Madball was founded in 1988 and featured most of Agnostic Front’s members. Madball consisted of Agnostic Front’s vocalist Roger Miret on bass, Vinnie Stigma on guitar, Will Shepler on drums, and then 12-year-old vocalist Freddy Cricien, Roger Miret’s younger half-brother. They quickly earned a reputation as one of the fiercest live bands around, winning over punk and hardcore fans wherever they plugged in their instruments.
“Hold It Down” (Epitaph) was poised to expose Madball to a larger punk rock audience, one that was ready to swallow a dose of something a bit harder edged than what they were accustomed to.
