Eightball Cholos, also stylized as 8 Ball Cholos, are a thrash metal, death metal, and sludge metal project that originated out of Sandston, Virginia in the United States. The band was created by David "Burrito" Villapondo of God's Victorious Army and Tracy G. of Dio.

History Edit

Eightball Cholos began in 1983 as The Warning, who released three demos during their time, until 1996, when they changed their name.[2] The band was created by David "Burrito" Villapondo of punk rock bands Conviction of Sin and God's Victorious Army and Tracy G. of Swift Kick and DIO.[3] The Warning originated out of Azusa, California, but before changing their name, they moved to Sandston, Virginia.[4]

The band released and recorded an album, titled Satan's Whore, which was considered an odd release.[1] The album was released through Morphine Records. Around this time, the band seemingly disbanded. In 2000, the band was featured on two compilation albums.

In 2009, the band reunited with the same lineup, and began working on a new album, titled Church of Whores, which would feature Mark Salomon of Stavesacre and The Crucified as a guest vocalist. The album was set to be released through Open Grave Records.[5][6] However, later on, the band announced an album titled ObamaChrist 666.[7] The band was also featured on a compilation released by The Bearded Dragon Productions.[8]
