When a band tells me they’re “riff-driven” stoner rock with metal elements and influences that range from Black Sabbath to Clutch, I check that shit out.
If they lied to me just to get my attention, I immediately erase the email. But I didn’t erase Bill Barry’s email.
That’s because his band The Gentlemen Bastards is fucking good. You can check them out at the end of this very post.
“Since I started getting your posts in my Facebook news feed a few months ago, Gunshy Assassin has supplanted Blabbermouth as my source for metal news,” writes Bill.
The band hails from Alabama, have a Canadian drummer and a bassist from Iceland. How in the hell did that happen? Alas, Bill’s email didn’t get into those specifics, but that sounds like a story I need to hear.
And The Gentlemen Bastards are a rock band you need to check out.
