Added Color / Mach Dharma / Vertigo Drift
Sporting the gnarly tone and haunting melodies of Queens of the Stone Age, Mach Dharma effortlessly combine the riff-age of bands like Rage Against the Machine or Foo Fighters with latin percussion, mixing sounds and rhythms of middle eastern music with naked and vulnerable vocals one might hear in witchcraft. Think of Muse and nix the classical in favor of a little more groove and flavor.
Imagine a bionic super-hacker taking on a legion of cybernetic cowboys. Now imagine a tight groove with a screaming guitar lick, nestled in a deep soundscape of the dystopian future. That’s Vertigo Drift, combining the alternative rock grooves of Incubus and Mutemath with the soaring progressive melodies of Muse and Porcupine Tree, all while nestled in the fun, adventurous spirit of Star Wars. While conceptual bands and albums have been around since the days of classic rock, this NY-based rock quartet decided to take that idea one step further and create their own sci-fi universe for communal participation.
