Hostile Takeover is a Heavy Metal band from Orange, California. The band was formed in 2006 by vocalist Jack Daniels and original lead (later rhythm) guitarist Irving Peter (I.P.) Freely. After launching a local search for musicians, the band was completed with the enlistment of new lead guitarist Homer Sexual, bass player Mike Hunt, and drummer Seymour Buttz.
Evolution Of The BandEdit
In 2007, by the time the band released a single (Hate Anthem) and an album (Fatal Distraction ), Freely would form a thrash metal project entitled Krunk Kings. Freely would eventually leave Hostile Takeover to concentrate on Krunk Kings and be replaced by James Beam right before the band would begin to see success, beginning with the release of their critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Thrashdance.
On August 11, 2008, the band announced the addition of vocalist Ron Stone and lead guitarist Tyler Isabel, respective replacements for Daniels (who left the band due to health concerns) and Sexual (who left due to a dispute with the remaining members of the band.) The band's self-titled album (the first with both Stone and Isabel) saw the beginning of a shift to Doom Metal. Daniels would later rejoin the band in September 2009 due to the departure of Stone, who left due to creative differences.
