In their early careers, members of COLOSSUS were in several formidable punk rock acts, but thankfully came to their senses and embraced their irrepressible youthful metal roots. Now, armed with guitars and beer they are storming across the tundra of central North Carolina to conquer the world. COLOSSUS is setting out on the road on July 8th, and will continue through July until the 24th.
Raleigh, North Carolina’s COLOSSUS sound as if they were actually taking part in the original NWOBHM scene alongside Saxon, Diamond Head, Iron Maiden and Angel Witch in 1982, but cosmically slipped through a wormhole, winding up in 2010. Their new Tribunal Records EP, Drunk on Blood, spiritedly follows on the heels of their debut album, And the Rift of the Pan-Dimensional Under-Gods, and only further expands on their love of classic heavy metal, fantasy, folklore, zombies, science fiction and ultimately laying waste to any and all who catch their enthusiastic and sweat-filled live shows. Drunk on Blood is for people who like to party and remember what it was like to make music for fun. When listening to Drunk on Blood your knobs most definitely should be cranked to 11.
See COLOSSUS on tour this summer!
