From Grand Rapids, MI comes ... The Soviet Union?
Formed around 2001, the religion that is punk factioned off a new church. It's creed: To rock your face off. With aggressive guitars; relentless drums; burning vocals and tenacious bass, the congregation is in good order.
Bringing the stylings of just about anything that rocks, Soviet Union's style has morphed its sound from its punk upbringings into a maelstrom of rock ranging from country to metal. The bands' biggest influences include the likes of punk bands such as Balzac, Misfits, Bruisers, Rancid; metal bands like Mastodon and Lamb of God; and bands that fall somewhere in between the extremities of rock like Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, and Tool. We love to rock, and we love anything that rocks.
"Caught your show at 10 Bells last night. You really gave the old stage a banging. Awesome energy and you guys looked like you would die for each other. It occured to me as I watched you play that bands (good bands that is) are the voice of the audience. Things that the audience can't or wouldn't think to say are voiced by the band resulting in a cathartic release for everyone. It's a heavy load and you guys carried it bravely." -Ginger Fig
