Interview with Shattered
Updated: Mar 3, 2020
Shattered was founded by Tony Pettry in 2014 and obtained the copyright on the band name. The band had its ups and downs getting our cd recorded and released named "PRIDE" which has been released on Oct. 04th, 2017. Its hard to define the style of metal we play because of so many influences from the 80's to current. Our website launched in 2016 to find more information. WWW.SHATTERED727.COM. We are located in the Tampa Bay Area and honored to be in such a great metal scene which also is the death metal capital of the world. Shattered has been sponsored by Sinister Guitar Picks and Fireball Whiskey. We stay humble and appreciate all the support and our fans because we are nothing without you.
