Hailing from Auburn, New York, this collaboration of musical mad scientists formed in 2002. They are influenced by Stone Temple Pilots, the Foo Fighters, Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and 80’s Metal. They create a world of their own, while instilling the elements of the different genres. The band is led by Sean Muldoon’s soulfully melodic yet raunchy vocals. Guitar riffs reminiscent of B.B. King and Metallica are pumped out the dual guitars of Jeff Wiggins and Dan Dennis. A funky under current is created
by Doug Paradise, the bands low end maestro, and the hard hitting drum solos and fills are created by Shane Stillman.
The band has recorded 3 records on their own. Two EPs, the first being Scenic Route (2003), followed by…3 to Get Ready (2004). Then Into the Flames, released in 2006, was their first official full length record, winning them the Sammy Award for Best Rock album in the same year. For those of you not familiar with the SAMMYs, they are Syracuse Area Music awards that are usually held during the Taste of Syracuse each June. The album is described by CdBaby.com as, “...Powerful high energy retro flavored modern blues rock with heavy blues driven groovie guitars, a rhythm section that makes one wonder if they want to dance, kill or f@#k and a vocalist soulfully singing and shouting like a crazed preacher”.
15 years old. I remember the awe inspired feeling I felt and still feel to this day when I see them. Truly, when you hear them for the first time, you do not know what to do. Such a multi-faceted world is created when they start to spin their musical web. All you can do is enjoy the ride, absorbing it as it comes. It makes you wanna move, then it makes you wanna get wasted, then you ponder things of a philosophical nature and when the music turns and gets heavy you wanna pick up the nearest bar stool and hurl it across the room.
