Psalms of Silence is a melodic metal band with shades of progressive, groove. conceptual, and thrash hailing from Wheeling, West Virginia. Founded in 2011, personnel problems sidelined the band until late 2016 when a revamped lineup saw the bands rebirth. 2017 saw the band carving out a reputation as a ferocious live band with a take no prisoners attitude. In early 2018 Psalms entered the studio to record their debut album "In Silence There Is Truth," which was released in 2018.
Beasto Blanco has riveted worldwide audiences: in Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Spain, France, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Austria, Norway and the UK; at sea with the “Monsters of Rock” cruise, and across distant points of the North American heartland, from Anchorage to Los Angeles.
At the forefront of Beasto Blanco stands a potent triumvirate. Band co-founder, front man, lead vocalist and guitarist Chuck Garric, distinguished by his notable legacy as a touring and recording musician, is a creative force of nature. “Beasto Blanco is my inner beast, my Hulk, my Wolfman, the thing that I turn into when I hit the stage,” he says.
In a genre where a powerful female presence is rare, Calico Cooper notes that her role as the band’s high priestess serves as an inspiring archetype. “I get approached by women saying, ‘Thank you for being so strong and so powerful,’” she qualifies. Her interaction with Chuck – whom she is known to chase across the stage with a spiked bat — engages the audience with a dynamic that blurs the line between combat and romance.
More than a band, the members of Beasto Blanco consider their music to be a soundtrack for an expansive community. “We’re a lifestyle band, bringing culture back to rock and roll with this style of music, by what we do and also who we are,” says Brother Latham. “We call our fans ‘loyal beasts,’ continues Chuck. “They can reach out to each other, and always look out for one another just like any good pack would.”
Concludes Calico Cooper, “If you are a blue collar person who gets up and busts your ass everyday or if you’re a working mother who doesn’t get any sleep, then you’re in the tribe. We write about people who are down trodden and overlooked, but they don’t say ‘Hey, look at me.’ They have a silent strength to them – and they make the world go round.”
Both bands are forces to be reckoned with and are going to rock the place down. You are not going to want to miss it! You can buy tickets directly from Psalms of Silence by messaging them on their facebook page at: www.facebook.com/psalmsofsilence
