They're this badass thrash
band that had some great stuff back in the 80s. You see, they started out in Austin
and basically did NWOBHM
covers before recording the greatest thrash album known to man, Energetic Disassembly. After this, their guitarist Billy White left because he was a sissy and didn't like metal. Their singer Jason McMaster also left to join some glam
band called Dangerous Toys
or whatever. They got replaced by new guys, like Ron Jarzombek and Alan Tecchio in time to record the greatest prog album known to man, Control and Resistance. After this, Jarzombek got hand problems
and Tecchio left, so Watchtower sort of disbanded.
They're doing shows again, but we've been waiting for a third album since 1989 :/
Jim: Hey man, check this band out, they're crazy.
Bob: WHOA, who is this?
Jim: Oh, they're called Watchtower. Pretty cool, huh?
Bob: Hell yeah, where can I get some of their CD's?
Poser: MoAr LyKe CrOtCh-ToWeR, aMiRiTe
