The Feral is a hard/alternative rock band hailing from Albemarle, NC. By blending styles of alternative, metal, ambiance, and other contemporary styles, the band has delivered a sound that while accessible, refuses to sound contrived or clichéd.
With influences ranging from Neurosis to Radiohead, from Deftones to Jeff Buckley, it becomes obvious that listeners will receive an assorted sonic palate, yet no note will sound out of place. Every sound heard is composed to accent the most important aspect of the music, the song. Each member of the band is equipped with a unique style; when converged, these styles create dynamic song structures full of movement and character. Each song as strong as the last and each with it’s own identity. The textures will lull listeners into a state of tranquility before seamlessly breaking into heavy grooves that send them spiraling back to reality.
While all members of the band have years of experience in the music scene, The Feral has been writing, performing, and recording for just over a year. In this short time, the band has performed shows and festivals sponsored by companies such as California’s Rotten Records and Ohio’s DJQ Management. These outings gained the attention of new fans as well as the sponsoring companies; Rotten Records requested the band’s soon to be released debut EP be submitted to them upon completion. The label claimed that The Feral were “the best band we’ve seen all weekend”. The Feral have also gained frequent airplay on Charlotte FM radio station 106.5’s local show “90 Minutes” and have become a staple on Myrtle Beach’s Internet station 101.9 the Fox.
This is only the beginning for a band with a sound this unique and songs this strong. Keep an eye and ear out for The Feral, because this band will not be kept a secret for long.
