Hailing from Dallas, TX, A Dozen Furies first gained attention as contestants on MTV's Battle for Ozzfest. The five-piece modern thrash band won the contest and earned a spot on the second stage for the 2005 run of the long-running heavy metal fest. The MTV exposure and constant touring, both on and off the Ozzfest circuit, led to the Furies signing to Sanctuary Records, which released their debut album, A Concept from Fire, in the fall of 2005. ~ Wade Kergan, Rovi
