Are you looking for some down and dirty, no frills, kick ass, guitar driven hard rock? If you are I suggest you listen to the CD Flat Out Fast by the band Custom (from Seattle WA). Flat Out Fast is the band’s 3rd release in their 12 years of existence. And it’s the first new music from the band in 4 years. The band is comprised of original member and guitarist Corey Petro, vocalist Jacque Hartless, bassist Paul Yarnold, and newcomers John Norton (guitars) and Brandon Wilsey (drums).
Wading through a sea of new bands there are few that have made as positive impact on me as A Sound of Thunder. My first exposure was when I saw them opening for my very first Raven show. I was already pretty amped for the show because as a lifelong Raven fan to finally be able to see them was a dream come true. Typically under these circumstances I don’t care who is opening, but ASoT made such an impact on me with their songs and delivery I was blown away.
