They are a misanthropic mixture of dark, melodic Hard Rock even borrowing some progressive metal elements in spots. I think this will eventually be the hardest thing for a band of this caliber to break through in any particular genre, even fore fans haven’t heard of their sound.
In 2011 the band Dogbane released their debut Residual Alcatraz. Though I didn’t review that album I found it to be quite an impressive first album. Hailing from Greensboro NC, the band took to the scene in 2010 with a sound and style that was pure classic metal while at the same time maintaining a sound not entirely retro.
