In an era saturated with over-polished cookie-cutter rock, the essence of rock music itself seems to be losing some of its edge. Not the case with Opaq, a MA/NH-based hard rock band whose members have come together with natural raw sounds that stand the test of time.
On their debut album, “The Doldrums,” the chemistry is powerful, resulting in a heavy rock record that weaves its way through many genres and unique arrangements.
The simple but thick riffs bring to mind great bands such as Black Sabbath, Mastodon and Queens of the Stone Age. Opaq has roots in the past but is set firmly in the present. It is that combination that makes “The Doldrums” so original.
Opaq is finding its audience through intense, honest music. Fans who want to be enveloped in harsh reality will be attracted to the band's sound which is a musical testament to honesty, purity and brutality. Opaq's second full-length album is scheduled for release in August 2010.
