Retox

11/09/13 Time TBA

RETOX WAS BIRTHED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, SPECIFICALLY IN SAN DIEGO AND LOS ANGELES DURING THE LATER PART OF 2010. THE MEMBERS; BRIAN EVANS ON DRUMS, THOR DICKEY ON BASS, MICHAEL CRAIN ON GUITAR, AND VOCALIST JUSTIN PEARSON. RETOX HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS PUNK, POST-PUNK, HARDCORE, METAL, AND EVEN POWER VIOLENCE. BUT ANYBODY WHOSE EARS ARE NOT COMPLETELY DAMAGED BY WAY OF DECIBEL PRESSURE OR CONTEMPORARY MEDIA WILL AGREE THAT RETOX IS CARVING OUT A UNIQUE SOUND. THE BEST POSSIBLE DESCRIPTION WOULD BE SCI-FI/SURF/PUNK. THE SONGS ARE FAST TEMPERED CLOCKING IN SOMEWHERE BETWEEN ONE AND TWO MINUTES. THE GUITAR’S HARMONY AND DISHARMONY BATTLE EACH OTHER, ENGAGED IN AN ENDLESS STANDOFF. INTERWOVEN THROUGHOUT THE TIMBRE IS A DRIVING BASS ACTING AS A REFEREE FOR THE REST OF THE INSTRUMENTS. PROPELLING THE SONGS ARE DRUMBEATS CHOPPED UP WITH SURGICAL PRECISION AND STAMINA. THE VOCALS ARE LITTERED WITH SUBTLE HOOKS AS WELL AS NOT SO SUBTLE IRRITATION, INFLUENCED BY POLITICAL DISDAIN, HORROR, AND SARCASM. THE BAND'S INSPIRATION IS DRAWN FROM BOTH HORRIFIC MISFORTUNE AND SHEER IMAGINATION. EITHER WAY THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE LISTENER.
