Spare Thrash Metal / Co. Clare
SPARE formed in 2001 in Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland. With brothers Alan (vocals, guitar) and Peter Grouse (drums) joined by Barry Gleeson (guitar) and Don Flannery (bass), they soon became a very dedicated, innovative thrash metal band; who built up quite a fan base across Ireland.
Heavily influenced by the big names of 80s thrash; Slayer, Metallica, Sepultura and others, the band strove to make a difference in the relatively small Irish metal scene. In December 2005 their self financed five track, 30 minute EP, “Darkness Rising” was released.
