THEM was originally formed in 2008 by singer Troy Norr as "Them - The King Diamond Tribute" with 3 of the 5 band members coming directly from the late 80's thrash metal band "Coldsteel".
A band whose sole purpose was to perform songs from King Diamond and Mercyful Fate. This tribute band had performed in the NY Tri-State area as well as Ohio and Michigan. Some performances included Mike Wead From King Diamond as well as Hal Patino (formerly of King Diamond).
After a 3.5 year run, THEM was converted into an all original outfit with all new band members stemming from Symphony X, Suffocation, Lanfear, Sylencer and set out to write the debut concept album "Sweet Hollow".
THEM's debut concept album, "Sweet Hollow," chronicles the bizarre journey of a man caught between unfortunate circumstance and unspeakable evil.
