Brick by Brick Is A Metal Band??

From Troy / Albany in New York, Brick by Brick is a metal band for those who like their metal straight up from hell with monstrous aggression fully equipped to melt your stupid face off!

Brick by Brick - Metal, Punk Rock & Cannabis - San Diego Blather

Awhile ago, Brick by Brick caught my eye because one of my favorite San Diego venues is, Brick by Brick. It seems a good fit that they would play at Brick by Brick but when they came out to San Diego, they played at the Soda Bar. Anyways, because of their name and the fact Brick by Brick has their own Jack Daniels I shared their merch post on San Diego Blather’s Facebook account just for that reason. When I decided to include Brick by Brick as one of the non-local bands to share, I found out that the smoking hot  Jessica Pimentel from Orange is The New Black is featured in one of their videos! I had to include that pulverizing video in this post! So, enough of my blathering on, lets get started!

Band Information and Social Media

Bio from Brick by Brick Facebook page. 

” Brick By Brick has been around for a few years and is unrelenting. BxB is a blue collar hardcore/metal hybrid based out of Upstate NY. In 2014 Ray Mazzola (from Full Blown Chaos) was added as vocalist and immediately went into the studio. BxB released “This World, My Enemy” in 2015 through Eulogy Recordings. BxB has shared the stage and toured with many bands such as Anthrax, Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Biohazard, Agnostic Front, Madball, The Acacia Strain, Terror, Biohazard, Sick Of It All, and many many others from all over. BxB has appeared on many festivals, such as New England Metal Fest, Black n Blue Bowl, Tsunami Fest, Breast Fest, Motorcity Fest, Grownfest, ToughLoveFest, Florida Rules, Sound Of Revolution Fest and others as well. BxB has just returned from their first stint in Europe with Slapshot. A very successful tour. BxB has released five cd’s and three 7″ records as of 2017. The first 3 have sold out and are out of print with the former vocalist. New music is available through all major internet download sites and through international distribution via Eulogy Recordings and Fastbreak Records. Just after 4 days of “This World, My Enemy” being released, according to CMJ chart reports, it debuted at #13 across the US and reached #7. Not bad for a national debut! BxB has released “Thin The Herd” on Fastbreak Records in August of 2017 and is now getting to re-release it on vinyl with worldwide disto with the help of Fastbreak, Demons Run Amok and Pitchfork Clothing (our main endorser). bxB signed with Upstate Records and released Hive Mentality with overwhelmingly great reviews!”

Thank you!

Thank you so much for dropping by! I hope that all is well with you. Well, this concludes the Brick by Brick post! What did you think of them? Are you hoping that they come back to San Diego? I am and as cheesy as this sounds, I’m hoping that Brick by Brick will play at Brick by Brick.  Yeah, I know but I have no regrets as to how cheesy I can be. As you know, we’re still guests in the Covid-19 Gala but no reason lockdown has to be absolutely boring nor does it have to lonely. Please feel free to connect with San Diego Blather on Facebook and Instagram. I’m fucking serious! My kids are so sick of me chiming in on their conversations. Also, don’t forget to connect with Brick by Brick through their social media links. Thanks again for dropping by! Be safe and well always!
