Hard rock in Texas has a new face. Well, five new faces to be exact. Seamlessly blending melody with adrenaline fueled, heavy rock and roll, Blacktop Mojo draws in everyone from old metal heads to people who’s radio dials have never left top 40 stations. With soaring, gritty vocals and impeccably blended heavy guitar riffs over top of a rhythm section that won’t falter, Blacktop Mojo’s live shows are sure to leave fans’ screaming at the top of their lungs with metal horns in the air.
Formed in the final weeks of 2012, Blacktop Mojo began cutting it’s teeth in the numerous country venues that Texas has to offer, but the guys never quite felt like they belonged. With each song they wrote, the vocals got less twangy and the sound from the amps became more gravelly and distorted until the guys had found their own unique blend of heavy southern rock.
In June of 2014, the young band put out their first full- length album entitled, “I Am” with help from producer Philip Mosley, and Mixing engineer Austin Deptula (Boyce Avenue, Prime Circle), which has had sound reviews in Team Rock’s Classic Rock Magazine and Metal Hammer Magazine, as well as LA Heavy Magazine, and Rock Freaks. The band has been playing shows to support the album ever since and has left each audience thoroughly rocked out. Some say rock is dead, but this band disagrees and after listening, you’ll disagree too.
