MINDROUGHT / Bio

Bringing BASSCORE to the world!

Aaron Moore no longer fronts the band.

A Lead Bass Alt\metal\rock band With CHAPMAN STICK as the main instrument! Celebrating 12 years on the Detroit scene! After losing or beheading all members in 2009, TKO forged on ahead and has assembled the best lineup MINDROUGHT has ever had. Mike Casadei is by far the most complete and extreme drummer the band has ever had. Started playing at age 2 and now 30 years later, joins Mindrought. One day some angels sent down Phelan Young. Phelan has a degree in music from Wayne state and plays Bassoon in the orchestra. He also plays in the DSO and Windsor orchestra. Mindrought is a self proclaimed LEAD BASS band and Phelan plays 4, 5, 6,, 7, and 12 string bass in the band. . Here it is the ALL NEW MINDROUGHT. Produced by national hot hand Mick Maslowski.

CD review:MINDROUGHT

Mindrought's has returned to the scene after a few drummers a slew a bass players and singers. but this new cd blows doors off traditional metal genres there is no screamo/hardcore/nu-metal classification to label this with.i have to bang my head as soon as AVOGODRO'S NUMBER kicks in!! the cd rips ! plain an simple.its pure heavy metal. the vocal delivery alone on trepedation should sell any metalhead in the world.Mindrought has found that niche that makes them sound like no other band in the detroit area. different,unique,funky,technical and very progressive.I have been listening to this cd for almost two months and i cant get enough of it. can sing melodic as well as he can sing heavy! very machine head meets lamb of god with a hint of pantera and killswitch. and the influences of the the rest of the band could be compared to slayer,metallica,anthrax,dream theater,rush and disturbed.
Also, not alot of bands can say they have a lead bass player.those who have seen Phelan Young perform live with Mindrought knows this young man can play,he also plays a chapman stick.BY THE HANDS OF MAN should prove to all the bassist out there to follow your own path and dont just ride the E string through the whole song. This is what i love about this band the song US just completely changes gears starting off like an industrial korn tune.building into a cool groove with very catchy clean and brutal vocals .this has been TKO's baby since its inception and i think hes found the right combination in the current line-up including drum veteran Mike Casadei. .the new stuff sounds tight and heavy the way metal should be played.and the version of DRAMA is slamming! if mindrought doesnt get noticed for this cd then the detroit scene needs their head checked. this is killer metal go out and buy it ! see them play live you wont be dissapointed. all six of the songs featured on this cd were recorded in five three hour sessions.moundrought has covered alot of ground, good luck to them in the future
