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.
Sounds of Innocence” is a record with an interesting concept. Since Kiko is first and foremost, a guitarist, though he has played bass and drums on some of his previous records, his playing is the centerpiece of the record.
The versatility of guitar player Edu Ardanuy along with the brutal and infectious groove of brothers Ivan and Andria Busic has made this triple team assault very popular in rock circles
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.
