Admiral of Black don’t give a shit about your trends. They make music that they love to play…period. Their sound is influenced by 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. Admiral of Black is out to destroy and conquer all that stands in their way.
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 “meat and potatoes metal” “grimy desert rock” “motorized southern metal” “metal as hell”, and the bands personal favorite “nothing special but extremely good at what they do.”
They are what they are…and that’s what you get. But at least they aren’t claiming to be something they’re not. In Chicago, sound-a-like and look-a-like rock/metal bands thrive on the current radio and media trends. How many more “modern” rock outfits can a city tolerate playing the same song over and over again? How many more can you tolerate?
And what has the claim of nothing special gotten Admiral of Black?
...Opening slots for: Black Label Society, Baroness, Black Stone Cherry, Priestess, The Last Vegas, Bible of the Devil
…Being hand picked and flown out to LA to play in a showcase by Motley Crue’s Eleven Seven Music, 10th Street Entertainment, Gibson, and Guitar Center as one of the nations top up-and-coming bands.
AOB independently released their debut album at the historic Metro in Chicago this past summer, June 5, 2009...and followed it with multiple tours booked and promoted under their own power and direction.
Prospects for 2010 are looking awesome - In January, AOB signed a management deal with iLA (The 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"
Next for AOB? Simple - more touring, living in the van, and destroying everything in their path!
