A BAND OF ORCS
"ADDING HEADS TO THE PILE"
ITCHY METAL ENTERTAINMENT
A BAND OF ORCS hails from Santa Cruz and is exactly what you would think they
were from the name "A BAND OF ORCS". These guys are Orcs who play Metal music
and play it better than most bands out there. They remind me of GWAR mixed with
LORDI from the way they look, but play better than both bands. That's saying a lot, since
GWAR is my favorite band. I say this because A BAND OF ORCS play serious music
and ultra tight and fast Death Metal smashed together with Thrash Metal, where GWAR's
music is a little more comical. The ORC costumes aside, this band has the chops to be on
the top of the pile of the new wave of great Death Metal bands coming out of the U.S.
even though they have been around since 2006 and have been building up a strong
following around the world. The music is done in an old school Death Metal style with
very heavy Thrash Metal influences. The music reminds me of a lot of the bands U.S.
Death Metal bands from the early 90's. The Thrash Metal mostly comes out in the guitar
parts, especially from the arrangements and all the shredding riffs through out. These guys
really mix it up between these two styles and blend them smoother than just about
everyone else. The vocals of lead ORC Gogog Bloodthroat is done in a low ended Death
Metal growls style that is understandable and then goes into a more higher pitched Death
growl style. If you were to mesh together the best parts of GWAR, LORDI, AMON
AMARTH, ENTOMBED & EPIDEMIC together, your final result would be A BAND
OF ORCS. This is one Hell of a band that every Metal fan needs to hear. I can't wait to
check these guys out live, cause I'm sure it's a experience I would never forget!!!
