I rarely hype bands here because I'm hopelessly in a Classic Rock Rut/Rush and can never stop listening to Physical Graffiti long enough to be bothered. I have been surprised in the past and I'm always hopeful to find something new that makes me want to find that devil and shout at him! I am pleased to introduce you to Bang Camaro. An awesome band from Boston(yeah, I know, Boston) who describe themselves as "arena rock gone very right". I describe them as the future. I describe them as a band that makes me wanna dust off my best Bad Co. or Judas priest ringer(fuck it, I'll wear 'em both)and re-discover what it is like to be at a rock show with 6 beers in you and the gods of hellfire breathing down your neck.
What's different about Bang Camaro, you Seano-skeptic scourge,you? They have up to 20 lead singers on stage with them at all times, thats what! And they all bring the rock...sometimes with three part harmonies! The songs are melodic and tight and purged from the heavy metal parking lot/cheerleading section of hell, just left of the infinite wall of flaming Marshall stacks...this is well written, banging heads in your basement sing along catchy cock rock. Here they are on Conan raising the roof as they do everywhere they go.
I'm not a gamer...I'm too busy finding the next complaint with three fingers here...but apparently Bang Camaro is one of the featured bands on the Rockband 2 game...so if your semi sedentary like me, check that game out.
But for now, check out their new single.."Life is Hard on the Road" or request it on your local radio station...Epic riffery, great melodies, horns up inspired lyrics...and LOTS OF LEAD SINGERS.....its a perfect combination.
