Brace yourself for a vicious onslaught of shredding rock unlike anything you’ve heard in a long time. More explosive than a hailstorm of hand grenades, Blasted to Static delivers a cutting-edge offering that is both refreshingly new, and re-imagines the hallmarks of 80’s guitar histrionics as a sonic hurricane that will blow the roof off 2015.
Headed up by the incendiary vocals of Jeff Martin (Racer X, Badlands, Leatherwolf, Surgical Steel) and fret-melting wizardry of Stu Marshall (Death Dealer, Empires of Eden, Ex-Dungeon), with the rhythmic talents of Rev Jones (Steelheart, MSG, Black Symphony) on bass and session demigod Clay T on drums, Blasted to Static represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene.
But for all the high-octane, hook-laden riffing mayhem, the band’s versatility also encompasses acoustic elements and more subtle, understated interludes. “We’re embracing an organic approach with this band,” says guitarist Stu Marshall. “Don’t expect music from a single genre, Blasted to Static is all about full artistic freedom, so you might even hear echoes of Black Sabbath or Queen.”
Recording is already well underway for the currently untitled debut album, and concert dates for late 2015/early 2016 are in the planning stages.
Dangerous, unstoppable and impossible to predict, this savage yet focused shock-and-awe campaign will make any jaded metal fan sit the f__k up and take notice.
Shaking off the tired, formulaic monotony that many of us have become accustomed to, Blasted to Static blazes ahead into a golden future of guitar ripping rock.
