Rottweiller is a heavy metal band first formed in Seattle, Washington in 1983.


Rottweiller was first formed in 1983 by vocalist Paul Crisman, guitarist Michael Winston, bassist Tim Wolfe, and drummer Doug Marrapodi. This lineup released one song, "Intense as Hell", which appeared on the 1984 compilation album Northwest Metalfest.[1] That same year, Tim Wolfe was replaced by Izzy Rehaume just a few weeks prior to the promotional show for Northwest Metalfest.[2] In 1985, the band regrouped with Rick Van Zandt taking over guitar duties from Michael Winston, and began writing and recording (including a second version of "Intense as Hell") for their debut album, Screams of the Innocent.[1][2] However, this album would not be officially released until the band regrouped 15 years later with singer Ronny Munroe taking over vocal duties for Paul Crisman and began working on their second album.[2] However, Munroe eventually left and became the new vocalist for Metal Church; he was subsequently replaced by Martin Morin. In 2004, the band released their second album Rage of War.
