Admiral of Black is influenced by the decades of great rock, metal, and blues music that predates them. Located just outside the great city of Chicago, AOB pummel you with a destructive double guitar tone, thunderous rhythm section, ferocious vocals, and searing guitar solos.
Is AOB the next revolutionary metal band in music, the band that’s redefining their genre, and bringing a new twist to the scene….HELL NO! That’s bullshit, and every band that claim they are….are full of shit. So what will you get with AOB?
They’ve been called "motorized southern metal" “grimy desert rock” "meat and potatoes metal" “metal as hell”, and the bands personal favorite “nothing special but extremely good at what they do.” And what has the claim of nothing special gotten Admiral of Black?
…Opening slots for: Black Label Society, Baroness, Karma to Burn, Black Stone Cherry, Priestess, The Last Vegas, Bible of the Devil, US Christmas,
…Being hand picked and flown out to LA to play in a showcase by Gibson, Guitar Center, and Motley Crue’s Eleven Seven Music and 10th Street Entertainment.
…Along with multiple tours booked and promoted through their own power and direction.
AOB independently released their debut album at the historic Metro in Chicago June 5, 2009. In January 2010 they signed a management deal with iLA (Inner Light Agency). Damon Moreno of iLA enthuses "Just take a listen to "Bitten by the Rattlesnake" and you'll quickly understand why these guys own"
2011 brings a new album along with the goal of more touring, living in the van, and destroying everything in their path.
