Universal Order of Armageddon


Universal Order of Armageddon

Universal Order of Armageddon was an American hardcore band, active in the early to mid 1990s. [ [http://www.stylusmagazine.com/articles/on_second_thought/universal-order-of-armageddon-universal-order-of-armageddon.htm Universal Order of Armageddon - Universal Order of Armageddon - On Second Thought - Stylus Magazine ] ] They formed in September 1992 and by early 1993, after quickly gaining a small but devoted following, they were recording and touring the East Coast. Known for their extreme short chaotic performances, sometimes resulting in complete destruction. Larry Livermore (founder of Lookout Records) was so blown away by their live performance that he stated in a magazine column that punk bands should take note of U.O.A. and start bringing this type of energy back into punk rock. Drummer Brooks once said, "Our live shows are like turning on a vacuum cleaner for like ten minutes". The guitarist and bass player would often leap off their amplifiers resulting in hurting themselves and their equipment. They went on to release records on indie labels such as Kill Rock Stars, Gravity, and Jade Tree. [ [http://bandtoband.com/index.php?Page=Search&BandId=321 BandToBand.com : Hot Rockin! ] ] They toured the United States several times in 1993 and 1994 in support of those releases before breaking up in late 1994.
