The Gran Fury
The Gran Fury
The Gran Fury is a rock and roll power trio out of Madison, Wisconsin. They specialize in driving, aggressive hard rock with metal, punk, and even industrial flavors melted in. The band's sound is driven by the gut-busting raw tones of guitarist Brad Richter and the hard hitting, intricate drum assault of Chad Ovshak. Holding down the low end as he howls over the top is vocalist/bassist Joe Price. The guys have spent years forging their unique, colorful rock style, and decades in the local music scene. They are about to begin recording on their first album and are playing gigs all the time.

Fresh from the release of their latest recordings "Shotgun" and "Voices", available for free download on their website, CBR have been working the region. "Pushing the sound is important. You've got to let people know you're out there, you're excited about performing, and you want to do your best to give them a great show." said CBR's lead vocalist and bassist in a recent interview.

Cold Black River was formed in 2013 by former sons of Helliphant ( Jeremy Roseland (guitar/vocals) and Eric Cobb (bass/lead vocals). After penning tunes for several months and collaborating with a shortlist of talented drummers, CBR finally settled on southern Wisconsin native Aaron Kanitz to complete the powerful three piece.

Boasting influences from Alice in Chains and Kyuss to Sabbath and Tom Waits, this trio know how to command the stage. "Nothing sounds better than when you've finish a song and some guy in the back yells "F**k Yeah!" above everyone else. Then you know you've done your job." Eric recalls.
CBR submerge the audience in a mix of heavy riffs, well crafted hooks and dynamic vocals. From the fast paced rocker "Shotgun" to the blues influenced super heavy waltz (did I just say super heavy waltz?) of "Voices", CBR don't mind culling sounds from all over the sonic map.

Cold Black River will soon be releasing a music video, shot from the perspective of their instruments, for "Shotgun" along with two more songs for free download titled "Old West Undertaker" and "Hollow Man" all direct from their website
Subatomic...a powerful, jam-oriented power-trio with thunderous, funky bass grooves...driving, tasty drumming...heavy, riff-laden guitar...and solid, insightful vocals. While influences and song styles may vary greatly, making the music hard to label, there are a few things that remain constant - the sound is huge, the music is powerful and honest, and whether or not you have a shred of rhythm, your head will bump and nod with the grooves.
