Eggnogg is a heavy rock trio from Brooklyn, New York. Since their debut album in 2009, Eggnogg has masterfully blurred genre lines, transcending the redundant boundaries of modern rock music. Eggnogg’s effortless merging of melody, discord, psychedelic textures, and irresistible hooks defies expectation and refuses to be type casted.
The band’s unprecedented sound grows from the dynamic between its members. Drummer, Ryan Quinn’s thunderous rhythms and technical finesse are augmented by the bass and guitar work of principal songwriters, Justin Karol and Bill O’Sullivan. The two guitarists exhibit styles that are distinct, yet complementary, and their trading of guitar solos keeps the playing fresh and expansive. Atop monstrous riffs resound Bill O’Sullivan’s deep vocals, which vary from a bluesy croon, to a gut-wrenching belt. Together, Eggnogg crafts a sound that has been described as, “a mixture between Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd.”
Ever determined to push their music to new heights, Eggnogg continues to write new material. Planned for release in the fall of 2011 is a small four-song EP, and the band’s third full-length album will be out in early 2012.
"Simply put, Eggnog is brilliant! This band from Brooklyn, NY utilizes a multitude of tones and effects to create a psych-tinged ambience amongst heavy as all hell doom riffs. If you are in search of a spacey, fuzzed-out, infectious, bluesy...I could go on and on and on. Sometimes a band is so good I am at a loss for words. Here is a great review on Doommantia that truly captures the very essence of this remarkable band."
