Today's New Band To Burn One To is Powerhead. They are from Australia. Their style is a down and dirty stoner rock. Very cool indeed.Their latest album is called Celestial Frankenstein and it's a monster. Their sound is a bit of hard rock and stoner.
Stoner Rockers POWERHEAD have been kickin' around the Sydney underground for a few years, living up a reputation for fun live shows, and sheer heaviness. Starting off in a more Rock'n'Roll Stoner direction the sound has developed into a grinding, doom laden, down tuned, progressive onslaught while retaining a sense of Melody and song.
Featuring long time warhorses Anthony Keena on guitar and vocals whom is also a respected live Sound Engineer in Sydney. Paul Hardcorben drives the Ludwig, x - seminal noise/metal act Public Hanging, and Charlie Holmes on bass and vocals, a talented illustrator and ideas man. Paul also plays in Rock'n'Roll act "The Devine Electric".
POWERHEAD have released one demo and an EP- "Shadow of the Thunderchief" a good recording reflecting the band a few years ago, but now the guys have completed a new Slab, the epic "Celestial Frankenstein" Recording and production was handled by Anthony to reflect the bands true sound of heaviness and intensity. Celestial Frankenstein is now available at iTunes, eMusic, Amazon and Napster.
