Welcome to my new feature, I love this band. Each post will highlight a band or artist that may be flying (or has flown) under your musical radar.
This first one is about a fairly new band from North Carolina called Vanisher
Vanisher "Unbound", after first listen came a second and third, etc... it demanded my attention.
I cannot find much info about the band on their sites but it seems they changed their name a couple of years ago to what could be a reference to a semi-obscure comic book villain from X-men #2 in 1963.
As heavy as the band appears, they never lose sight of the melodic elements. Songs take strange and intriguing directions, yet remain catchy and driven. This is a 21st century hard rock sound with tight playing and hooky melodies.
Check out the debut track from their new album:
Reaction (from Unbound)
Here is something from their EP, a video they obviously had fun making.
Martyr To The Flames (from The Buried Alone EP)
And, just in time for Halloween, I found this Metallica cover:
Of Wolf And Man (Metallica cover)
If you are still not convinced to download their debut album, here is a sampler...
I believe in this band enough that they are getting played on both of my radio stations: http://RockfileRadio.com
Future posts will include artists both new and classic....just a little off the "beaten path".
Thanks for stopping by and sharing the love of music! (-']
