From The 'Where Are They Now?' File: Ex-SINDROME Frontman TROY DIXLER

November 15, 2003

Straight from the "Where Are They Now?" file: Former SINDROME/DEVASTATION vocalist Troy Dixler has reinvented himself (photo) as the director of network and security solutions at Forsythe Technology, Inc., a leading national provider of technology infrastructure solutions to organizations across all industries.

SINDROME, whose lineup also included current SOIL guitarist Shaun Glass (ex-BROKEN HOPE) on bass, were as well known for their impressive brand of technical thrash as they were for continuously rejecting smaller-label offers in the hopes of securing the ever-elusive major record deal. Full-length MP3s of the songs that appeared on their "Into The Halls of Extermination" (1987) and "Vault of Inner Conscience" (1991) demos can be downloaded here.

Although Dixler's pre-SINDROME outfit, DEVASTATION (not to be confused with the Texan band of the same name who released several albums on the Combat label in the late '80s),were a lesser-known entity on the underground heavy metal scene, their influence was strong enough to result in the band's theme song, "Devastation", being chosen as one of the tracks covered by NAPALM DEATH on their recently completed tribute CD, "Leaders Not Followers 2" (due in early 2004).
