TUNG Bio
--------
TUNG is an aggressive hard rock band that is heavily influenced by blues, metal, sensual angst, hatred overtones.

The band was formed in the month of the dead, October of "1998".

The singer, Leah Barrows has been singing for ten plus years. Her sauntering sweet melodies to spine ripping yelling to smoothed out Tibetan chanting. Leah's stage presence is amazing . Leah seriously rocks out with full energy and grace. While connecting with the crowd from the first note. The girl is a natural!

The guitarist, David Lyne has been playing all his life. David's style is what one would consider Rock and Roll Metal Blues. David's quiet stance and controlled powerful melodies add a level of sophistication to the overall
sound of TUNG's songs and live show.

The Bass player, Kevin. He also is the bass player
for Nocturnal Sun with other TUNG members.

The Drummer, Rey.

The Manager, Pimp (PeteRock) joined the band in 2001 to help take care of the things on the business side to help free up the band to handle what they love, MUSIC. While helping spread TUNG's live show by booking them from
Maine to Miami.

TUNG CD Review
--------------
Tung - "Wet Lie" (Fountainhead Records), 13-song CD
http://www.YourSound.com CD Review by Steev Riccardo
http://www.yoursound.com/bands_main.php3?band_id=2162&reviews_id=939

Its hard to believe that this record came out over a year ago with little or no fanfare. At first listen you can tell that musically the band has it together but it's not until the vocals come in and you pay attention to the lyrics that the real story starts to unfold. Leah Barrows writes and sings like an angry young woman. She almost sounds like a metal version of Polly Jean Harvey. She is not a classically trained vocalist by no means. In fact at times you wonder how she can continue singing the way she seems to strain her voice, but as you listen on it all starts to make sense.

Barrows powerful voice becomes more appreciated when put in context with the solid band that Tung is. Led by the heavy guitar riffs of David Lyme and a formidable ryhtym section in Bassist James Harris and Drummer Steve Quimby, "Wet Lie" takes you on quite the metal journey.

On "Saviorself", the band hits its peak as Barrows sings, "I come from darkness bearing the light, I cast no shadows in the dead of night, I cast no shadows in the light, to recognize Heaven one must see Hell". It even gets better on "First Life" which has a guitar riff that just won't quit, as Barrows sings like she's not only been to hell and back but left a few bodies squirming along the way.

On "Babylon" Barrows lyrics take a seductive turn while still walking on the darkside. "I'm here to be a whore, I'm here to turn you on, I'm gonna do a strip show...", but just when you are ready to relax and enjoy a few more seductive strokes she sings "if I hit you in the head it would turn me on...". Not sure if you wanna bring this one home to meet your Mother?

This is some of the darkest music to come from the Providence/Southern Mass scene in some time. Yet as dark and heavy as Tung gets, you can also hear a very accessible band with a bright future. As far as hard rock goes, this is pretty close to as good as it gets these days.

Megakungfu

Musically there is no other band like this.
Two thing that we at Megakungfu love are chic singers,
and Boston bands. Tung are both of these things, and more.

My favorite track on the effort is "The Scar". Musically there is no other band like this. It is like a heavier
Bjork, with music in the vein of Monster Magnet. Chances
are those names have never made the MKF screens. During
the chorus Leah belows out some "heys" with ambition and drive.

Segue to the guitar solo that shreds furiously. This is the perfect tune to get drunk to, so tip it back and get on with the next track.

"First Life" is sleazy. Vocally Leah takes a page out of Glen Danzigs book of spells. Hard hitting and slimy, the guitars slide across your ear like a snake, and I can't say enough about Leah's piss and vinegar vocal tracks. Danzig would be in love.

The ball buster track is "Babylon". The guitars wreak havoc, while Leah trades off with a sexy voice, and that Danzig demon voice. Another guitar solo mashes the song out, and you see images of bar fights breaking out all over Landsdown Street anytime these bad asses play!

I have used some big names to describe Tung. But these bands are brought up with complete respect. Tung takes little pieces of Danzig, Monster Magnet and others to make the sound becoming known in these parts as Tung. They may not be the band to beat your friend over the head to, but they are also as leathal as mean.

Derek's Scale of 1 to 10: 7, production is well done, lets hear more of those assertive vocals.

Suggested tracks: "The Scar" is fucking dope.


The Noise By Joel Simches

I'd be curious to see TUNG live!
"Musically, TUNG grew out of a musical alliance between gutairist David Lyne and drummer Steve Quimby. The band formed in 1994 prior to the incarnation of TUNG, years later they acquired bassist James Harris and then vocalist Leah Barrows (who writes all the lyrics) TUNG plays the hard driving rock that fans of Metallica, Soundgarden, Pantera, Guns n Roses, and Janes Addiction wet themselves (funny he said wet) over. Lots of pounding drums and fist pumping gutair riffs abound, punctuated by the tight, deep low growl of Harris' fine basswork. The vocals, at their best, are channeling Bjork as filtered
through Nina Hagen and Thrashing Doves. All the instruments are so meticulouly layered and produced. That being said, I'd probably be curious to see them live and hear more recordings.

Female Fronted Hard Rock Band Kick's It
I give TUNG's Wet Lie a rating of 4 stars outta 5, and 5 is
not far off. They are a gifted band with a style just about their own. This is a CD you can put on and just let run to the end, which is rare these days. Some of the songs that stand out more then others on this CD are Wet Lie, First Life (2 styels), Bitch Reality.

With Steve on drums, James on Bass, Leah on Vocals, and
"big bad" Dave on gutair, this band will drop a bomb on
the Boston and Rhode Island local rock scene.

This is a quick review of TUNG's CD "Wet Lie", look for
a more detail one from Pete Rock next week.
