John Sizemore provided pyrotechnics with his guitar. Keeping the beat on drums was none other than Matt Wolfe, the drummer for the legendary West Virginia metal band, Byzantine.
The band is not currently performing, but Empty Glass Records is mulling over a reissue project that may include previously unreleased material. Byzantine will be performing Saturday night, May 30, at The Monkey Barrel, to promote their epic new album, “To Release Is To Resolve.”
These two songs were captured on the first night of Mission Coalition, a two-day metal show with tons of great bands that was organized by Roadblock in September, 2011. We just rediscovered the footage and will be bringing you more lost classics from that weekend in future episodes of The RFC MINI SHOW.
