Follow the "Holy Smoke" to the land that's known for it's 10,000 lakes.............
journey towards the north, and lay claim to 10,000 riffs!
Its time to discover this unique "Northern Rock" blend from the midwest, developed and inspired by COUNTACH, a Minneapolis based rock band. COUNTACH (pronounced 'coon-tosh'), delivers heavy riffs,laden with a touch of southern comfort.
Founded in 2001,by guitarist/vocalist Bucky Jazsewski, COUNTACH has created a unique style of music with a collection of diverse musicians, including Dan Arboleda vocals/guitars, Dante Kester bass, and Brandon Laliberte on drums. The bands sound has been compared to Lynyrd Skynyrd interlaced with Corrosion Of Conformity.
"Countach play's straight forward, no frills, riff-centric rock and Roll” - Daredevil Magazine October 2004
COUNTACH has four albums under their belt:
Huge Rock- 2003 / Gasoline- 2004/ Frozen Waters- 2005 / As The Crow Flies-2007
The new album, "As The Crow Flies" is the current creation from the band, and the first album with its current lineup.
To COUNTACH's credit, as a band they have produced and released all four of their albums, with the exception of the 2005 "Frozen Waters" release on MUSHROOM CLOUD RECORDS. COUNTACH has parted ways with their former label MCR. COUNTACH has since formed their own indie label for 2007, ROCK MAFIA RECORDS.
"Countach isn't doing anything too over the top, it's just pure feel good hard rock and roll”-Stonerrock.com July 2006
COUNTACH has shared the stage with such acts as:
Dixie Witch, The Last Vegas, Drunk Horse, Weedeater, Pelican, Atomic Bitchwax , Dozer, Supagroup, Alabama Thunderpussy, Rwake, Speedealer and Bad Wizard.
