Coming straight from the beaches of Venice, California, Excel mix punk and heavy metal. Excel cite influences from both genres, including Black Flag, the Germs, Slayer, and Cryptic Slaughter. The resulting sound would be the perfect surfing, skateboarding, or desert-driving soundtrack. Their contemporaries include Cryptic Slaughter, Suicidal Tendencies, and Megadeth. Excel are known for tagging venues, resulting in a myriad of logos. Excel broke up in 1995, but have been active since 2012. This is their first MDF appearance, after they cancelled in 2015.
