- DAY OF SHOW
Recorded by Jonathan Nuñez (Torche), mixed by Ryan Haft (Capsule) and mastered by Nick Zampiello and Rob Gonnella at New Alliance East, this 39 minute-long, 10-song suite is constructed upon sonic architecture ornate as a royal catacomb and stunningly epic, like an ancient city frozen in time under a heavy sheet of black, hardened lava.
In their first 365 days as a band, drummer Beatriz Monteavaro (Floor, Cavity) and guitarist Gavin Perry became the undeniable sweethearts of Miami's disparate music scenes. To paraphrase a description of 80s movie hero Ferris Bueller, "The punks, the metalheads, the art-rockers: they all think he's a righteous dude."
In the grand tradition of Monteavaro's previous musical endeavors, Holly Hunt champions heavy metal's potential to transcend genre and become a physical experience. Though stripped down to the most bare essentials, the duo's innate technical chops, strong dialogue, and incredibly deep relationship to their gear produces a sound and style far beyond rudimentary tags like "heavy," "hard," or "brutal."
After a few years of destroying the south with blistering live performances sharing the stage with the likes of Whores., Weedeater, ASG, Cough, Black Tusk, and Rwake (among many others), Junior Bruce released their first full-length record “The Headless King” via A389 Recordings in 2012 and headed north in support of the record to play the A389 Anniversary Bash headlined by EYEHATEGOD and Integrity.
Shortly after the record’s release, tragedy befell the band with the passing of their band mate, friend and absolutely outstanding goofball of a human being, Brett Tanner.
To get from tragedy to triumph requires a metric fuck ton of perseverance which is a word Junior Bruce perfectly exemplify, so in his honor they decided to carry on and released an EP called “The Ocean’s Daughter” in 2014 while continuing to play shows and writing for their long awaited second full-length with A389 titled “Endless Descent".
Much like the climate and wildlife of the place they call home, Junior Bruce’s music is majestic and beautiful at times. It is also harsh, unforgiving, and as lethal as a cat 5 hurricane of soul-crushing riffs and howling vocals bearing down on a coastal Floridian trailer park.
Newly formed project by Josh Lamar (Mondo Generator, Can Can, Meen, Electric Nature) Aaron Hendrickson (Nigredo, Tree Witch) & Dwayne Jones (Order Of The Owl, Sourvein, Demonaut, Telestrion)
