Royal Thunder, Electric Shepherd, C Minus
Add to Cal
Royal Thunder is an Atlanta based, four-piece, progressive rock/metal, alternative band founded by lead guitarist Josh Weaver in 2006. After going through some lineup changes, Mlny Parsonz (bass/vocals) joined the group in 2007. Together, the two added drummer Lee Smith whom Weaver and Parsonz had played with in a previous band, and then last but not least Josh Coleman (rhythm guitar) was added to the fold. With a hard-hitting, hypnotic live show that is more of a ritual than a rock concert, the four piece has been capturing audiences with their passionate performances, sharing the stage with a range of artists including Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Wovenhand, Birds of Avalon, Kylesa, and many more. Keep this band on your radar in 2013 and beyond.
Electric Shepherd is San Francisco’s new premiere psych-rock outfit, formed in the summer of 2009. The jam-based trio draws heavy influence from 60’s psychedelia, freak folk/blues, indie pop, and heavy metal, while exploring themes based in travelogue wanderlust and dystopian moodiness. Herd yourself through vibrant landscapes, malicious utopias, and forgotten passions. Electric Shepherd's latest opus - 'The Imitation Garden' - was released in December 2012 to critical acclaim.
