Death Ape Disco are a ferocious and expansive hard rock band from Brighton/London UK, for fans of Down, Alice In Chains, Clutch, Orange Goblin, Soundgarden, and more. Death Ape Disco combines massive hooks and harmonies, huge grooves, and great musicianship to create skyscraper-sized headbanging rock music. Death Ape Disco will rain down riffs and harmonies until the sun explodes.
If you’re looking for a fresh sound in today’s rock scene, then look no further than Death Ape Disco. They mix the down-tuned guitars of modern hard rock with bands such as Down-influenced southern rock. And unlike some modern rock bands who just sprinkle on a few bent notes as an afterthought to a typical post-grunge sound, they utilize the southern rock sound to the fullest and create an excellent sound that’s anything but generic. They pull together their rock, grunge, and metal influences into a very confident-sounding album
They’re the rare modern rock band where no member really upstages the rest since each one is so talented. The vocals are complimented well by the talented companions. The guitarists display strong chops, making the most of their influences in their riffs and fills while also proving to be adequate at delivering the crunchy metal-influenced riffs as well. They also deliver plenty of magnificent guitar solos throughout the album. The drummer demonstrates a high level of technical skill for a rock drummer. He makes his presence known throughout the album, playing ear-catching patterns and constantly throwing in fills to mix things up. He locks in with the guitarists to make each song memorable.
