Massive + Tequila Mockingbyrd + Black Aces
Meet Massive: a deadly 8 legged Aussie rock-monster that isn’t for the faint-hearted.
Assembled from parts lying around Melbourne in 2012, Massive are a volatile macho-rock engine fuelled on adrenaline, lager and a determination to party hard. Known to travel thousands of miles across the baking desert between gigs, these riot-starting, fist swinging road dogs mean business.
‘Destination Somewhere’ is the explosive follow up to the all-killer-no-filler debut ‘Full Throttle’. Expanding on the breakneck sound of the debut, Destination Somewhere is a scorching hot ten-track fury of Aussie Rock N Roll dynamite. Kicking off with the seriously badass riffage in the intro for ‘One For The Road’ Massive let us know that the next 41 minutes are going to pull no punches. Title track ‘Destination Somewhere’ creates an illusion of serenity with easy-on-the-ear guitar intro before bursting into an aggressive head-banger’s anthem and tracks like ‘Blood Money Blues’ possess a rock n roll arrogance that with few bands can pull off successfully. Frontman Brad Marr’s vocals reach new heights on this album most notably on ’The Fall’ and ‘Made of Stone’ surpassing the debut and then some. Massive stick firmly to their Rock N Roll principles from ‘Full Throttle’ whilst throwing in elements of grunge, alt-rock and psychedelia. ‘Destination Somewhere’ is a white knuckle joy ride that is certain to get the adrenaline pumping.
