THE HAUNTING IS THE DEFINITION OF TRAP ROCK.
A dark colored, fine grained, extrusive igneous Rock n' Roll from New York City, USA. A stone’s throw for a New Aesthetic, taking the best of hard rock elements and combining them with the needs of a modern youth and electronic vibes.
Vocalist, Tom Opiela, creates an honest, punchy, and beautiful thematic performance with his writing; alluding to current trends, while balancing a good influence of early 90's-'00's Rock!
The "Core Four" of Tom, Colin, Craig and John, remind many industry folks of early Linkin Park; whereas the group holds strong to their loving rock roots, but amalgamates with the ever-changing music scene, offering a new flavor of the universal genre. Much like a new lava exits the core, flows, and eventually cools back into the earth, becoming a permanent part of the scene.
The Brooklyn group is creating a New Aesthetic and energy in their concert. You will sweat, you will thirst, you will jump, and you will most importantly, use your brain!
