Wicked Earth is: Mike Montani (singer, promoter, provoker), Robert N.Tarquinio (guitar player), Zeus (bass player, web and graphic designer, disagreer) and Shawn Houy (drumer, promoter, agitator).
Bob is a blues and classic rock freak and he thinks Scotty Moore and Robert Johnson were the baddest dudes ever. Mike and Vic like modern, industrial, electronic and progressive rock. Vic also really digs the Gap Band and The Police. Shawn likes black metal, jazz, old country, tribal music and some weird stuff.
We write our songs by jamming together. Many local bands will tell you how unique and original their sound is and when you hear them you think, boy, this is neither unique nor original. We're not going to try to feed you any of that BS. Like Bob says, there's only 12 notes, how original can you be?
We just sound like a kick-ass rock 'n' roll band with a great guitar, great singer, and a solid, heavy bottom. Buy our record...we guarantee there's something on it you'll like.
