All Music Guide:
Formed in 1997 out of former Hatebreed members, Death Threat's hardcore metal sound lands somewhere between Sick of It All's aggressive approach and Napalm Death's thick sound. Quickly making a name for themselves with their popular live shows, the band traveled the East Coast until they had enough of a buzz going that they could score a record deal. Their first album, Peace & Security, came out in 2000 and was followed by more touring, including a memorable stint with Buried Alive. They returned to the studio in 2001 and by the spring of the next year, they had recorded For God and Government and it was released on Triple Crown Records. Before the dust could settle, they had already left for Europe to play with Agnostic Front and restart their grueling touring lifestyle. The next year, a split single with Over My Dead Body led to a co-headling tour between the two artists.
