The "New Band To Burn One To" today is One Slack Mind.
One Slack Mind is a thick, detuned, body shot to the solar plexus, doubling you over with the impact of its memorable riffs and original hooks. Hailing from the Washington DC area, One Slack Mind is comprised of regional rock veterans, Rich Wilson (vocals), Blake Metzler (guitar), Rick Leith (drums, backing vocals) and Steve Fletcher (bass).
One Slack Mind is sponsored by Jagermeister, and is steadily touring the mid-Atlantic region, expanding their fan base, pedaling their wares and exposing the glassy-eyed masses to their unique brand of heavy music.
