Best Metal Band - 2008
In the very front row at Cross Examination's shows — whether there's a stage or not — you'll encounter fist-banging idiots. And the band would have it no other way, because those idiots up front are partying. As hard. As they can. Cross Examination inspires that kind of Awesome Partying via its "totally sweet" thrash metal. In a scene filled with boring style biters, Cross Exam pushes the creative envelope with hilarious YouTube videos of their exploits. While metal shows mean coat hangers hidden in flannel sleeves to some, to Cross Exam they equate to a good time. But take Advil before the show.
