Drowning Pool have long been hailed as champions of blue-collar hard rock and metal, not just because of their consistently incendiary live shows and vastly underrated catalog, but because of the trials and tribulations that have marked their career. They aren’t unique in that regard. What they are is resilient, their everyman, working-class ethos and stubborn perseverance creating a bond few bands ever realize.
Nearly a quarter-century after starting together as a trio, founding guitarist CJ Pierce, drummer Mike Luce and bassist Stevie Benton remain together. They haven’t separated, so they can’t play the reunion card. And at the helm of the band for the past decade, Jasen Moreno is not only Drowning Pool’s longest tenured frontman, but he’s also the band’s first singer to record three studio albums. As anyone that has seen the band in recent years can attest, there is magic when the four guys share a stage.
The Las Vegas quartet push the boundaries of their signature style in terms of both songcraft and sonic experimentation alike.
Most importantly, the boys hold nothing back…
“Rock ‘n’ roll was always meant to be dangerous,” Adrian proclaims. “We grew up in the last era where nineties bands were Soul Rebels. They stood for something. They didn’t conform. Since the greatest risks yield the greatest return, why play it safe? We decided to swing for the fucking fences this time. In between the last album and now, we changed everything. I had two sons, and it took their births for me to go, ‘Fuck it, we’ve got to shoot for the goddamned stars’.”
Making metal disturbing again…
Emerging from Pennsylvania in 2018, nu-core gang Tallah combine the percussive force of second-generation drummer Max Portnoy with the pure fury of vocalist and YouTube sensation Justin Bonitz and the white-lightning speed of guitarist Derrick Schneider.
