Soul Unhinged prompts a connection to the vocals of Danko Jones, heavy bass of Clutch, dirty screaming guitars of Motorhead, and round off with the radio affability of bands such as Disturbed. Hailing from NYC, members Steve DiFalco (vocals), Tommy Pogue (guitars), George Guarino (bass) and Eli Rosales (drums) take the southern-fried rock sound and twist it with the bluntness of a Yankee, a sound that pairs well with any domestic beer and want for the expression of disquiet.
The track “Face Down” from the upcoming album release is one that stands out as single-worthy, combining bar-spitting realness reminiscent of Zak De La Rocha and a social statement fueled by crashing symbols, hard hitting drums, and garage punk rage guitars. This is one sector of the rock scene that has been missing for way too long, especially in such a restless social climate.
As an opening act for bands such as Eve to Adam, Wednesday 13, Sponge, Despyre, Misery Kills, Otep, A Pale Horse Named Death (featuring Sal Abruscato, ex-LOA, ex-Type O Negative) and Johnny Kelly (also ex-Type O) Soul Unhinged are long from novel to the road and stage.
