Rampaging across the early '80's hardcore / mid-80's metal scenes, the MANIMALS were one of the first bands on the planet to merge hardcore punk with traditional metal. In 1988, at the peak of their popularity, they disappeared and were not seen again until a return in 1999 with the Horrorcore CD Their 30-year career was capped off by a final appearance at the 2012 Wacken Open Air in Germany. .
