MOTOGRATER slams into Cape! Time To Metal Up!
Monday, August 8, 2011
Tuesday, August 23 2011 PITTER's CAFE & LOUNGE will present a night of Heavy Metal Madness. When MOTOGRATER slams in to town for one night. Hailing from Huntington Beach, California. Motograter is an American Nu-Metal band formed in 1995. They are best known for their homemade instrument the "motograter" - designed with industrial cable and guitar pieces that creates a very deep bass sound. The band is also known for painting themselves in a tribal style body paint for concerts.
It all began in 1995 with the invention of the Motograter. Credit goes to Bruce Butler, aka Grater, the innovator that created the deep bass-sounding instrument that is the band's namesake. With the release of their self-titled album in 2003, they hopped on board Ozzfest with their original members. With the help of the tour, Motograter attracted tons of fans Worldwide. Many thought the 2003 lineup was unstoppable; on their way to the top. But as most great things come to an end, so did they...Or so we thought? Motograter is back with the new breed lineup including original guitarist Nuke, Motograterist Mark Nosler, Twitch on drums, Mylon Guy on bass, Tyler Hole on rhythm guitars, and the barking yet melodic vocals, of Angel. Motograter has been locked away in the hills of Sacramento this past year writing the new album. They are now entering the studio to record with Motograter's original producer James "Jimbo" Barton. Maintaining their signature mud-like paint, the tribal look lends an organic feel to their burnished industrial sound. Adding technically sound, guitar solos and heavy double-bass to the mix, Motograter is sick as ever. What can be expected from the new album? "We are staying true to our roots...catchy melodies, fast paced beats but we have a more modern, HEAVY sound," says guitarist, Nuke. With that said, the anticipation grows.
In 2009, it was announced that the band was "back" with a "new breed" line-up, The "New Breed" sound is more in the direction of extreme metal and away from the tribal/aggro-rock of the original Motograter. The band's current demos do include electronics, however do not feature percussion which was an integral part of the original Motograter sound. The use of a traditional bass also adds a different feel, giving the band an even more full low end sound.
Opening the show is BLEED THE DIVINE and ARTIFAKT
