TRIGGERMAN HAIL TO THE RIVER GODS “... a suitably titanic-sounding affair that's recommended for anyone compelled by the power of the riff” Edwin McFee HOT PRESS MAGAZINE October 2012
With the release of their latest album, “Hail to the River Gods” TRIGGERMAN have continued to create songs that blend massive riffs, inventive rhythms and huge choruses.
The 4-piece from Derry City, N.Ireland described by METAL HAMMER magazine as, “a breath of fresh air to the genre” (Malcolm Dome-MH#223) worked with producer Frankie McClay in Einstein Studios for several months to put together a collection of songs that sits comfortably with their powerful catalogue.
Whether it’s the percussive swing of “Rage of the Goddess” or the apocryphal tale of “Blind Side of the Moon” TRIGGERMAN have written a collection of songs which they feel sure will be enjoyed not only in their recorded form but also in the live arena where the band really comes into its own.
TRIGGERMAN have had the pleasure and privilege in the past of sharing the stage with acts such as MASTODON, ORANGE GOBLIN,FIREBIRD,DRAGONFORCE and most recently, they played main support at Brazilian legends SEPULTURA’s only UK headline show of 2012.
Vocalist/Rhythm guitarist Bap says,” All the new songs fit well into our set, alongside tunes that are already fan favourites. “The band feels equally at home with the vicious attack of “Rise Of The Woodsmen” or the monstrous groove of “Th’on Strange Brew”. What matters is the quality of the riff and the power of the song.
"Triggerman’s third slab of dirty heavy rock is probably their best yet. ...all heavy boogie with menacing guitars with equally menacing prose, this is probably how rock music should sound, and probably would sound if you stripped away the ‘image’ and got back down to the meat and bones and gravy of it." 4/5
