  1. Battered

    Battered is a Norwegian thrash metal band fronted by then-former Einherjer members Frode Glesnes, Gerhard Storesund and Aksel Herløe in 2004. Since then they have only released one demo: ...Beyond Recognition and one album Battered. A new vocalist joined their band in 2005, Siggy Olaisen, and they recorded their self-titled debut album which was released February 27, 2006 in Norway and March 13 in the rest of Europe. The American date for the album Battered was April 4, 2006. Since the emergence of Battered into Thrash Metal, the term "Batter" has become a colloquialism for the use of recreational drugs, e.g. "Getting battered" and is commonly used with the term Burke, a reference to a lower subculture of burkies, who are known to get battered.
